Do your financial planning, taking into account that you are charged foran accommodation plan that involves living on campus 7 days per week for the full academic year. Payment dates for accommodation are usually in August for Semester 1 and in mid-January for Semester 2. We do not offer weekly, monthly or any other frequency of payment and all payments are made via your accommodation account online - bank to bank payments, cash or any other form of payment is not available.
We encourage students to give careful thought to budgeting, as your accommodation is likely to be the largest cost item. You may have options to commute or stay or combine the two. If you decide to stay on a 7-day basis, campus halls may be a suitable option for you. 5 day weeks are often available via the Home Finder Service and involves living off campus with a host family or in the provate rented sector. This year with blended online and on campus teaching and learning - please consider how your course will operate before booking accommodation. To do this review your timetable or call/email your academic department to get the information you need.
Please follow this link for the full listing of on-campus prices and booking fees.
Incoming/New CAO students who catergorise themselves in the following categories should follow an additional process for their own category:
The booking form will appear on the Accommodation Home page on the "Booking Links" icon when we next open.
The online form of booking is the only one accepted. Paper, email, personal callers, telephone etc. applications will not be processed.
Please ensure you use a laptop or desktop only for booking on the day as the website is not compatible with a phone or tablet.
The format of the application form can be found below:
How the Application form will work on the day of Booking
On the day of booking the application form opens at TBC(IST) on a first come first served basis. The first group of students to click on the form and based on a time and date stamp generated by the system (the time stamp will be in milliseconds as demand is high when it opens), will be given automatic access to the form for booking.
- Not all students who gain automatic access to the application form are guaranteed a room.
- All other students who click on the link will be placed in a Queuing system behind the first group of bookers. For example if you are number 1 on the queue you are potentially the 501st person to click on the link (as judged by the booking engine).
- Should any of the first group of students not complete the booking, the first students in the Queue will get access to the booking form and so on until all the rooms are booked.
- The chances of booking a room from the Queue are low, especially if you are a higher number.
I am in the Queue, how will I know when all the rooms are booked?
Once all the rooms are booked a message will appear on the Queuing screen on your browser to advise all rooms are fully booked.
Important: It may be the case that this message does not appear on your screen if your browser settings do not allow the message to update or if pop up's are blocked on your internet browser. If this is the case or you are unsure whether to remain in the queue, please check on the Accommodation Office homepage HERE where we will publish all messages. Please do not call the Accommodation Office during booking as we will be unable to answer.
How will I know if my application was successful?
Once you receive access to the application form and choose a room, you will be given 15 minutes to make payment of the refundable booking fee of €500. On completion of the payment, a message will appear to advise that the payment was successful. Where a successful payment is made a transaction number will appear on your screen and a confirmation email will be generated to the email address you put on the booking form. Please note that when the booking is complete the timer may still keep counting down. However once a successful payment has been made and a transaction number received the accommodation is secure. Should you wish to confirm your booking, please log into your self-service accommodation account the login details of which will be in your confirmation email.
Important - It is very important to input your email address correctly in order to receive a confirmation email. To ensure that the confirmation email does not go into spam add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contacts.
Please note we will not be available by telephone until the afternoon at 4.00pm on the day of booking. However ASK will be open and you may email email@example.com if you have a query.
We do not operate wait lists.
