A Home From Home
At The Institute of Education, we want to make sure that our students feel happy and settled in their new homes.
Whether you are looking for a supportive family environment or would prefer to live with other Institute of Education students in our dedicated student apartments, we can help you find the home from home that suits you best.
Our Student Accommodation
In partnership with Aparto, The Institute of Education’s student accommodation is located on the doorstep of Dublin’s City Centre in a modern, purpose-built residence named The Loom. With two floors reserved solely for our students, you won’t need to worry about making friends and finding your feet. Your classmates and our school’s resident House Parents will be with you every step of the way.
There are always friendly and knowledgeable staff members who are based in reception 24/7, to answer any questions or address any queries you might have. Your ensuite room will be clean, comfy and all for yourself, with a shared kitchen and living space. If you need some downtime, you can chill out in the cinema room, head to the gym, or get some fresh air on the rooftop terrace.
Our host families are carefully selected and fully police-vetted, ensuring that you will have a welcoming and supportive home during your time here in Dublin.
Like the families themselves, our homestay accommodation is all different! Some of our hosts have children, pets and a full schedule of family life, while others may choose to host a single student instead. Typically, though, you can expect your own bedroom with a study desk, alongside either a shared or ensuite bathroom within the family home. A breakfast and evening meal will be provided, along with lunch when you are not at school. As our host families are based within the suburbs of Dublin city, you will be travelling to school by bus or tram every morning.
“My host family are such a sweet family to live with. They make me feel so welcome and comfortable. Oh, and they also give me excellent food!”
