A Home From Home
At The Institute of Education we want to ensure that all our international students feel at home and supported while studying in our school.
Whether students are looking for a supportive family environment with a carefully selected host family, or prefer the more independent option of a university student residence or private rental, we have a range of safe and secure accommodation options that can be sourced independently or with the assistance of our International Office before you arrive.

The Institute of Education is partnered with Heyday Student Accommodation, who offer newly built and professionally run accommodation for international students in the city centre.
Accommodation typically consists of an ensuite bedroom in an apartment that is shared with four other students. There is also a kitchen, dining area and living area that is shared with the others in the apartment, along with an onsite gym, study room, media room and other facilities.
Separate accommodation is available for students who are over 18 and under 18, alongside staff and security on site 24/7.
Staying with a host family is a great way to get an authentic Irish experience. We work with a large network of carefully selected host families who provide a welcoming and supportive ‘home away from home’ for international students studying in our school.
Typically, homestay accommodation consists of a bedroom with either a shared or ensuite bathroom in a family home. A breakfast and evening meal are provided, along with lunch on non-school days, and the accommodation is approximately 30-45 minute journey by public transport from our school.
“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!”

Some students prefer to stay in a privately rented apartment. This is not something our International Office can assist with, as the rental agreement is made between a landlord or letting agency and the student.
Prices can be high in Dublin and supply is currently quite low, so students are advised to they give themselves plenty of time if they are interested in finding a suitable privately rented apartment.
