We provide the information to allow you to make well informed choices.  The advice and information supplied is for information purposes only and should not be construed as a recommendation.

For a student who does not live within commuting distance of the institute, finding suitable accommodation can be difficult.

  • What will it cost?

Students have a number of accommodation choices off campus while studying at Waterford Institute of Technology.

  • Staying with a family - otherwise known as digs - which is on a partial board basis. This includes bed, breakfast and evening meal.
  • Staying in a flat or rented house, which involves catering for oneself.
  • Privately owned student complexes.
