Accommodation

IADT currently does not have any on-campus accommodation, nor does it maintain a formal accommodation list. We advise students to consult relevant websites eg. daft.ie, newspapers and local community notices which provide good information on available accommodation.

Our Student’s Union publishes all accommodation information that they are aware of on their Facebook page.

Renting Accommodation

IADT is situated in the Dún Laoghaire/Deansgrange suburb; click here to view our exact location. The Institute is well served by the Dublin bus routes 46A, 75 and 63 bus routes. Any accommodation on these bus routes would be suitable. For information on the areas served by these routes please consult www.dublinbus.ie. Please note that IADT is approximately 3km from Dún Laoghaire DART station and you would require a connecting bus (46A, 75 or 63) to get to IADT’s Kill Avenue campus.

Letting Agents

Letting agents are independent businesses that specialise in the rental market. Before you pay for any services or lists of accommodation, have a clear understanding of what services your will be getting for your money.

Accommodation Advice

Students are advised to know their rights and responsibilities. Hopefully the experience of renting accommodation will be a positive one for both student and providers alike. Should problems arise, listed below are the contact details of organisations who offer advice and assistance.
