Living in Dublin

Dublin City is a fantastic place to live and study, with everything literally on the doorstep of the DBS campus. However there is an insufficient supply of student accommodation to meet demand in the city centre, which may require you to expand your search. The Dublin suburbs are vibrant and are well serviced by public transport, most being within 45 minutes of DBS by bus, train or tram.  

The DBS Accommodation Guide 2018/19, produced by the Student Experience Team, will help you find your ideal home while studying in Dublin.
