We offer two types of accommodation to incoming students.

HOMESTAY ACCOMMODATION (Available year-round, subject to availability)

We offer carefully selected friendly local host accommodation.  Staying with a host family is an ideal way to practise your English in real-life situations.  It includes Bed & Breakfast and an evening meal.  Transfers to and from Cork Airport or Cork City Centre may also be possible but is not guaranteed by all families.  Students should be prepared to pay some taxi costs.

  • €240 per week + €40 per extra night

(We assume Sunday arrival and Saturday departure for all accommodation booked.)


For students who prefer self-catering accommodation, UCC offers, subject to availability, rooms ensuite in one of its campus accommodation complexes, ie: Victoria Mills or Victoria Lodge.  All are situated a short walk away from UCC and this option allows you the opportunity to mix with other students while studying in Cork.

  • Price to be confirmed for 2023

(We assume Sunday arrival and Saturday departure for all accommodation booked.)

Please note:  
  • Due to high demand, self-catering accommodation is in short supply for the month of July this year. 
  • We reserve the right to offer alternative accommodation at any point during the summer should campus accommodation not be available for the period that you would like to be with us to follow your course.
  • If we find alternative accommodation for you in a private apartment complex it will either be within a short walk of the campus or on a regular bus route to the main campus.  
  • Additional fees may be applied to alternative accommodation, but you will be notified in advance if the price exceeds the price that we have published for summer campus accommodation.

Please see for general information about living in Ireland as an international student.
