UCC Campus Accommodation

UCC Campus Accommodation offer several different residences near the main UCC campus. These residences are owned and managed by UCC, and are specifically designed for student life, offering security, a reception service and other amenities.

Privately Owned Student Apartment Complexes

Cork boasts a wide range of purpose built student accommodation (apartment style), which is privately owned, but caters predominantly to UCC students. We recommend that students consider all options when investigating their accommodation needs. You will find a full list of privately owned accommodation providers on our website 

Private Housing Options

The University is situated in a pleasant residential area where there is a wide variety of private housing options to suit individuals or groups.  Students can rent a room in a landlord owned student house or a room in a house that is occupied by the owner (known as Digs).  Rents can vary according to size, type, location, distance from the University and facilities. 

Please see to search for private rental homes and owner occupied houses. We strongly recommend that students book their accommodation early before arriving in Ireland to ensure your needs are met.

You should only book when it's safe to do so, being mindful of scams.  You will find advice on how to spot these scams on the Accommodation & Life website. If you have any concerns, feel free to email before making a financial commitment.
