Finding the right place to live is an important part of college life and there are several different options available for students who move away from home including:
- Student on campus accommodation and student specific accommodation near colleges
- Renting a property from a private landlord
- Renting a room in the owner’s house (often referred to as digs) *
The Union of Students in Ireland has re-launched its website homes.usi.ie, a room rental registration website for students looking for accommodation and for landlords who can lease vacant rooms to students during the college term tax-free up to the value of €14,000 annually through the rent a room relief.
