There are a number of accommodations in Ireland, like university accommodation which is very expensive and cannot be found easily.

All universities have what is called halls of residence, which are as small flats hosting from 4 – 8 students, with a private bedroom and in common kitchen, living room and bathroom.

On – campus accommodation is  paid over two installments, In September and February, and monthly payment is not common in Ireland, and students have to pay one month in advance via students’ bank accounts, and this deposit will have been refunded by the time of leaving.

The luxorious facilities  such as heating, electricity must be paid for as these utilities are extra in each accommodation. But Students who choose to have an independent accommodation must pay on monthly basis with the first month paid in advance, and will have been refunded when leaving if there are no damages caused by students to different facilities of a rent.

The length of a lease is 9 – 12 months. The deposit will be deducted if any term of the lease is violated, as the deposit is given to a student one month before leaving the rent.
