Choosing a Place to Stay

The most popular ways of finding accommodation are:

While every effort is made to facilitate students seeking accommodation, the Institute is not involved in any agreement/contracts entered into between students and landlords. We are happy to discuss any problems students may have in their accommodation and try to help resolve them in a reasonable manner. Information Leaflets on Tenants Rights, Student Possession Insurance & Fire Safety in Rented Accommodation are available from the Accommodation Office which is located on the first floor of the CIT Student Centre, Bishopstown Campus.

Please note that our phones are extremely busy during peak times. Please leave a message and we will respond to your query in strict rotation. If you would like any information on the student apartments you can also contact them directly. The shared housing/lodgings list is available to students in early May and they are updated regularly.
