Dublin is a booming centre for higher education. There are currently some 80,000 full time students studying in Dublin’s nine higher education institutions and a further 100,000 students coming to the city to study English language courses each year. Both central government and Dublin City policies strongly support the promotion of Dublin as an international student city and the provision of good quality purpose built student accommodation is seen as a key element in meeting this objective. Compared to many other European higher education markets, domestic mobility of students is relatively high at almost 50%, compared to the UK at 40%.
Our current build program in Dublin totals approximately €130m and also provides a significant level of local construction employment.
Our residences in Dublin are operated under the Uninest Student Residences brand.
