If I want to book for the September intake, when is the best time to do so?

If you are selected for the September intake, you may begin your search for Cork student accommodation between January and March, or preferably around six months before your intake.


Do Cork student homes offer short-term stays?

Some Cork student accommodations have the option of short-term stays. Checking the availability of your student accommodation of choice during your desired period is recommended. You can also refer to a Casita accommodation expert to help you find accommodation that accepts short-term stays.

Are instalments an option when paying my student room rent?

Yes, you can pay in instalments. However, some providers may require you to have an Irish guarantor. Refer back to your accommodation expert for further help on the matter.


What is included in my rent?

This mainly depends on the provider; many Cork student accommodation options offer essential utilities such as electricity, water, heating, and gas in the rent, while some also offer Wi-Fi and insurance at no extra cost.

What is a guarantor, and will I need one?

A guarantor is a person who signs the rental contract with you and commits to paying your rent if you are unable to do so yourself. A guarantor is most often a family member, but it can be anyone. Some Irish landlords require you to have a guarantor, so you’ll probably need to find one if you’re moving to Cork.

We recommend you either check with the provider or contact an accommodation expert to get all the necessary information. 


Can friends stay together in Cork student accommodation?
