Student Rates and Special Packages SPECIAL OFFER: The Residence is offering a Special Early Payment Package for students who pay for the semester or academic year PRIOR to arrival, via bank transfer. NO CONCESSIONS ON THIS PACKAGE WILL BE MADE FOR LATE PAYMENT. Students wishing to pay by installment will be charged the non discounted rate. Students paying by installments will be asked on arrival (check-in) to pay 2 months upfront.

Please Note:

All rooms are allocated by gender (no rooms will be mixed gender, unless requested). Common areas (kitchens and bathrooms) of apartments and townhouses might be shared by both genders.

Students who leave the Residence, whether it being of their own accord or due to dismissal, before the 13th of February in the case of the 1st semester and the 3rd July in the case of the 2nd semester, will not receive a refund (accommodation nor deposit).

Any students who leave the Residence prior to their original departure date, will only be allowed limited access into the Residence.

In order to secure your booking, it must be backed by a ‘safety deposit’ of €350 or US Dollar equivalent. This must reach the Residence before the arrival of the student, as otherwise there is no guarantee of a place and even then the booking can only be considered confirmed, after having received a confirmation email from The Residence staff.


Please note that bank charges apply when paying by card, therefore on return of the refundable deposit, bank charges will be deducted.
