Q. When can I move in?

Students can move in from the first date of term as specified on the price list. Students must contact the Accommodation Office to schedule a check-in at least 48 hours before arrival. You can email accommodation@gcd.ie with your check in time.

Q. What if I arrive in Dublin before this date, will I be allowed to go straight to my room?

No. unfortunately for insurance reasons we cannot allow you to move in prior to the date on your occupancy licence unless specially agreed with the Accommodation Office. If you have an early arrival request please contact live@ghr.ie.

Q. What should I bring with me when I am moving in?

You need to bring your own bed linen, duvets and pillows. You also need to bring cutlery and crockery. We do supply a kettle, toaster, iron, ironing board and vacuum cleaner. Bed linen (duvet, duvet cover, pillow, pillow cover, and sheet) and crockery & cutlery (1 large and small plate, bowl, glass, cup, knife, fork, and spoon) can be rented for the duration of your stay for a nominal amount (see price list for more details).

Q. Can I bring my own soft furnishings to the Halls of Residence?

Unfortunately, soft furnishings such as bean bags and floor cushions are a potential fire risk and are therefore not allowed. All furniture supplied in the Halls of Residence is fire rated.

Q. Is there anything else I should bring along?

Bring a positive attitude and a flexible, adaptable outlook. You will be living with other students who may not share your particular beliefs, views or habits. Respecting others will be part and parcel of your academic career. When you come to check in at the start of your stay please ensure you bring your Guarantee From completed by a parent or Guardian.

Q. What should I definitely NOT bring?

Don’t bring pets, large bulky items, deep fat fryers, candles etc. Also ensure that all electrical appliances meet the proper electrical safety standards.
