Q. What will my address be?
Due to data protection we do not release details of your apartment number before your arrival. The following is an example of how your mail should be addressed once you arrive.
Mr/Ms Joe Bloggs
Apartment Number XXX
Griffith Halls of Residence
South Circular Road,
Correctly labelled post is delivered by the state company, An Post, to your apartment mailbox. Incorrect postal addresses will delay the delivery of your post and may not be delivered at all. Packages are usually received in the Accommodation Office
Q. When is the pedestrian turnstile operated?
For the safety and comfort of all our residents we operate a ‘quiet time’ between 23:00pm to 07:00am each evening. Access during these times is restricted to just pedestrians (no vehicles) and by way of the turnstile. Only GHR residents registered for the turnstile will be able to operate it.
Q. Will my room or apartment be cleaned on a weekly or monthly basis?
The apartments are self-catering and therefore you and your fellow residents are responsible for the cleaning of your bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and living room. Cleaning inspections will be arranged during the year to ensure the apartments are kept in a good condition.
Q. What are the opening hours of the Accommodation Office?
During the summer we are open seven days a week from 9am – 8pm. During the academic year we are open Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 1pm and 2pm to 5:30pm. Outside these hours and at the weekends, our security staff are available in the event of emergencies.
Q. What is the role of Security?
Security carry out regular external patrols of the Residences out of office hours. Residents are responsible for their own security, that of their apartment and their possessions. Residents should ensure that they have their key fobs and ID cards on their person at all times. Giving access to residents who are locked out is not a priority for Security and may mean that you will have to wait before they can reach you. So don’t forget your key fob.
Q. If I leave the accommodation before the end of my lease, do I get a refund?
The lease is a fixed and legal contract so no refund can be issued in the event of early departure for any reason.
