We think we’re pretty great, but here’s what some of our students have to say about living with us

I stayed for 7 months at Highlight Parkgate student’s residence and I had the best experience. They’ve always been concerned about all of us, they are available 24/7, there’s always someone at the front desk and the staff team is just so amazing. On top of that, if you’re a TU Dublin student you’re eligible to get a discount!


Currently staying here for uni, the place really does feel like a home from home. The staff are amazing and so lovely, the location is great, and there are lots of bonuses, such as a gym and study room. Can’t recommend enough.


Amazingly nice place to be living in! City centre access is easy with the red luas. Lots of stations around for dublinbikes. Lidl and Centra also near by! Quality of construction is same as you see in the images on website, just like right out of the pictures. Love the Social spaces and very well managed!! The staff is really helpful and amazing!
