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

Reasonably sized room, sunny and very warm in winter, perfectly soundproof. The residence has all the services, the environment is very pleasant and quiet, the facilities are clean, the gym is complete and well ventilated. The staff is very friendly and always ready to help. Absolutely advisable for students who need accommodation.

Really high quality student accommodation in a fantastic location for easy access to the city centre and nearby National College of Art and Design (NCAD). Nice friendly staff and atmosphere as well as spotlessly clean throughout. Loads of shops, restaurants and nightlife on your doorstep. Big sized student social area and spacious study area.

Highlight student accommodation is a very remarkable residential area to live, with its strategic location and uncompromising effort to please and make everyone feel comfortable away from home. All these attributes towards Highlight student accommodation would not have been possible without the exceptional, outstanding staff.
