I don't know


As a first year its ok but i find that it all depends on who you live with. Its very easy to become uncomfortable when living in such a small place with people you dont particularly get along with.

If yes, where and why?

Clonskeagh - dundrum area. i think its one of the nicer areas outside of ucd compared to stillorgan, blackrock etc. plus nearby luas which is a much more convenient mode of transport

How would you recommend this college to a friend?

Its a college that takes an interest in your learning, the lecturers and demonstrators are always helpful and the social life makes it easy to fit in.
