Sleep will be your much needed best friend at university.
Late nights of partying and studying will take its toll on your sleeping pattern and may even completely throw it up in the air.
Sleeping in until mid-afternoon because you went out doesn’t count as quality sleep either.
Try and have a bedtime routine and have at least half an hour of chill time away from screens as this will help you separate your daily activities and sleep. Also, try and keep your wake up and sleep times on a regular schedule. Don’t go over the 2-hour mark for a lie in. We know, this may be particularly hard if you’ve had a late night or have nothing, in particular, to get up for.
Are you a power nap lover?
Don’t overdo them. If you feel like you absolutely need to nap, set an alarm. Don’t oversleep and end up not being able to sleep in the evening, starting off a vicious cycle.
Eating and drinking just before you lie down can cause indigestion, heartburn or just make you feel generally uncomfortable making it difficult to sleep well, if at all.
Especially avoid caffeine before bed. Caffeine is a stimulant, keeping you alert and awake. Even if you think caffeine doesn’t affect you, it WILL hinder your sleep.
Aim to stop drinking anything caffeinated 3-5 hours before planned sleep.
I know it may be difficult while living in halls/with other people but try not to do everything from your bed. Keep it strictly for sleep and sex only and maybe a spot of reading.
Study at your desk and watch TV in the communal rooms. Believe me, it WILL make a difference.

Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
I loved it there !
Brickworks is a great home for whoever comes to live in Dublin for a while.
The friendliness of the staff along with the welcoming environment make for a great place to live. When I first entered the room, it felt like a hotel room : comfortable, modern and very liveable.
The neighborhood is as calm as it gets and you get to the most animated streets in 15mn.
The sunset view on the rooftop is the cherry on the cake.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
