If you haven’t already packed your stuff up and moved, you will be in the coming weeks. After what has been one of the warmest summers on record, we are now heading into autumn and cooler weather is fast approaching. Do not fear as there are plenty of things you can look forward to.
You Have Freedom
You will now have the freedom you have likely never experienced before, especially if you have never moved from your parents home before. There will be nobody asking you where you go, no unannounced visits into your room. You are now in charge of what you do and how you spend your time.
It will take a while to get use to your new surroundings and make your new place home. Don’t worry if you feel worried or nervous to start with as most people experience this and it soon wears off after a few days or weeks. Make your room as cosy as you can and put your own stamp on it.
Making New Friends
You will meet all kinds of people during your first week but most importantly you will likely meet some of your best friends during freshers. You will have to accept that there will be people you love and get along very well with but there may also be people you don’t.
Discounts & Freebies
Go along to freshers fair and you can expect to leave with a bag full of samples, goodies, and discounts from local businesses, bars and food chains. This will also be the week you get your student card which you will soon find can provide you will all kinds of discounts.
Don’t forget about the main reason for coming to uni in the first place! You will meet your course mates and your teachers for the upcoming year. You will find out about what each module on your course is all about and what to expect from it.

What our students say
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.
I had an excellent experience living in Brickworks during the last year in Dublin! All the staff members were always very friendly and did everything they could to make people feel welcome and we had a very good atmosphere among the residents. The flats themselves were comfortable and provided excellent living and working space, and the proximity to the city centre means you can experience the Dublin atmosphere. I have met many people and friends that I will take with me for life. If I were to live in Dublin, I would not hesitate to live in Brickworks again, it really was a great place to live!
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
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.
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.
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.
