Your summer holiday is here, Hooray! Don’t fall down the rabbit hole of Pj days and eating pizza in bed at 10am. Don’t sit there scrolling through your Instagram feed and looking at your friend’s ‘amazing summer’. Take a look at these tips to help your summer become more meaningful and fun.
Before you know it, it will be September and all you will have to show for your time off is that you made your way through three entire series on Netflix.
Find A Summer Job – Many companies will offer student contract jobs just for working with them during the holidays. You could mix it up by working a part time paid job and also volunteering. It will look great on future CV’s.
If you can find something relevant to the University course you are studying then go for it. It could bring up some amazing opportunities for you, especially if you manage to impress your employer.
Go Travelling – Not only is traveling amazing fun, it can also teach you new skills and educate you without you even realising it. You could even try a working holiday.
Study – I know, it’s summer, who would want to study whilst supposedly being study free BUT if you are going into your final year particularly then you may want to reap the benefits of being extra organised during these weeks. Just doing a little each week will make a huge difference and impact your final year in a positive way.
Prepare – If you are going into your first year of University then summer is your time to prepare. Packing your life up, buying all your new bits and bobs and preparing to move to a new city. Have everything packed and ready well before you are due to move so you still have time to have fun and maybe attend that Festival you wanted to go to.

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!
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.
Excelente ubicacion, atencion y servicio. Muy cuidado todo, las recepcionistas siempre ayudando y dando atencion. Lo recomiendo.
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.
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.
