There is pretty much an app for everything these days so why not use them to your advantage? Whether it’s for taking notes, keeping fit or stopping you texting THAT ex, there is an app for you to make university life easier.
A meditation and mindfulness app that is said to help reduce stress and anxiety. They say ‘ meditation has been shown to help people stress less, focus more and even sleep better. Headspace is meditation made simple. We’ll teach you the life-changing skills of meditation and mindfulness in just a few minutes a day’
You can get a 10-day free trial to see if you really benefit from it.
Find My iPhone
A pretty self-explanatory app. It can locate your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or your MAC on a map. If you lose your phone on a night out you can remotely lock it with a passcode which will put a custom message on the lock screen.
If you just lose it in your student digs and can’t for the life of you find it, You can play an alarm for two minutes at full volume (even if your device is actually on silent)
This is a free app for housemates to keep track of money when splitting bills, rent, food and even nights out. Everybody will be billed for their share and it will be sent directly to the provider.
It’s a great way to give you peace of mind instead of trying to chase money.
An app we think everybody should have as standard anyway. You simply add friends and family from your contact list so they can see your location and status in real time. You can let them know if you feel nervous while out and about at any point and there is also an ‘alert your local’ police feature if you find yourself in a dangerous situation.
Another one we think should be standard on students phones. We’ve all been guilty of drunk dialing, well now you can be safe from that ‘morning after the night before’ dread.
The drunk mode app has 5 features…
Stop Drunk Dialing – The call-blocker hides select phone contacts when you want to get drunk so you can’t contact these selected numbers for up to 12 hours.
Find My Drunk – The friend finder allows you to track your drunk friends via GPS so you don’t lose them when you are out partying.
Breadcrumbs – Shows you where you went last night after that crazy party or bar crawl.
Find A Safe Ride Home – Quickly find a ride home or walking directions to your friends locations.
Hotspots – Find the best parties around you in select cities & colleges with our heat maps that display in real time how busy an area is and the girl to guy ratio.
Live/real time transporting updates every minute to keep you up to date when travelling from A to B.

What our students say
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
