Students will be housed in River Apartments, an on-campus student residence. Students will live in single rooms with a private (ensuite) washroom. Wifi, weekly housekeeping and all utilities are included. Students will have access to shared kitchen facilities, a dining room and lounge area, and token-operated laundry machines. Breakfast and lunch will be available for students from Monday to Friday. Students are able to access all facilities on campus. Note: Students in this program cannot opt out of accommodation.
No group flight is available for this program; students must make their own travel arrangements. Please note that if you choose to arrive earlier or leave later than the available dates for the accommodation option you have selected, you will be responsible for arranging your own arrangements.
The Summer Abroad office will send recommended flight details to admitted students.
All students are responsible for making sure that their necessary travel documents are in order for them to enter the United Kingdom as visitors. Information on the entry requirements is available from the embassy in Ottawa:
Embassy of Ireland: Suite 1105 (11th floor), 130 Albert Street, Ottawa ON tel: 613-223-6281
At the time of our brochure publication (December 2019) Canadian citizens only require a passport valid for at least six months beyond their return date to enter Ireland as a visitor. Citizens of other countries may require visas.
If your flight plans include a stopover in another country (even if it is just a few hours long), you should also check that country's visa requirements in case you require a transit visa for the stopover.
Health and Safety
All students admitted to the Summer Abroad program are required to successfully complete an online Pre-departure Orientation (PDO), which will provide information and advice on international health and safety issues. Students are also strongly encouraged to attend the in-person Ireland PDO.
