Most people will agree that your living situation can heavily impact your overall college experience. Whether you are leaving home for the first time and moving to a new and unfamiliar city or returning to college to continue your study having a comfortable home away from home is paramount. Let’s face it, more time will be spent either studying or watching Netflix in your room with housemates than attending lectures. That is until deadlines come around and the library becomes your new home.
With spring in the air, summer is just around the corner and soon enough we will be embarking on the new academic year. This year, make sure you don’t leave selecting your accommodation to the last minute and avoid getting caught up in the housing hysteria. Or worse again end up living with your Great Aunt Nora whom you have never met but happens to have a spare room in Dublin.
Fresh Student Living has some great housing options for anyone studying in Dublin. Opening in September, the brilliant new Brickworks student accommodation building will offer a stunning selection of en-suite single rooms and twin rooms in an ideal Dublin city centre location, plus a roof terrace, gym and study areas. To help with your decision and save you from your Great Aunt Nora we have compiled a list of five reasons why students should consider Fresh Student Living in Brickworks for this academic year.
1) Location, Location, Location
Brickfield Lane, Dublin 8 is a prime bit of real estate in Dublin.

This impressive location means its an easy commute to all the main colleges and is within spitting distance of the National College of Art and Design, as well as being a short 8 minute bus journey to DIT Aungier Street/Kevin Street Campus and 13 minutes bus journey to Trinity College Dublin. There are also numerous convenient direct bus routes to DCU and UCD.
2) Modern, Trendy Interior

Brickworks is in the absolute perfect location for experiencing the best of what Dublin has to offer from a cultural and entertainment perspective.

For the big nights out Brickworks is less than a 10 minute taxi to Camden Street and Harcourt Street, Dublin’s go-to spot for all the best bars, to suit all tastes. Finally, if you want a little break from town, Smithfield with its fantastic selection of bars, restaurants, cafes and vintages shops and home to The Lighthouse Cinema, one of Dublin’s best movie theatres, is just a twenty-minute walk away.
