It’s only natural to want the best experience for your child during their college years. It’s a time of growing independence that we do everything we can to support and encourage them.

Many of our residents are experiencing significant change and challenge – whether living on their own for the first time, making the transition to third level education as a first year ‘fresher’, moving city for post-graduate level or moving country to study as an international student.

We want the best for them – as you do. That’s why you have our promise that our residents’ safety, welfare and security is always our top priority.

How safe is Heyday Student Living Dublin?

Carman’s Hall is a brand new building opening its doors for the first time in August 2019. It is built to the highest and most up to date planning regulations, and therefore, applies the latest health and safety standards in its construction.

Compliance Standards

At Heyday, we have selected the most rigorous compliance standards from Ireland and the UK, and we apply these as our standard health and safety process. This combines daily, weekly, monthly, and annual checks to ensure everything remains compliant and is maintained in a safe condition.

Is there Security?

The Heyday Student Residence is a building wrapped around an enclosed courtyard. There is electronic access control to and from the building, and CCTV from the street to each part of the building right up to the outside of each bedroom door.

During office hours, the building is manned by our Residence Manager and Assistant Residence Manager. Outside office hours, we have a security guard service on patrol.

How is the Location?

Heyday’s central Dublin location makes it easy for students attending most any college. Even if your student hasn’t received their exam results yet, they can book with us and know they will be either a walk or a short bus ride to college.

Being located in the heart of the Liberties means they’ll have an authentic neighbourhood experience. There are local fishmongers, butchers, bakeries, cafes and mom-and-pop shops, along with Tesco, Lidl and Dunnes grocery stores close by.

We’re also around the corner from iconic Meath Street, which is undergoing major improvements to redesign it into a vibrant street with numerous market stalls.

The Liberties is really the best neighborhood for students in Dublin. Read about it here.

Are you offering any booking deals?

Currently we are not offering any booking deals.

What do the different room classifications mean?

Room are classified based on a number of factors – layout of the room, direction the room faces, whether street or courtyard, floor level, illumination, window size and functionality, and square meterage.

How can I secure my student's tenancy?

Once they have completed the application form and paid a €500 Admin Fee, a €250 refundable damage deposit, and a €25 Kitchen Contribution fee, their tenancy is secure.

We will then provide your student with information on when rental instalments will be due.

Does my child need a guarantor?

If you are paying in instalments, then yes. If you pay the fees for the full year upfront, then you do not need a guarantor.

The guarantor should be a parent or relative who is an ordinary resident of the Republic of Ireland who will be responsible for paying the student’s fees.

How can I make payment?

You may make payment via a credit card terminal onsite or by direct deposit into our account.

Please note tenants are required to pay all bank and credit card fees associated with booking rooms.

Contact staff or refer to the licence agreement for the direct deposit details.

What about Fire Safety?

Apart from our rigorous health and safety compliance processes, we also brief our residents on safety, and in particular, on fire safety. This briefing is delivered by professional fire safety trainers who are active service Fire Fighters.

Our residents learn about the causes of fires, how to prevent them, how to use the equipment provided throughout the building, evacuation procedures, and how to safely use and store equipment such as laptops, mobile phones, tablets, hair straighteners, and hair-dryers.

To our knowledge, no one else in Ireland or the UK provides this safety service to residents in either student or private sector accommodation.

In addition, we provide a Portable Appliance Testing service to test all such appliances brought to the building by our residents – laptops, phones, tablets, hair-dryers, hair straighteners, and so on (where the appliances are more than one year old). This helps us to reduce the risk of any incident arising from faulty electrical devices.

What about Medical Emergencies?

We have contact details for and directions to local doctors and hospitals, and every resident is provided with these.

There are numerous pharmacies within walking distance as well as hospitals.

Someone is on staff 24-hours-a-day should there be a medical emergency.

Is there Pastoral Care?

We keep a list of the contact details of the student welfare offices in the third level institutions at reception and on our notice boards.

Each of the institutions has a variety of welfare services available – from student health centres, chaplaincies, counselling services and so on.

Heyday offers a variety of events for the students to get to know one another in the building.

We also have access to a psychologist/therapist should the student want some one-on-one time with a mental health professional.

If students are feeling homesick, they can always come down for a chat with the staff who are always willing to take time for the students.

What about Quality and Comfort?

Heyday Student Living Dublin has engaged the services of market leading interior designers to produce a beautiful and modern living environment combining plenty of comfortable space for private study and rest, as well as shared spaces such as our gym, our cinema room, and our multi-purpose room.

The multi-purpose room has been designed to be adjustable for use in communal and group activities from group study to seminars, through to social events.

Our residence is in a prime location, as close as possible to key third-level institutions. Heyday is a short walk from Trinity College, Royal College of Surgeons (RSCI), BIMM, NCAD and a host of other institutions. We are also near Dublin’s best shopping and cultural districts.

How flexible are the bookings?
