Staying in Ely

More than just a university residence, Ely offers students a ‘home away from home’ where a spirit of family is fostered. We organise various activities throughout the year designed to complement a student’s studies, not distract from them, and to help them develop universal skills and see their future professional life as a way to serve society.



Students who are thinking about the possibility of applying to stay in Ely are welcome to visit the centre by arrangement (with their family if they would like). They will be shown around the centre and introduced to other residents.



Ely combines Georgian refinement with modern facilities. We have 14 single-study bedrooms, a state of the art study room, free WiFi, a library, two conference rooms, two Georgian sitting rooms, a dining room, and a Chapel.



Fees are €6,000 for the thirty-week academic year paid in two instalments. This includes meals (breakfast, dinner, and supper), your room, cleaning, bed linen, personal laundry, WiFi, and full use of the study facilities. 

Who may apply?

We welcomes students from all social, ethnic and religious backgrounds. We do, however, have some basic requirements. We are a male only residence (although we have a sister residence for women), we only admit students between the ages of 18 and 28, and we can only offer places for language school students during the Summer months.
