At Nido, we ensure you are never far away from the excitement of city life. We want you to be able to experience all the local amenities and attractions Cork can offer you as a student.

Whilst living with your new Nido family in Cork, you will have full access to all the amenities on offer – social space, study rooms, gyms and even discount to local restaurants and bars to make your money go that little bit further each month! Our blog keeps you up to date with all the local events (particularly those free of charge!), news, student experiences and guides to your new city.

We talk to students daily, and we completely understand that budgets can be tight while at university. Rest assured, we know our Nido neighbourhoods inside out and to help, we’ve listed a few of your potential living costs whilst living in the city of Cork and don’t forget we have our quick access FAQs section for anything you need to know!
