UCC has been named ‘Sundays Times University of the Year’ on 5 occasions, most recently in 2015 and 2016. UCC Campus Accommodation offers exceptional value accommodation close to Cork City.

Our groups have travelled throughout Ireland every summer for over a dozen years. We keep coming back to Cork and to UCC because the lodging and facilities are excellent. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained. The meeting spaces work well for our classes and events. Of all the places we stay in Ireland, UCC Campus Accommodation has the most helpful and friendliest staff. This is a first rate operation! Professor Thomas McHardy – James Madison University.
