RCSI Bahrain Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

Acommodation

RCSI has a 20-apartment building within a three minute walk from the campus and gym. Each of the 20 apartments is made up of two bedrooms – one of which is ensuite – a separate bathroom and a large, shared, open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge area. A member of RCSI staff is appointed as house master of the residence and has a degree of pastoral responsibility for students. They will also handle disciplinary matters, compliance with health and safety regulations and the operations of cleaning and security staff, among other things.

While many students have successfully arranged accommodation from abroad, many others wait until they arrive, but you can be safe in the knowledge that accommodation is in plentiful supply. A list of details and contacts for external apartment blocks in the local area is available through the Student Services Office.
