Making payments couldn’t be easier! Once your room has been allocated you will be able to pay via your account on our website. You will be able to see when all of your payments are due, as well as any other relevant dates on your accounts page. We do ask that payments are made on time.
You can pay in four equal installments of 25%, the first in August/September before you move in, the second in November, the third in January and the final one in February. Alternatively, you can pay in full in August.
If your friends are also booking at Hatch, you can make a sharing request during the booking process and we will do what we can to facilitate you.
We understand that living with new people can be tough, especially if it’s your first time away from home. Most of the time students staying at Hatch make lasting friendships with their flatmates but if you are having difficulties settling in, please let us know.
MOVING IN / ARRIVAL
Your apartment and bedroom will be fully furnished. All you need, other than your own belongings, is a duvet and bed linens.
There is street parking beside Hatch with pay and display.
You will be welcomed by an on-site receptionist who will give you a tour of the facilities and provide you with your access card. This card gives you access to the building, your apartment, the laundry room and gym facilities. In Steelworks you will also be given a key for your bedroom door.
If you can’t check in during our regular reception hours, just let us know and we can arrange a time that suits.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
Using state of the art access control and CCTV systems, we do everything possible to ensure that Hatch is safe and secure. The building and outdoor areas are well lit and the building is only accessible with an access card but if you experience any issues beyond our reception hours, please call our 24/7 security number.
Of course! We have bike racks in front of the building, in the courtyard as well as a secure basement storage facility.
We love planning events for our students at Hatch, especially at the beginning of the year to make sure that everyone settles in and you get to know their neighbours. In recent years we have held pizza nights, table quizzes and Christmas parties. This year we introduced Breakfast mornings and gaming nights. Check out our gallery for pictures!
Unfortunately at the moment, for the safety of residents and staff, no guests or visitors are permitted at HATCH.
Yes, if you have any maintenance requests simply log them through our portal and our maintenance team will respond as quickly as they can.
Unfortunately we don’t accommodate pets at Hatch, you’ll have to leave them at home.
Each apartment has its own post box so you will be able to retrieve any letters there. If you are receiving a package, our receptionist can sign for it and email you to let you know it has arrived and will be stored in the office until you collect it. If a package arrives outside of reception hours, you will have to arrange to meet the delivery man or collect it from the post office, which isn’t far away.
The address is Hatch Student Accommodation, 9/10 Copley Street, Cork City, Ireland.
Previous Hatch tenants have told us that internet is far more important to them for studying and streaming movies so instead we provide superfast broadband. You may bring your own TV to your apartment but you are solely responsible for the TV license.
We have a contract to suit everyone. You can book for the entire academic year, which is 42 weeks, from the end of August to the start of June. If your college course continues through the summer, you can choose the 51-week option. Or, if you are studying in Cork for one semester, you can choose to stay with us for either the first or second semester.
Of course, you can stay in your apartment anytime within your tenancy dates.
We will hate to see you go, but if you decide to leave Hatch during your tenancy you will have to sign a cancellation form. You will be liable for the remaining fees until someone re-rents your room.
IF MY COLLEGE COURSE FINISHES BEFORE THE END OF TENANCY, AND I MOVE OUT EARLY, WILL I BE REFUNDED FOR THOSE WEEKS?
Unfortunately no, you won’t be refunded. Everyone finishes college at different times so we cannot change the dates on the contract.
