It is student living with a view – and prices to match.

A penthouse room with mountain views, in Dublin’s most expensive student complex, will set the occupant back €15,045 next year – and they are booked out for September.

Other rooms come cheaper, but prospective tenants can expect to pay a minimum of €7,650 to stay at the Ziggurat Montrose, across the road from UCD.

Manager Georgina Wade said about 60pc of their 205 bedrooms were already reserved for September. About 25pc of bookings are for

first-year undergraduates.

Weekly rates at the former Montrose Hotel start at €150, to share a twin room, and tenants are tied in to a 51-week contract.  

The Montrose is mainly configured as cluster flats of six to eight rooms, with shared kitchens – a weekly kitchen cleaning service is thrown in – and living areas.   

The two-bedroomed (€295 per room per week) penthouse, and the €275-a-week (€14,025 per year) “superior rooms” are booked out for September.

Others are available at €245 a week (€12,495) or €265 a week (€13,515), with twin rooms at €300 per room per week.

Ziggurat is opening accommodation in Cork this autumn.
