The role of Campus Life Services is to develop and manage student residences on a self-funding basis. Each residences is situated in a lovely location while some villages developed in recent years offer captivating views of the river Shannon and surrounding countryside. The villages are a very popular choice with students as they provide them with a safe attractive living environment with all the added benefits of built-in services.

During the summer vacation the facilities of the university including the student residences are used for residential conference and event activity. UL Conference and Sports Campus is a brand name used to market and promote these facilities and services.

The self funding model used to develop the residences also creates the opportunity to develop a range of social and communal facilities on the campus. Whilst these facilities enhance the student experience they also help to create a really pleasant working/living type environment for faculty and staff.  The development of shops, retail units, restaurants and social amenities on the campus has forged the creation of a University town.
