Making the best decision for your university student living experience

This is an exciting time in your life and we understand that finding the right place to live during your studies is extremely important to you.

Which Village is for you?
With 2,700 rooms across six residential villages at University of Limerick, there is something to suit everyone. Each village has a distinctive character with a wide range of facilities suitable for first year students. Our six villages vary in price too; this means that there is accommodation on campus to suit all budgets.
If you want to live as part of a vibrant student community, minutes’ walk from lecture theatres, then campus accommodation at University of Limerick is a must for you.

When you live in any one of our six residential villages, you can expect:
Professional management service whose primary focus is to deliver the best student living experience

How early can I apply for accommodation?
Prospective first year students planning to study at University of Limerick can apply online from February (pre September of year of study). When you apply online, you will be required to pay a non-refundable booking fee. We do not guarantee that we will be able to offer all applicants a room on campus. Please check the website home page for more updates.
Can I apply for a room in a particular village?
When applying you can select villages in order of preference. Due to the high level of applications we cannot guarantee that you will get your 1st preference but we endeavour to allocate students based on preferences. This process is subject to change.
How do I accept or reject my room offer?
If you are successful in securing a room during the booking process you will receive a room offer by email in August. The email will include instructions on how to accept or reject the room offer.

Who will I live with?
