Prospective Students

Undergraduate Accommodation at University of Limerick

Kilmurry Living Room 

The University of Limerick offers accommodation to over 2,800 students in seven attractive village residences all within walking distance of lecture theatres and facilities. Living in residence offers you the opportunity to enjoy your time at university to the full and in the heart of it all.

Which Village is for you?

With over 2,800 rooms across seven residential villages at University of Limerick, there is something to suit everyone. Each village has a distinctive character with a wide range of facilities. Our seven villages vary in price too; this means that there is accommodation on campus to suit all budgets. 


Why might my application be unsuccessful?

Priority will be given to applicants who live over 60km from University of Limerick Campus. This does not guarantee that all applicants meeting this criteria will receive a room offer. 

This does not preclude applicants from under 60km applying but as with all unsuccessful applications we strongly advise to secure off Campus accommodation at the earliest point possible


What to expect when living in residences

When you live in any one of our residential villages, you can expect:

• Professional management service whose primary focus is to deliver the best student living experience

• Support during your journey at UL

• Excellent facilities across seven residential villages

• Rental fees with no additional surprises. All bills are included in your rent

• Campus Life Programme run each term which includes sporting, cultural and social events

• Free membership to UL Sports Arena


Irish speaking students

Should you wish to live in a house with other native Irish speakers there is a section to request this on your application online at We do not have accommodation set aside for Irish speaking students, it will be based on a preference to share with other Irish speaking students. We will do our best to allocate native Irish speakers together if they so request.


Who will I live with?

At Campus Life Services, we have an allocation policy which we believe encourages vibrant communities. Our residents can expect to live with students in the same year. You will find that students may be completing different courses to you which creates diversity. Our houses are usually mixed gender with equal balance where possible.


Why live in residence?

When you live in residence at UL you will have  free access to high speed internet via the Eduroam network. You can apply for your own ensuite in our apartment style residences which affords you greater privacy while you still enjoy the camaraderie of sharing with others. 

Having overcome the busy transition of first year, we recognise that as a senior student, one of your priorities will be to live with your friends. When you apply for a room in any of the student villages, you can nominate friends to share with you. Please note we cannot guarantee share requests.
