Undergraduate Accommodation at University of Limerick

Kilmurry Living Room 

The University of Limerick offers on-campus accommodation to over 2,700 students in six 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.

Why live in residence?

When you live in residence at UL you will have your own private study bedroom equipped with a good size study desk and free access to high speed internet via the UL wireless network. You can have 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.
