Village Communities at University of Limerick

Your social and residential experience at UL is just as important as your academic studies at our wonderful university. We understand that to make the most of your short time in residence it is important that you take every opportunity to meet and live with others. We do our utmost to integrate international students with other international and Irish students.  As we appreciate that this may be the first time for you to travel from your home country, you can be assured that your Village Manager will be on hand to make the transition from home a smooth experience.

Accommodation Options to Suit You

All seven residential villages at Univerisity of Limerick are self catered with private bedrooms. We provide all cooking facilities and inventory so that all you have to worry about is what you want to cook! Kitchen/living areas are shared with up to 7 others. While some villages offer shared bathrooms our apartment residences offer ensuite facilities for those who wish to have their own toilet/shower. To find out which village suits you best, click here.

Each village has a village management team, happy to help with any queries you may have. We have an open door policy and our team are always available to meet with residents, regardless of the request. Our Village Managers pride themselves on keeping residents happy and aim to solve any problem a resident may have. Our team have many years' experience assisting new students. Whether the problem is homesickness, having a problem with housemates, trying to find a doctor or dentist or simply opening a bank account, you will find that our team have dealt with it on many occasions.

The Village Management Team are supported by Resident Assistants (RA's) whose primary aim is to protect the safety and welfare of our student communities. Our Village Receptions are open from early morning right up to 10.30pm during the week which means that there is always staff on hand to assist or even just for a chat.

We also provide a professional maintenance service who can fix any problem from changing a light bulb to attending to a major plumbing or electrical fault.

Our Security Officers are on call 24 hours a day and regularly patrol each residence. While campus security aim to keep the vIllages safe and secure, each officer assists the Village Management  in maintaining order. The Village Management take antisocial behaviour very seriously and aim to maintain a living environment conducive to study and relaxation.
