Live on Campus and enjoy the Best of Campus Life

The University of Limerick has 6 purpose built village-style residences on the campus which offer high quality accommodation for an all-inclusive fee. There are no extra bills to worry about. All villages on campus are professionally managed with a residential manager on site and a full maintenance team on hand.

Living on campus is one of the best ways to enjoy university life. You are close to all activities, from lectures to sport, to social life. You make great friends who last a lifetime. Each student has his/ her own room ensuite in attractive six bedroom modern apartments or sharing bathroom facilities in cosy 8 / 6 / 4 bedroom terraced houses. The locations are excellent, close to all amenities. Most villages have a communal centre where a programme of activity is organised for students throughout the year which include arts events, dance, music, information evenings, games tournaments and social evenings. These can also be used for group study and student organised events.

Campus Life Services: Campus residences are professionally managed by Campus Life Services. While we have a code of conduct which must be followed, we aim to ensure that students enjoy living on campus and that we offer a home from home especially for the new student moving to university

Our residential managers are on site to help students as well as to manage facilities. Campus residences offer a great opportunity to meet new friends from all over the world. They also offer an excellent study environment providing adequate privacy in well-designed single study bedrooms with high speed internet included.

1st years: On campus accommodation is a very good option for 1st years. An allocation of rooms is held for incoming first year students and are available online from January. ’Please view www.studentliving.ul.iefor more information

Kilmurry Village: Located close to all the sports facilities, Kilmurry Village is the place to live if you enjoy an early morning swim or jog or if you are a keen sports person.
