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. In each of our six villages, our management team take care to allocate rooms so that you will live with Irish students as well as others from around the world. 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 six residential villages at Univerisity of Limerick are self catered. We provide all cooking facilities and inventory so that all you have to worry about is what you want to cook! While kitchen/living areas are shared with a maximum of 7 others, all study bedrooms are private. This allows for greater privacy while you can still enjoy the camaraderie of others. While some villages offer shared bathrooms (maximum 6 sharing) our apartment residences offer ensuite facilities for those who wish to have their own toilet/shower.
