The Accommodation Service at University of Limerick is managed by Campus Life Services. The office is located at the Student Centre at the University of Limerick. The office provides assistance to students who require help and advice when looking for accommodation off-campus. 

It is strongly recommended that off campus accommodation is inspected by students with particular regard for suitability and safety before committing to a contract or lease agreeement. The university does not accept liability for accommodation  advertised on the off campus database. Please see our Off Campus Advice leaflet for more information.

 

Types of Accommodation

 

Off-Campus Apartment Complex's

There are a number of apartment complex developments located in the Castletroy area where accommodation is offered to students attending third level colleges in the area. Each complex has its own website and is located within 20 minutes' walk from the main entrance of UL. Properties are managed by private management companies and rental fees are normally paid in advance of each semester. Students interested in living in an apartment complex off campus should contact the operators directly.

Off campus student villages within walking distance to the University include: 

Brookfield Hall

Courtyard Student Village

Parkview Hall

Groody Student Village

Note: It is important to note that the University of Limerick does not have any affiliations/accreditations with any particular apartment complex off campus.

 Private Housing

Housing off campus is found in housing estates located near to the university campus. Popular estates include:

  • College Court
  • Millford Grange
  • Oaklawns
  • The Orchards
  • Briarfield
  • Curragh Birin
  • Elm Park

In most cases, these properties are privately owned and the student deals directly with the landlord. Usually students are required to sign a lease agreement for an academic year and are required to pay rental fees monthly. Students living in off campus accommodation are responsible for associated bills which are shared with other housemates. When planning to live off-campus, students should budget for:

  • Electricity
  • Heating oil (if applicable)
  • Weekly refuse collection
  • Bedding
  • Inventory
  • Cable TV or basic TV connection
  • TV Licence

When booking self-catering accommodation students can expect to pay a booking deposit equivalent to one month's rent. In addition, students can expect to pay an electricity bond of €150 per house and a refuse collection charge of approximately €250 per house per year in advance. These estimations will vary.
