For more information on campus/remote working, click here and read the section on Return to Campus Working 

The accelerated Government Roadmap for reopening society gives Monday 20 July as the date when universities will open. Departments and Units must fully comply with the UL Return to Campus Working Protocol prior to returning to work on or before this date. For more information click here

  1. Email Buildings and Estates outlining the purpose of your visit, when you plan to come on campus, what building you need to access and for how long.
  2. Once Buildings and Estates reply to your email approving this visit on a particular date, they will provide you with a letter of authorisation. 
  3. Bring a hard copy or electronic version of this letter of authorisation with you on the day you visit. You may need it at any Garda checkpoints and you will need it for campus security. 

As an essentail worker under the Gov.ie List of essential service providers,

The University does not expect to be in a position to have the detailed arrangements for returning to work safely completed until late June at the earliest. Even then, and with protocols in place, there will be restrictions. Repeat campus visits for staff who need to work on campus should:

  1. Email the Executive member in your area (usually your Dean or divisional head) outlining why you need access, what you are doing and how frequently you will need to come on site. It will be necessary for them to deem the work essential. Interim safety arrangements, compliant with the Return to Work Safely Protocol, must be put into place by the relevant department for essential employees prior to them returning to work.
  2. If your Dean or divisional head approves access, they email Buildings and Estates stating who is coming in, for what purpose and how long/ how often. Buildings and Estates will then provide you with a letter of authorisation. 
  3. Bring a hard copy or electronic version of this letter of authorisation with you on the day you visit. You may need it at any Garda checkpoints and you will need it for campus security.

University of Limerick hosts many visits from students and staff from our partners overseas and in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are advising that any planned visits to the UL campus should be postponed until the campus reopens and is fully operational once again.

University of Limerick will continue to deliver its programmes and courses on offer through online methods of teaching and learning and we are striving towards overcoming the threat of the COVID-19 virus in our community and beyond.

As a prospective undergraduate student, we would encourage you, should you have any queries regarding applying to UL, to browse the Academic Registry / Undergraduate Admissions webpage and contact the relevant section from there. For new applications, we will aim to be as accommodating as possible and we hope that these considerations will help to alleviate any concerns you may have in applying to UL.

For details on the application process to postgraduate taught, postgraduate research and continuing professional education programmes, please refer to the Graduate & Professional Studies website at www.ul.ie/gps. Please note that while the university is closed, there is currently no disruption to the service of processing applications.

Our Critical Incident/Crisis Operations Team at University of Limerick continues to meet regularly to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and prepare our institution and our community.

We hope that you, your family and your community stays safe in these unprecedented times.
