The Accommodation Office (located in the Student Centre) is open Monday to Friday, 09h00 - 17h00 (closed 13h00-14h00).
There is a wide variety of accommodation in Castletroy, a residential area within walking distance of the University campus. A list of suitable off-campus housing is available from the Accommodation Office.
Options include private student residences such as Parkview. It is advisable to reserve these residences in advance of your arrival.
Private housing is also available to rent. It is inadvisable to book this type of accommodation without first viewing it. If you intend booking private housing, you need to arrive in Limerick before the semester starts so that you have time to view a number of houses. Students doing this should book into temporary accommodation for at least three days.
A full list of private accommodation is available from the Accommodation Office or from the International Education Office. You can also check the local newspapers – the Limerick Leader and the Limerick Post – for housing advertisements. There are also a number of accommodation rental websites that you can consult, such as daft.ie or myhome.ie.
N.B. Please beware of fraudulent persons purporting to be landlords/landladies on Facebook, Internet sites or other media. Do not pay money to persons for accommodation, unless you are absolutely sure that they are genuine.
Please note that early booking is essential to secure your accommodation – whether on or off campus!
