The academic year fee is paid in two part-payments (as shown in above table). The first part-payment is due on or before Thursday, 21st August 2014 (within three days of first-round CAO offers). The second part-payment is due on or before Friday, 5th December 2014.
Alternatively, the academic year fee can be paid once off, on or before Thursday, 21st August 2014, in order to avail of a 2% saving. Please contact the office to discuss alternative payment methods.
A €250 booking deposit must be paid at the time of application. If your application to Corrib Village is successful, this booking deposit is refundable less any deductions for damage or missing items. If your application to Corrib Village is unsuccessful (e.g. there are no spaces left), this booking deposit is fully refundable.
If your application to NUI Galway is unsuccessful (or you choose not to attend NUI Galway), this booking deposit will be returned less an administration fee of €100, provided that our cancellation policy has been abided by (details can be found below).
Utilities and Electricity Payment
A €600 utilities and electricity payment must be paid at the same time as your first part-payment (or with your once-off payment if you choose this option). It is comprised of the following:
- Electricity: €375 deposit payment against energy cost per resident. If the final amount incurred is greater than this amount, the student is liable for the difference. Any surplus will be refunded.
- Utilities: €225 non-refundable payment to include utilities, cable TV, incoming phone line, waste collection etc.
Please note that each room will only be licensed for the full academic year. Students are liable for this period even if they do not stay for all of it.
If the licensee wishes to cancel or is unsuccessful in their application to NUI Galway, the licensee must cancel in writing within three days of the first-round CAO offers i.e. by 5:00pm on Thursday, 21st August 2014. Cancellations by telephone will not be accepted; they must be made by email, post, or fax.
In the event of following the above cancellation procedure, €100 administration fee will be deducted from the application fee and the remainder refunded. Refunds will be issued by bank transfer. If the applicant cancels after the cut-off point outlined above, no refund will be issued. If the applicant cancels after having paid the moiety, the onus will be on the licensee to find a replacement applicant. Atalia Student Residences Ltd. has no obligation to find an alternative licensee. Failure to do so will result in the applicant losing all monies paid.
Eviction or Early Departure
If a student is evicted, no refunds of rental will be made.
In the case of early departure, the onus is on the student to find someone to take their room. Until a replacement has been found, the student will not be refunded. Please note that when a student leaves, Corrib Village management have the right to move another resident into that student’s vacant room. If this occurs, however, the student must still find a replacement for the room which is vacant.
