Booking Information

Academic Year 2023/24

Applications for accommodation for the academic year 2023/24 at Corrib Village, Goldcrest Village and Dunlin Village (University of Galway’s campus residences) open on Monday, 20 February 2023 and will remain open until Friday, 10 March 2023.

Applications open online for three weeks. You can make an application at any stage within the three-week period. We do not operate on a first-come, first-served basis. So, applying as soon as applications open does not increase your chance of being offered accommodation.

How to apply

Before applying, take a look at the descriptions and rates for each of the residences and decide whether you would like to apply for Corrib Village, Goldcrest Village or Dunlin Village. You can only apply for accommodation at one of the three residences.

All applications must be made online. Application forms are available here when applications are open. There is an application form for each of the three residences; one for Corrib Village, one for Goldcrest Village and one for Dunlin Village. You will need to select your preferred bedroom type when applying so please consider this in advance.

There is no fee to make an application. A deposit is required to secure a reservation if you are offered a room once applications close.

Incoming first year students will need to submit their CAO number as part of the application process. Campus residences are only available to students of University of Galway.

Information for international students

Information for students with a disability

A limited number of places are available for campus accommodation due to impact of disability. These places can only be recommended for students whose attendance would be adversely affected, due to the impact of their disability, if they lived off campus.

Priority consideration is given to students who need to live in accessible accommodation e.g. a wheelchair user, or where a student with a visual impairment would find it very difficult to travel to university. Please contact disabilityservice@universityofgalway.ie for more information.
