Booking Information

Academic Year 2022/23

When do applications open?

Applications for accommodation for the academic year 2022/23 at Corrib Village and Goldcrest Village (NUI Galway’s campus residences) open on Tuesday, 8 February 2022 and will remain open until Tuesday, 1 March 2022.

Applications open for three weeks. It does not matter when you apply within the three-week period. For example, applying as soon as applications open does not increase your chance of being offered accommodation.

How to apply

When applications are open, links to two application forms are available here; one for Corrib Village and one for Goldcrest Village.

You can only apply for accommodation at one of the two residences, not both. You can only make one application.

Please select your preferred bedroom type when applying. If you receive an offer, please note that you will be offered any available bedroom types, based on availability at that time. This may or may not include your preferred bedroom type.

There is no fee to apply. A deposit is only payable at time of room offer.

How and when are offers made?

Rooms are offered by a computer-generated random lottery (not on a first-come-first-served basis). All offers are made by email. See below for key dates.

Information for international students

If you are an international student, please contact the NUI Galway International Office before applying.

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 college. Please contact for more information.
