Applications for the Academic Year 2021/22


Applications for accommodation for the academic year 2021/22 at Corrib Village and Goldcrest Village (NUI Galway’s campus residences) open on Tuesday, 23 February 2021 and will remain open until Tuesday, 16 March 2021.

Applications open for 3 weeks. After this, rooms are offered by a computer-generated random lottery (not on a first-come-first-served basis).

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.


When applications are open, links to two online 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.

There is no fee to apply. A deposit is only payable once you accept an offer of a room. All room offers are made by email.
