Payment Options

The Academic Year fee is paid in either of the following ways:

  • Full year payment (per ‘total’ column in above table)
  • Two part-payments (as shown in above table)
  • Instalment payments (8 part-payments)**Amounts and due dates are available on the student portal to students that have received an offer.

Please note:

  • Payments must be made online
  • Payments can only be made by debit card or credit card
  • Unfortunately, it is not possible to facilitate bank transfers

Booking Deposit

  • For students paying full year payment or two part payments a €250 deposit is required at offer stage. This becomes a security deposit following check in.
  • For students that choose to pay in 8 instalments, the total deposit due is the equivalent of one instalment. The instalment amount per room type is available on the student portal.

If your accommodation application is successful, this booking deposit is held for the duration of your stay. This deposit is refundable less any deductions for damage or missing items at the end of your stay.

Having accepted an accommodation offer, 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 in the cancellation policy section below).*

*Update September 2021: If you had reserved a room for the academic year 2021/22 and did not receive a CAO offer from NUI Galway, you will be able to apply for a refund of the full deposit amount. An application form will be posted on this website in early October.

Utilities Prepayment

A €375 utilities prepayment must be paid at the same time as your first part-payment (as outlined above).

This is a payment against energy consumption. Every month, a bill is issued, based on metered consumption, and applied on a pro-rata basis against occupants’ prepayments. If the final amount incurred is greater than this amount, the student is liable for the difference. Any surplus will be refunded.

Cancellation Policy

If an applicant wishes to cancel their application at any point after the deposit has been paid, but before going into occupation, they must do so on-line via the student portal by the dates outlined therein. The cancellation date is the same date as the payment due date.

Cancellations by telephone will NOT be accepted.

Where the above policy has been adhered to a €100 administration fee will be deducted from the booking deposit and the remainder €150 will be refunded.** Where cancellations are received after the cut-off point outlined above, the booking will have automatically been released but no refund will be issued.

**Update September 2021: If you had reserved a room for the academic year 2021/22 and did not receive a CAO offer from NUI Galway, you will be able to apply for a refund of the full deposit amount. An application form will be posted on this website in early October.
