Waitlist for On-Campus Residences at NUI Galway

NUI Galway’s On-Campus Residences (Corrib Village and Goldcrest) are now fully booked for September 2022.  All students who submitted applications were emailed with a Status Update on March 30th (except for students who submitted applications separately through the Disability Office, Scéim Cónaitheachta Gaeilge etc, as their applications are currently being processed by the relevant offices).

All students that applied for campus residences but didn’t receive an offer will remain on the waitlist. Some cancellations are expected once CAO offers are published, and any available rooms will be offered to waitlisted applicants at that stage

The waitlist will re-open again on the Campus Accommodation website next week and will remain open throughout the summer for anyone that missed the initial application window. Students that received an accommodation offer in March but didn’t secure it at the time are also welcome to reapply when the waitlist re-opens.

A reminder also that students can only apply for one of the two villages: Corrib Village or Goldcrest Village. NUI Galway’s Accommodation Office also provides information on other accommodation options.
