Providing a unique blend of location, integration, amenities, and service, the Arcadia housing in NUI Galway allows students to experience all of the opportunities available in the city and at the University. We traditionally house all of our NUIG students at either Gort na Coiribe or Corrib Village. As you read the information below on these options, please also review the general Ireland accommodation information.
Gort na Coiribe
You will reside in townhouse style flats or apartment style flats with Irish and other American students. The number of residents may vary from three to eight, depending on the style of accommodation. You will share a room. Sometimes, single bedrooms are available at an additional cost. If interested in a single room, please note this on your housing preference form. Student flats may be co-ed, however any individual roommate will be of the same gender. Gort na Coiribe is self-catered and you will find many the convenient markets nearby.
Corrib Village is self-catered student accommodation (for spring semester students) located just along the River Corrib. It offers newly refurbished flats and is ideal for those who enjoy the convenience of living on-campus. You should expect a 5-minute walk to the heart of the NUIG campus and a 20-25 minute walk to Galway city center. Corrib Village also offers a free shuttle bus service that runs during the day to the city center and back.
