Providing a unique blend of location, integration, amenities, and service, the Arcadia housing at NUI Galway allows students to experience all of the opportunities available in the town and at the University. We traditionally house all of our NUIG students in off-campus accommodations.

You will reside in an apartment-style flat. The number of students residing in each apartment may vary depending on the style of accommodation. You should expect to share a bedroom and bathroom. Student flats may be co-ed, though your roommate will be of the same gender if in a shared bedroom. The apartments are self-catered and you will find convenient food markets nearby.

  • Each flat has a fully-equipped kitchen and shared living area, with television and modern amenities.
  • Self-service laundry facilities are available within the complex.
  • Gym facilities are not available within the housing complexes; however there is a gym on campus available at an additional cost. Payment is received at the gym.
  • Each complex will vary in distance from campus. You should expect a 15-30 minute walk to campus.
