New Students


Campus Accommodation for incoming CAO Students opened on Wednesday 1st May 2019 at 14.00 for pre-booking and is now fully booked. This was a first come first served online booking process and students were asked to pay €500 on a bank card online. We cannot accept email, paper, personal callers, telephone or any form of  booking as they cannot be considered or processed. Rooms booked on 1st May will hold until Round 1 of the CAO offers in mid August. Any rooms booked in May which do not have a matching Round 1 CAO offer in August will be automatically cancelled and listed for a full refund. Refunds will be completed in early October 2019.

Rooms cancelled after round 1 CAO will  be offered for booking on Wednesday 21st August 2019 on the same process as in May.  

We do not keep a waiting list. Any cancellations that arise after the first two booking days will be re-offered on Tuesday 3rd September 2019. This is the final booking day for CAO First Years for the academic year 2019-2020.  Any further vacancies will be offered on the website as they arise.
