The Quiet Zone
Feedback from residents indicates that there is a demand for rooms which are designated as “quiet”. We have made available a number of rooms to current students and Postgraduate students, which can be booked in advance on a first come first served basis or applied for via the Postgraduate Booking form available during August annually. These rooms are geared towards students who wish to live in a quiet, study focused, low alcohol environment. Students will also be expected to keep a clean well organised apartment which will be facilitated by like minded roommates.
The Accommodation Office will make every effort to support and protect the ethos of The Quiet Zone. Breaches of the ethos will be monitored by the Quiet Zone residents,Security Officer on Duty out of hours and the Residence Office aided by the Residences Behaviour Committee. The rooms available within this Zone are Courtyard Single Ensuite (Birch in the New Courtyard tower building) and one other location where there are single rooms with shared bathroom facilities (Rye or Village).
Room Rates for Courtyard/Rye/Village rooms apply respectively.
The Quiet Zone is for Current Students, Post Grads and International Students. Undergraduates in their first year at Maynooth may not apply.
- You will be a full time registered student for the relevant academic year in your second or subsequent year of your course (UG or PG)

Any breaches of the ethos or the Licence to Reside will render you ineligible.
- Students coming to The Quiet Zone are required to do an online orientation (as part of the Expression of Interest) which is aimed at explaining the ethos of the Quiet Zone and gaining the agreement from residents to abide by the ethos.
Expressions of Interest for Quiet Zone
Fill an expression of interest and orientiation form. NOW COMPLETED FOR 2020-2021.
Students who have lived, with no breaches, in The Quiet Zone previously and who have completed the expression of interest and orientation form were invited to re-book rooms on 10 March 2020.
Any rooms not re-booked will be opened for booking on TO BE CONFIRMED (POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE) to new to Quiet Zone students (who have completed the expression of interest and orientation form). This will be an online process on a first come first served basis.
To book a room in The Quiet Zone we operate a process of online Expressions of Interest opened for a limited period in Spring each year.
No email, paper or drop in applications can be processed or accepted.
Students who lived in the Quiet Zone previously and who abided by the ethos of the Zone and who express an interest again will be given priority access to book a room provided there are sufficient rooms available and students have maintained their clean behaviour record. If we receive more interest than rooms available the priority students will be offered an online first come first served booking process. If at that time we still have rooms available those who are eligible and who have expressed an interest for the first time will be offered the remaining rooms in an online first come first served booking.
