Your rent pays for your accommodation which is your bedroom and bathroom (where there is an en-suite) and all common areas including shared bathrooms, kitchens and halls within your designated apartment for 7 days per week for 38 weeks (each semester is 19 weeks long). Your rent/utilities also pays for the services that are provided to on-campus residents such as Apartments Reception Service, and Post Service (parcels are separate).
Rent is payable in two 50% installments each year and prior to the start of each Semester. The two dates on which your rent is due will be advised to you in your letter of room offer (by email). In general, Continuing Students are usually asked to pay their first rent installment by 31 July each year and First Years and International Students are usually asked to pay their first installment by end of August each year - however this may change from year to year. The second installment is due at the the same time for all students and is usually due in mid January. You will be given a Campus Accommodation Account with a Username and Password so that you can pay on-line, view your account throughout the year, check on payment due amouts and dates and print off receipts. Your Licence to Reside is also found using this portal.

The most convenient and safe way to pay is online via your secure accommodation account. The log-in details will be sent to your email address when you book a room. When booking you will need a bank card (debit/credit) to pay your booking fee. You can check your Accommodation Account online at any time to see what payments are made and which are due. Most bank cards are accepted including Visa & Mastercard. However, if your bank card has transactions limits or other restrictions you may find that the amount cannot be paid in one transaction. You need to check this with your bank. If, due to bank card restrictions, you need to pay rent over a number of transactions our payment system will allow you to amend the amount to pay. Please ensure that all payments are made in full before the due date.
Rent is payable in two instalments. 2017/2018 rental rates are available here and the rates applicable to your specific room type are on your Accommodation Account. The rent for the 2nd Semester is due for payment by 15 January 2018. Our process does not allow for payments being made in arrears or in monthly installments unless the payments are being made in advance of either of the two key due dates; the first in the Summer and for semester 2 in January annually.

This is re-fundable in the event that no CAO offer is made in Round 1.
All other students will pay a non-refundable €400 booking fee at time of booking which doubles as the utility charge for the year.
For Academic Year 2017-2018 - Utilities have been harmonised across all rooms to €400 per annum. This will be paid as a booking fee initially and is non-refundable unless the student does not have an academic place for the academic year in question. Once you move into the room the booking fee is non-refundable and is used to pay your utility bills for the year.
Refunds to CAO students who book in May in anticipation of coming to Maynooth, but who do not received an academic place offering will be made during the first week of October directly to the bank card used to make the payment in the first instance. There is no need to apply for this refund as we will have the CAO information available to us in October when refunds are being made.
Refunds to Current Students who have failed exams or for whatever reason are not returning to university will be considered on application by the student to the firstname.lastname@example.org at which time evidence from your academic department or academic advisory will be required.
