The University aim is to deliver an enhanced student life experience which complements an excellent educational programme in a dynamic, rapidly growing campus environment. 

Campus planning considers solutions that respond to a range of changing student needs. The Maynooth University campus currently has capacity for 1,170 students to live on campus. The University Strategic Plan 2018-2022 establishes the clear objective to develop an additional 1,000 bed student residence on campus over the coming decade. 

The increased access to dedicated student residence capacity will also support a reduced dependency on cars travelling to the campus, in line with University sustainable commuting initiatives.
