Housing

Like many European universities, NUIG does not provide housing directly on-campus. This gives students an opportunity to live among Irish students during their semester abroad. Students will be placed with other study abroad students in 4-person flats at Niland House, which is a beautiful 10-minute walk from NUIG'S campus. All apartments have fully equipped kitchens, and students must be prepared to cook for themselves during their semester in Galway. The flats are also fully furnished with furniture, beds, and linens. Students must only pack clothing and personal items to make their living experience complete .
