ISA Housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Limerick lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor of Ireland. All ISA Housing options are within walking distance to the University of Limerick.
The experience of living in another culture will be both educational and rewarding so long as you stay open-minded and reasonable. There are differences in culture and lifestyle between life in Ireland and the U.S. that will quickly become apparent upon your arrival. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility!
Students at University of Limerick will be placed in dorms on-campus that are located about a 5-15 minute walk to the center of campus. ISA does not have control over which dorm is assiged to you by the university. Dorms are apartment-style dorms, typically housing 6-8 students in each apartment. Semester and academic-year students live with both international students and local students from Ireland, while summer students live with international students only. Dorms include a single-occupancy room, shared or en-suite bathrooms, shared kitchen, and shared living room. Bed linens are not included for semester and academic-year students, but are included for summer students. Free, unlimited internet access is available in each bedroom, and laundry facilities are available in dorm.
A $500 refundable security deposit will be charged to students living in ISA arranged housing. ISA may retain some, or all, of this deposit in the case of damage to property, or if utility usage exceeds the allotted monthly amount.
You may opt to secure housing independently. If you select this option, you will receive a discount equal to the housing portion of the program price. By choosing to opt out of ISA housing, you are solely responsible for researching, reserving, and paying for all fees, deposits, and paying rent directly to the housing facility you choose.
