much better to rent elsewhere as you will get nicer and more fair landlords. student villages is only good if you want to fail exams and its your first time away from home and all you want to do is party.
i spent a year in one and they promise more than they give. 3nights a week i wouldnt get to sleep till 5am.

just checked and leaving results are out 15august so if your a mature student and already know you got your course then my advise is to start looking now.
might be hard during race week but the later you leave it the less houses there is.

Ah I remember queing in the Sq on a rainy Wednesday afternoon with a few hundred other souls for the accomadation list

No daft.ie back then I tell ya!

Gleann Rua in Renmore has lots of rental proporties and some lovely houses.
The estate between GMIT and Flannerys is nice too, I forget the name

There are two close options for you

The student village across the road is convienant but run by sharks, you can kiss your deposit goodbye and they'll plunder it even if you were the perfect tenant

However, if you want to go with a student village Cuirt Na Rasai up in Ballybrit is nice, I stayed there a year
It's a bit further away, handy cycle, or steady 20 minute walk
Lovely flats and shops close by
Used to walk through Castlepark every night and no bother, the place has a reputation it doesn't deserve.

Have accepted my place already so may aswell get cracking sorting out accomodation!staying well away from student villages, house share with professionals or other mature students would be ideal!!
Do you reckon its possible to arrange accomodation now with landlords for september, just presuming most would want to fill any vacant rooms immediately?

Apologies for the novicey questions & appreciate the tips

Hey, Moving to Galway in September to start in GMIT. Looking for accommodation at the moment but am gearing more towards a house share rather than student accommodation as I'm 23 and there isn't much in the line of student accommodation that has interested me so far. Would like to get reasonably priced accommodation as close to college as possible but don't have a group to share with so if anyone is looking for flatmates pm me if interested.

Single room available!

Hey my friend (Female) has a single room available near GMIT (5 minute walk) available if anyone is interested. It is €65 a week and this includes internet and bins. Its oil heated and has been newly insulated so shouldn't take too much! There are currently 3 girls in the house.

PM me if interested or you have any questions!
