Each village offers an ideal home for any student and provides an attractive living environment,
which enhances both your social and academic development.
The Village Management team aims to provide you with an excellent service and to ensure that your
time with us is an enjoyable experience.
Residential life may not always be easy. It can be difficult to adjust to life away from home, to sharing a
house / apartment with strangers to coping with the demands of student life. The Village Manager is
available for help and advice if you need it, even if you have a problem which is not related to living in
residence, the door is always open and the Village Manager will discuss the matter in private and with
discretion.

RESIDENT ASSISTANT’S (RA’S)
Two Resident Assistant’s (RA’s) live in each Village.
The RA is a post graduate student at University of Limerick and is available for advice and assistance
during your term. The RA operates the mid week evening reception service and is on call most nights
so to respond to emergencies and disturbances that may arise.
The RA assists the Village Manager in fostering a good living environment with special regard for
student welfare, discipline and safety.
A list of RA’s will be available upon arrival together with details of how they can be contacted and
when they are available. Your RA is here to help, no matter what the problem might be.

CODE OF CONDUCT
FOR PLASSEY, KILMURRY, DROMROE, THOMOND, TROY, CAPPAVILLA VILLAGES
AND THE QUIGLEY RESIDENCE
We ask each student in residence to read this carefully as He / She is legally bound by the terms
hereof under the provisions of the student lease / license.
1.
General: It is the objective of Campus Life Services to develop a vibrant community spirit in
each village which supports both the social and academic life of all its residents. To achieve this
objective, all who reside or visit the villages should respect the facilities, the rights of the Village
communities and the rights of those adjacent to the Villages. It is intended that each house /
apartment will be self-regulating and will promote a positive community spirit.
2.
Discipline: The Village Managers with the support of Resident Assistants (RA’s), have
responsibility for discipline in all Villages. Any breach of the code of conduct in the Villages or
their precincts whether by a resident or non-resident student will be dealt with by the Village
Managers. Depending on the gravity of the offence the Village Managers may at their discretion
give a warning. Failure to respond will result in the matter being referred to the disciplinary
committee of Campus Life Services for further action. Please refer to our Disciplinary Process
in Appendix 1 on page 25. This referral could result in either suspension or expulsion from
the Villages. The Residents should not use or permit the premises to be used otherwise than
for residential purposes. All disciplinary matters are referred to the University Advocate who
is responsible for investigating and prosecuting complaints about alleged violations of the
University Code of Conduct.
3.
Noise: Residents and their guests are required to respect the study environment being
promoted in the Villages by avoiding excessive noise, particularly after 22h00 when this may be a
source of annoyance and disturbance to others. The consumption of alcohol must not give rise to
excessive noise or unacceptable behaviour in the Villages at any time. Consideration of others and
moderation is requested when playing musical instruments, stereo/hi-fi systems and
televisions. Noise is considered a nuisance when sound can be clearly heard outside the room.
4.
Entertaining Visitors: Visitors are permitted in all Villages. Visitors are expected to leave private
rooms and common areas by 22h00. Visitors are not permitted to stay overnight without
prior approval of the Village Manager. Students are requested to respect the privacy of others
by not inviting visitors continually to the house. Disciplinary offences by visitors will result in
either their temporary or permanent suspension from the villages. Any damage caused by
visiting guests will be incurred by the village resident.
5.
The Village Management may decide at certain times during the academic year that
residents only are permitted in the village.
6.
House / Apartment planned events: In order to ensure that events held in campus
accommodation are safe, responsible and enjoyable, it is necessary that an Event Request Form
is completed by residents at least two days in advance of the planned event. The event must be
approved by the Village Management. In doing so, both the Village Management and Campus
Security are aware that an event is taking place and can assist so that the event can be held in a
safe and responsible manner.
Event Request Forms will be available from the Village Reception. Unauthorised events held
without permission are a breach of code of conduct and the relevant disciplinary procedures will
apply.
22
21
19
7.
Absence: A student who wishes to absent him / herself from the Villages for any length of time
should in his / her own interest of safety inform the Village Manager and leave an address at
which he / she can be contacted in case of emergency
8.
Transfer of Room: The student is expected to occupy the room assigned at registration during
the full period of stay in residence. Transfer may only be arranged at the discretion of the Village
Manager and is rarely possibly due to high occupancy and will incur a charge of €30.
9.
Cleaning: Students are expected to maintain their individual rooms and common areas to
a high standard of cleanliness. To help students in this task, a vacuum cleaner, sweeping brush,
bucket and mop are provided. Cleaning materials are to be provided by students themselves.
Should an individual room or house fall below an acceptable standard of cleanliness, contract
cleaners will be instructed to provide a once off cleaning service. The relevant students will be
billed for the cost of this service. All bedrooms and common facilities will be inspected on a
regular basis. Prior notice will be given of inspection times. However, if a member of management
and staff find that an individual room or living area fall below an acceptable standard during
essential maintenance works / cleaning, action as above will be taken. (See Schedule of charges)
All residents are expected to have common areas of the Apartment clean and tidy for the arrival
of any new residents during the year. Advance notice where possible will be given to existing
residents of new arrivals.
10. Removal of Refuse: Students shall be expected to remove all refuse from study / bedroom
and communal areas on a regular basis to the refuse areas in the Villages. The student, with
the other residents, shall be responsible for ensuring that the entrance to the house / apartment
and the area immediately adjacent to the house does not become obstructed or used for the
depositing of waste or other material. Disposing of waste other than the facilities provided, e.g.
through windows, is strictly prohibited as it poses a health hazard and attracts rodents.
Communal stairwells and elevators in apartment blocks must be kept clean. Refuse / personal
belongings / washing are not permitted to be stored on balconies in Dromroe, Thomond
and Cappavilla villages. Recycling: We operate a policy of recycling in the villages and
students are requested to comply with this.
11. Drugs: Drugs are a serious matter and will be treated as such by Campus Life Services. Illegal
substances are not permitted in the Villages under any circumstances. If a student is found to be
using / buying selling or in possession of any drugs whether in the houses / apartments or in the
Village area, it will result in automatic expulsion from the Village. The Village Managers, in
co-operation with the Garda Siochana, keep a close watch on all houses / apartments during the year.
12. Vandalism: The cost of any damage in a house/apartment caused by vandalism will be
levied on the person / persons responsible. In the case where those responsible cannot be
identified, the Village Management reserve the right to impose a community levy to all
residents, this includes damage to public areas. Students responsible for vandalism are liable to
disciplinary action. (See Schedule of charges) Residents are prohibited from throwing any object
from windows and are prohibited from entering or exiting accommodation by way of a window.
13. Fixtures & Fittings: Removal of Furniture and any other fixtures for outside use is strictly
prohibited.
