Campus Accommodation University of Limerick
Welcome
Dear Student
Welcome to Campus Life Services at the University of Limerick. We hope that you will make the most of
your time in residence. Our aim is to provide a comfortable home on arrival and to ensure your stay in
the village is a memorable one for you and an important part of your university experience.
In providing a pleasant and secure living environment, we can only succeed with your help. We ask
you to respect your home and maintain your room in good condition. We also ask for behaviour that
respects sharing with others and that the environment is one of study as well as relaxation.
We suggest that you take advantage of living in a diverse residential community specifically designed
for you. As well as your housemates, you have the opportunity to meet others at the events organised
as part of the Campus Life Programme, get involved with your new community and attend various
events in our Campus Life Programme in residence. You may like to join one of the many clubs and
societies or take up a new sport or pursue an existing one. This is the one time in your life that you
have the opportunity to do so many things which will help you to develop yourself and your interests
for the future. We want you to get the best out of campus life and to enjoy being part of a community
where you can make lifelong friendships with others from all over the world.
Enjoy your time with us and feel free to give us suggestions on anything that we could do to improve
living in residence.
Best wishes for a great year on campus.

With Village Managers resident on site, 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 ASSISTANTS
Resident Assistant’s (RA’s)
In addition to the Village Manager living on site, 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 AND CAPPAVILLA
VILLAGES
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 24 . 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.
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.
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

a high standard of cleanliness. To help students in this task, a vacuum cleaner, sweeping brush,

cleaners will be instructed to provide a once off cleaning service. The relevant students will

and kitchen.

only be used as a booster. There is a boost button for the gas heating in Kilmurry Village and

his or her fair share. Should an individual room / living area fall below an acceptable standard
of cleanliness, contract cleaners are instructed to clean the room(s) and the student(s) are billed
