Accommodation

For the majority of students, going to College is their first time living away from home and the range of options can seem overwhelming, especially when you are not familiar with Limerick or Thurles. Mary Immaculate College runs three accommodation outlets on, or adjacent to, its campuses (two in Limerick and one in Thurles). The MIC Accommodation Office can also provide lists of private landlords and offer assistance to students who require help and advice when looking for accommodation for the duration of their time at MIC.
