The Students’ Union keep a fully up-to-date listing of all type of accommodation including apartment complexes, private houses and family digs.

An abundance of close, convenient, well cared-for accommodation within Athlone, makes house-hunting easy for new and current students. Check the Students’ Union list of available accommodation through their website.

Choose from purpose-built student-apartment blocks; a traditional house in the private sector; or a house-share. Maybe you’ll opt for “digs” — living as part of a local family who provide your main meals — to smooth the transition from home-life to full independent living. Families offering digs are also coordinated through the SU.

The Students’ Union has a dedicated Vice-President for Student Welfare and Accommodation who can be contacted at for queries and for help with accommodation queries of a serious nature.
