I was an incoming first year student to the University of Limerick in 2014/2015. I didn’t know anybody else studying here but thanks to Courtyard student village I found it very easy to settle in. I was housed with other first year students who were also studying physiotherapy. This made the integration to college life much easier accompanied with having a secure location to live in. Having visited other student accommodation throughout my stay, there is no comparison to the spacious and comfortable living provided in the courtyard student village. We were provided with much more than a room, rather it was a home away from home scenario with the layout of the 4 bedroom houses.
