Students with Disabilities / Additional Needs

Maynooth University welcomes applications from students with disabilities. To ensure that all students have the opportunity to fulfil their academic potential at Maynooth University, we reserve a number of places in campus accommodation for students with disabilities. 
Rooms are limited therefore they are allocated only where the impact of a student’s disability is such that the student’s participation and retention in university would be at risk without living on campus.

Please read the information below for full details on the criteria used and the application process.

You should note the following:

  • If you are considering making an application for campus accommodation due to a disability you should do so as early as possible, preferably in August. While the Disability Office will assess applications for campus accommodation throughout the year, due to demand campus rooms are generally booked up in August each year, 
  • The criteria for allocation of campus accommodation due to a disability is strict and rooms are limited. To increase your chances of getting a room you should apply for campus accommodation via the general campus accommodation booking link (unless you already know you have secured a room via the Disability Office process). The general booking link opens in August – please refer to the webpage above for the exact date and time, follow the instructions and be mindful of strict timelines.
