This Lasallian International Program is offered through La Salle University.

Situated on 260 acres, National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) has the look and feel of a historic European university with modern touches tastefully incorporated within it. NUIG is located on the banks of the River Corrib, close to the City of Galway. The largest and most important city in the west of Ireland for nearly 1,000 years, Galway has a population of 65,000. A cosmopolitan city with a thriving cultural and commercial community, Galway has earned its title, "Cultural Capital of Ireland," because of its dynamic theater, arts, and culture scene. Students seeking an experience in a quintessential European university town need to look no further than NUIG.

Housing

Like many European universities, NUIG does not provide housing directly on-campus. This gives students an opportunity to live among Irish students during their semester abroad. Students will be living in Corrib Village, NUI Galway's campus accommodation. The complex is beautifully nestled on the banks of the River Corrib and located only minutes from the vibrant and cultural Galway city, making it the perfect option if you are looking for comfort and affordability in an ideal location.

NUI Galway campus accommodation is part of the Campus Living group, which brings together state-of-the-art campus facilities and commercial services at the National University of Ireland Galway.
