Cost of living

As the only university located in a town rather than a city, we estimate the cost of living to be less expensive at Maynooth University than at the other universities in Ireland. We advise students that cost of living including accommodation, books, entertainment, food, bills, etc. should roughly be budgeted between €7,500 - €10,000 per year. This is intended as a guide: expenses will vary from student to student.
