Campus Life

Going to university is more than getting a qualification. It is also an opportunity to create new friendships and possibilities.

When I first drove into the student town of Maynooth for an Open Day, I immediately realised that this was somewhere that I could call home. St. Patrick's is not only a beautiful place aesthetically, but internally it is home to a close-knit community of staff and students. If you choose Maynooth, I can say with confidence that you will leave a number of years later with a lump in your throat; and the town, the University and the people will hold a special place in your heart that will remain with you forever.

Living in Maynooth Ireland


Maynooth is Ireland's only University Town. It is home to a vibrant community, rich in heritage and modern conveniences, with excellent transport links across Ireland. There is something for everyone. Explore Maynooth. Come have a coffee.

Students of St Patrick's are entitled to all the support services of Maynooth University and the Campus, while getting the attention that comes with being in a small learning community. The best of both worlds.
