Welcome to our First Year and International Students

Home / Welcome


Congratulations on obtaining a place in the Pontifical University, St Patrick's College, Maynooth. You are most welcome as you begin your studies in this historic setting. I hope that your time here will prove to be one of enjoyment, discovery and personal enhancement.

If at any time you need assistance, support or advice on any matter, please do not hesitate to make an appointment to see the Student Mentor, the Registrar or any member of the Theology Office.

Read the handbook that will have received. It is intended as an information package to help you in preparing for registration day and your first weeks at College. Please take the trouble to read it. It will help to facilitate your early adjustment to University life.

Be sure to always check the notice boards in Loftus Halls and your University email account on a regular basis. Its the best way to ensure you are up to date on all matters relevant to them.

All the details you need are below. Just click on the box.

Getting your degree is obviously the most important part of University life but you can also have a great time while you do it.

May your time and work here be memorable, fruitful and enjoyable.

Michael Shortall, Registrar
