Modern accommodation for busy students
Recognising that growing student numbers in Galway have put a strain on the housing market, Montane is development a modern 254-bed student scheme just past the Kirwan roundabout on the Coolough Road. The scheme will offer high-quality student accommodation in a location convenient to NUI Galway, along with a number of ancillary amenities.
The scheme will be built in several blocks on the site, ranging from one to four storeys tall, while the 254 bedrooms will be grouped in 38 clusters. On-site amenities will include shared student spaces, a gym, a multi-purpose room and laundry and storage facilities. 280 bicycle spaces will also be provided, encouraging affordable and healthy transport links to NUI Galway, just 2km away.
The scheme is located on a site just 2km from NUI Galway, making this accommodation ideal for the university’s growing population of non-Galway-based students. Access to the development will be just off Coolough Road, with pedestrian crossings planned for there and at the Dyke Road. Galway is incredibly popular for students, both Irish and international, thanks to its high-quality third-level institutions, great atmosphere and variety of social activities and night life.
