The University of Limerick has now confirmed that students who have vacated their university-owned student accommodation will be refunded from the date they vacated their student residences. Along with the refunds previously announced by the other Universities, this means that all students in university-owned accommodation will receive pro-rata refunds if they have vacated their accommodation. 

Students should contact their accommodation providers directly for details on how their refund will be facilitated.
