Maynooth & Campus Life
The beautiful and historic town of Maynooth is the fifth largest town in Co. Kildare and the only University town in Ireland. It has a population of over 12,000 people, though this swells to over 20,000 during the academic year with the arrival of the University students.
This creates a vibrant and buzzing environment for social, sporting and cultural activities. Maynooth is YOUR town too and you are a big part of this community! So Explore the Town, Have fun and equally important RESPECT your town.
For many students, Maynooth will provide a home from home, as well as a place of study. You are urged to treat your neighbours with the respect that you and your family expect in your own home area.The university and the Maynooth community work in close partnership to integrate the activities of the student body and the town, through initiatives such as the joint community relations project. During your time in the university you will have many opportunities to engage in co-operative ventures with representatives of the business, social or sporting life of Maynooth.
