We love our international students and wish to make your arrival as easy and comfortable as we can. We will help you settle in, so you can get on with your academic and social plans and start enjoying your experience here at Ziggurat Galway.
Below we have compiled a list of answers to some of the questions that international students often ask when coming to stay with us. If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Can I reserve a room?
To inquire about booking a room, please contact us. We’ll be delighted to help you with the booking process.
Can I book a different move in and move out date?
We are flexible in respect of dates for moving in and moving out. Licence Fees are calculated by reference to set dates – but you may move in after these dates, and move out before them.
Can I change my room during my stay?
We will do our best to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Sometimes people wish to move to different rooms during their stay – for example, if their friend is living in a different part of the building, and they wish to share a kitchen and living area.
We can’t always facilitate moves like this – but will do our best to do so. If you’re in the process of booking – just let us know your preference, and we’ll do our best to make the arrangements. If you’re already resident in the building, just drop by the reception and inquire.
As a student, can I move in earlier?
Sometimes, by specific arrangement, we can facilitate people moving in earlier. It isn’t always possible though. Please email us and we’ll do our best to help.
How can I extend my stay?
Sometimes, by special arrangement, we can facilitate people in staying longer. It isn’t always possible though. Please email us and we’ll do our best to help.
