ULSU is the representative body for all UL students.

Students automatically become members of the Union upon enrolment, and from that day on the five sabbatical officers listed above, as well as the part-time members of the Union`s Executive do their best to represent and help you with any problems you may have during your time in college. ULSU represents you both within and outside the University, as well as providing you with services such as a fortnightly newspaper,  welfare and academic advice, clubs and societies and much more.

Drop-in from 11-12 and 3-4 Weekdays

The Counselling Service is located in the CM corridor of the Main Building, around the corner from the Student Health Centre.

The Counselling Service is a professional psychological service available to students to assist them on their progress through University life, with all of its incumbent stresses and strains. Many personal decisions are made and problems solved though discussions with friends or family, a Student Advisor, Course Director or a nurse, GP or chaplain. However, there are times when it may be right to seek help away from the familiar daily environment. The UL Couselling Service was set up in 1977 to meet just such a need..

he Student Health Centre is located in block C, level M (room CM061) in the main building and provides a service for University of Limerick registered students only.

The Student Health Centre Reception/Administration Office opening hours are Monday to Friday 09:00:-12:30 and 14:00-16:30.

Appointments can be made by either telephoning or by calling in to the Student Health Centre Reception.

The Student Health Centre is an acute care/advisory service, it is not a GP service. All students are therefore advised to register with a local GP.

Alternatively students can attend Dr Ronan Ryder, Old Windmill Medical Centre, Lower Gerald Griffin St., Limerick. Students will be offered a reduced rate of €30 and medical card holders will be seen for free at Dr Ryder’s surgery in the city (please note the Student Health Centre cannot accept medical cards).  An out of hours service is also available at this clinic.

The UL Chaplaincy works to meet the many and varied religious needs of a global university campus. It recognises that life at UL is a dynamic, ever-changing experience, which brings all kinds of new opportunities and challenges to students. The chaplains offer a welcoming space and supportive presence to students and staff. They promote an open and caring environment where diversity is respected.  The key activities of the UL Chaplaincy team falls into 3 categories

  • Support
  • Worship/Spirituality
  • Outreach/Volunteering.

The Chaplaincy operates from its office CM071 in the main building (where a waiting room is shared with Counselling), a Chaplaincy Centre ‘Teach Fáilte’ (beside the bookshop) and the Contemplative Centre (opposite the SU).

Students are welcome to visit Teach Fáilte, our drop in centre in the Students’ Square.  This Centre is driven by, and responds to the needs of all students equally and is one of the busiest and most welcoming students’ hubs on campus.  It is open daily from 10.30am to 4.30pm.  Individuals or groups are welcome for a casual cuppa and chat.  In times of difficulty students are assured of a listening ear and may be facilitated to avail of other supports on or off campus.
