Live CAO Online Q&A UCC

Live CAO Online Q&A UCC

UCC will hold a live Online Q&A session for prospective undergraduate students tomorrow, Thursday 26 January, 3-5pm. Participation is easy - students can simply go to www.ucc.ie/caolive and type in their question. Registering to participate is not required so anonymity, if preferred, is guaranteed. A panel of staff from around campus will be on hand to answer all queries. We have been finding that this is a forum that this age group feel comfortable in, so we ask that you encourage your students to join in!

Campus Accommodation 2017/18
UCC anticipates that initial demand for UCC Campus Accommodation will again exceed supply for the academic year 2017/2018. As a result of this, and following extensive research and on-going discussion with our reservation system developers, Campus Accommodation will this year generate a lottery system using a Randomiser Algorithm. Some important points to note about reserving accommodation this year:
 

  • Applications will open on February 7th, 2017 and close on March 7th, 2017.
  • The link to the Application Portal will appear on the UCC Campus Accommodation website on February 7th 2017. 
  • Booking Deposits are not required to make an Application
  • Allocations per category i.e. First Year Students; International Students etc. are predetermined by Campus Accommodation UCC Ltd.
  • Applications received before the closing date and with a valid CAO number will be included in the random selection lottery.  
  • Rooms will be offered to successful applicants, by e-mail, in the first round of the lottery at the end of March 2017. 
  • Successful applicants are required to confirm within one week, i.e. pay the Booking Deposit of €250.  Once the initial room offers have been made; all remaining applicants are placed on a Waiting List.
  • As cancellations come in during the summer and are processed up to the beginning of the academic year, the lottery continues and rooms are offered to students on the Waiting List.
  • Accommodation for all eligible CAO students is determined by this lottery system and probabilities of receiving a room are the same, regardless of when the application is made between February 7th and March 7th. 
  • In the case of cancellations, €200 is refunded, from a deposit of €250.
