NUI Galway Students' Union
Provides the following travel related services for students
Irish Rail and Bus Eireann will only recognise the NUI Galway Student ID for 4 years from date of issue. They take the first two digits from your student number as the date of issue. If your card is more than 4 years old or you are a returning student and are using your original student number you will need to purchase a Student Leapcard in order to get discounted travel with Irish Rail and Bus Eireann. You can purchase a Student Leapcard from the Students’ Union office for €10.
Please call to the Students’ Union office upstairs in Áras na Mac Léinn for these services. We are open Monday-Friday 10am-5pm during term time.
