Student Pad opportunity for rentersHomeowners and landlords can now advertise directly to students in Carlow, Wexford and Waterford using SETU’s StudentPad. Read more »




We look forward to welcoming many new students to Carlow for the first time in September. Many students coming to Carlow for college will be renting accommodation from landlords. As always when doing any business online, try to ensure that the source is trustworthy.

  • Make sure you see the property before you pay for it.
  • Tenants should not pay large deposits in advance without viewing inside the property and meeting the landlord of the property.
  • In general tenants should always meet the Landlord of the property face-to-face, in the property being rented, prior to entering in to any arrangement.

SETUStudentPad is a website to help connect SETU students in Carlow, Waterford and Wexford with homeowners with a room to rent, landlords with a house or apartment and individuals looking for a flat mate or housemate. Check out the properties available to rent at
