Gardaí are to share the addresses and information of house parties with NUI Galway.
The move is being taken following the 100's of young people who gathered in the city to drink on Monday night.
There were also a number of house parties in accommodation believed to be rented by students, according to the Irish Times.
Gardaí say they disperesed the crowds in Galway at around 10pm and they are not investigating breaches of Public Health Regulations by those who were there.
NUI Galway described the scenes as 'deplorable', and said students could face expulsion if they breached public health guidelines.
