New DIT Campus at Grangegorman
Dublin Institute of Technology is building a new campus at Grangegorman in Dublin’s north inner city. The new campus development will consolidate all of DIT’s activities from 39 separate sites into one single campus. The project will also provide state-of-the-art mental health facilities, as well as a variety of public amenities, to be built on the grounds of St. Brendan’s Hospital in Grangegorman in Dublin 7. The first 1,000 DIT students will commence their studies there in 2014 with the site ultimately accommodating over 20,000 students and staff.
DIT’s new campus at Grangegorman is a significant project in terms of generating jobs and providing a key piece of infrastructure for education and to develop our knowledge economy. It is by any standards a huge project, and is anticipated to create 4,500 full-time construction jobs alone over the period, and over 1,100 more full-time jobs on completion.
DIT has been an integral part of Dublin for 125 years, not just as an educational provider but as a social and cultural resource. By consolidating all of DIT’s activities into a single campus, the Institute can continue to deliver student-centred education, industry-related research and technology transfer to future generations. Already the Health Services Executive and DIT are cooperating in major research and development projects, such as the new Environmental Health Sciences Institute which will be established at Grangegorman and for which DIT has been awarded €12.9 million in PRTLI funding.
