DIT Grangegorman Campus
Stabilisation Works to Historic Structures
The Lower House, formerly known as the Richmond Asylum is the oldest surviving building on the Grangegorman campus. Built in the early 19th century to designs by Francis Johnson (who designed several other landmark buildings including the GPO and the Armagh Observatory), the original building has fallen into a state of dereliction over many decades. Work has now commenced (by Bourke Builders) to stabilise this building and the old Church of Ireland church, thereby halting the decay and preparing for their eventual restoration, which will occur later in the development of the campus.
The Landscape Continues To Change
The latest aerial shot of the campus shows the west side of Lower Grangegorman now fully laid out. An Croi stands out with the adjacent new structure of the Greenway Hub now constructed to its full height. The artificial playing surfaces have been completed and the grass pitches now fully defined. Most of the heavy groundworks are now taking place to the east of Grangegorman Lower, where the underground services and St Brendan's way are being extended to the Broadstone Gate entrance. To facilitate the opening of Broadstone Gate, a new bus park is being constructed for Dublin Bus just out of shot beside the Lower House.
We've moved again
The Campus Planning office has moved from its previous home in Park House to the newly refurbished section of the Clock Tower building. With excellent views of the courtyard and of the newly emerging Greenway Hub building, we are once again back on campus. Directions to our new location can be found at the Location Map link in the Contact Us section below.

The development of the New DIT City Centre Campus at Grangegorman will provide several types of learning activities for staff and students over the course of the project. This section will be developed as a link to these activities as they arise.
Over time, a wide variety of learning activities will be added. For now, the following is a small selection of the variety of learning activities that have already taken place on the project.
