Grangegorman Campus Development
In April 2018, building work began on the East and Central Quads in our new campus in Grangegorman which will accommodate 10,000 students by September 2020.
Grangegorman is an historic area of Dublin City Centre, just 1km from O’Connell Street, and only sixteen minutes from St. Stephen’s Green on the Luas.
The East Quad will be a Cultural Hub not only for the Grangegorman campus but also for the city.
From September 2020, it will be home to four Schools which are currently spread across our campuses in Aungier Street, Kevin Street, Rathmines and Grangegorman:
- Dublin School of Creative Arts
- School of Media
- Conservatory of Music and Drama
- School of Languages, Law and Social Sciences
Designed to support the artistic work of students and staff across all creative disciplines, the East Quad will facilitate exhibitions of students’ visual artwork as well as dramatic and musical performances in the 400- seat Concert Hall, 80-seat Black Box Theatre and 80-seat Recital Hall. Students can also use external spaces for performances, media projection and exhibition of sculptures. The Central Quad is situated at the heart of the Grangegorman campus. With a vast floor area of 35,000 square metres, it will be home to the College of Sciences and Health, the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering as well as the Schools of Culinary Arts and Food Technology, and Hospitality Management and Tourism, representing the following disciplines:
- Biological Sciences
- Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences
- Food Science and Environmental Health
- Physics and Clinical & Optometric Sciences, including the National Optometry Centre
- Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- Culinary Arts and Food Technology
- Hospitality Management and Tourism Highly specialised laboratories and learning centres will provide a worldclass learning environment for students and researchers while substantial breakout areas will be available on every floor to allow students to gather in small groups to discuss project work. Large lecture spaces, including a 250-seater main theatre, are clustered on the ground floor alongside training restaurants and hospitality facilities so that students can enjoy a range of dining options.
