Student Residences

UCD has developed a masterplan to provide more students with high-quality accommodation in residential villages on campus.

These vibrant and socially engaging hubs will include a range of amenities such as shops, cafes, banks, and parking and bike space, to provide a safe and comfortable living environment for students.

Lounges, study spaces, and gym facilities, as well as outdoor recreational spaces are all designed to enhance students’ well-being and reinforce UCD’s healthy campus ethos.

New UCD Athletics Track

UCD’s new IAAF standard 400m 8-lane athletics track was officially opened on September 28, 2022. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the donors whose vision and commitment have made this wonderful milestone possible. Their generosity is phenomenal, and their dedication and support give countless UCD students the confidence and inspiration to succeed.

Having this fantastic facility right on their doorstep will be a game-changer for UCD’s elite athletes, and it will benefit the entire university community. Its impact will extend far beyond the campus, as UCD strives to Build a Healthy World.
