New €3m track and field facility

The development of sports and recreational facilities promotes social interaction on campus, creating a vibrant community spirit and greatly enhancing the student experience.

Philanthropy has played a vital role in the development of UCD’s Sports & Leisure facilities, most recently in the development of a new, state-of-the-art running track. This new piece of sporting infrastructure will enable athletes of all levels to train on Belfield campus, and marks another valuable addition to our on-campus sports facilities.

Thanks to a generous philanthropic donation, we are in the process of delivering a world-class athletics facility comprising an eight-lane 400m IAAF synthetic track, with a grass infield area suitable for athletics and multiple field sports. The new track is expected to open in the 2020-21 academic year.
