Why study at TU Dublin?

Ireland first Technological University
On January 1st 2019, the former Dublin Institute of Technology, Institute of Technology Blanchardstown and Institute of Technology Tallaght joined together, becoming Ireland’s first Technological University – TU Dublin. With 28,500 students TU Dublin is the place where the arts, business, science, engineering and technology converge.

Inclusive and open learning experience
The new University, one of the largest third-level educators in Ireland, provides inclusive and open learning experience offering pathways to graduation, from foundation to undergraduate to PhD, to students from all over the world. Publicly-funded, TU Dublin is a member of the European University Association.
Internationally engaged

Campuses spanning our capital city
TU Dublin is located on campuses spanning the three largest population centres of Ireland’s capital city - Dublin City, Blanchardstown and Tallaght – all of which are easily accessed by public transport.

A new state of the art Grangegorman campus on a 73-acre site in the heart of Dublin City is being developed as a location that encourages and supports knowledge advancement, sustainable development and inclusive education. By the 2020/2021 academic year, 10,000 students will be located on this campus.
Over the last decade, their Blanchardstown campus has been integral to economic growth in this rapidly growing suburb of Dublin which is now the industrial and commercial hub for Fingal county, with large concentrations of retail, pharmaceutical, IT, distribution and service companies.

Equally, their Tallaght campus is central to the life of this vibrant suburb, southwest of Dublin City in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains. With a population of over 100,000 it is one of Ireland’s largest urban centres.
