Getting to UCD

University College Dublin Campus

Belfield, the main University College Dublin campus is located on a 132 hectare site, 4km south of Dublin city centre. The campus is an attractively landscaped complex of modern architectural buildings, accommodating student residences and numerous leisure and sporting facilities.

The INMED 2013 Scientific Meeting will be hosted in the newly developed Sport and Student Centre (building 68 which is highlighted on the map below). UCD is accessible by two major entrances; Clonskeagh and Stillorgan. As Stillorgan is the main university entrance, buses and taxi’s generally serve this entrance more frequently. The Sport and Student Centre is approximately a 10 minute walk across the campus from the Stillorgan entrance.
