Belfield, the main UCD campus is located in a beautiful 133-hectare parkland setting close to Dublin's city centre. The campus is the focal point for a vibrant community of students, staff and those who live in the locality. Visitors will find a mix of academic facilities, research institutes, libraries and archival collections, conference venues, enterprise space, residences, and sports and recreational facilities.

UCD has a proud sporting heritage and as a university competes across a wide-range of disciplines at national and international level. We also recognise the importance of personal health and wellbeing and the opportunities our superb range of indoor and outdoor facilities offer student, staff and the local community to pursue their own goals or just have fun.

The campus hosts many social events for students, staff and the local community. Whether it is going to the cinema, visiting an exhibition or meeting friends for a coffee and walk, there are numerous social activities to choose from.
