This year, the last medical and engineering students will make the journey to Belfield and the Terrace will transfer to the National Concert Hall for major redevelopment as a multipurpose concert venue.

To commemorate 124 years of UCD at Earlsfort Terrace, we are organising a series of events between 17 and 20 May and invite you to join with us in celebrating the remarkable achievements of the staff and students of the University.
