Our Brand New Residences Are Getting Closer And Closer

If you’ve walked around the Belfield campus lately, you can’t but have noticed the major construction works in progress.

This is the first stage of an ambitious programme of development that will provide over 2,000 new beds by the year 2024. This ensures that future generations of UCD students will  be able to source high-quality accommodation on campus, without being forced into off-campus accommodation in locations that involve a daily, time-consuming commute.

Work is already well advanced on the first stage in this construction programme, which will deliver 924 new dwellings from September 2021. This stage will also result in construction of an exciting new Student Amenity Building that will be an important new addition to our student facilities on campus.

To minimise disruption during this programme of activity, our contractors normally confine work to the hours of 8.00am to 7.00pm from Monday to Friday, and from 8.00am to 2.00pm on Saturdays. From time to time, however, there may be events onsite, including large deliveries, that require activity outside these hours, including at weekends.

It is inevitable that there will be some noise disruption while our builders are on site, and we would ask you to bear with us as we strive to deliver an even better campus for our current and future student body.
