TU GRANGEGORMAN CAMPUS - OCTOBER 2019

TU GRANGEGORMAN CAMPUS PHOTOGRAPHED OCTOBER 2019

I live a few minutes from the campus and it is about a seven minute walk to the area shown in my photographs assuming that I can pass through Kings Inns and the new pedestrian-cycle route connecting Constitution Hill to Grangegorman. Access to Kings Inns is limited at weekends and bank holidays] and the cycle-path is currently operational from 7AM to 4PM Monday-Friday and 7:30 to 14:00 on Saturdays. If access is not available it takes about thirty minutes to walk to the main campus.


Recently DIT Grangegorman College was rebranded as TU.

In 2014, the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown (ITB) and Institute of Technology, Tallaght (ITT) jointly entered into a formal process to merge into a university. At the time, following the "Institutes of Technology Act of 2006", there were fourteen IT's in Ireland, and a political appetite emerged to amalgamate several to form a more advanced third-level institution, known as a technological university, similar to that of Delft and other technological universities in Europe.

The Dublin bid, proposed by the three institutes, eventually coalesced in 2014 to seek designation as a technological university under the project title "Technological University for Dublin Alliance" / "TU4Dublin". A final application was submitted in April 2018, following the signing into law by President Michael D. Higgins of the "Technological Universities Act 2018".

The formation of the Technological University of Dublin was approved in July 2018, and the university was formally established on 1 January 2019, on which date the preceding institutions were dissolved.

The university consists of three main campuses, located in Grangegorman ("City Campus"), Blanchardstown, and Tallaght - the campuses previously of DIT, ITB, and ITT respectively, the institutes which have amalgamated. The Grangegorman campus will complete ongoing relocation of activities at Kevin Street and Cathal Brugha Street, expanding its capacity to 10,000 students, while development is planned for the other two campuses during the formative years of the university.

According to the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, the new university will have an "entrepreneurial ethos", and will offer degrees and programmes ranging from Level 6 to Level 10 in the National Framework of Qualifications. While having an emphasis on computer science and STEM subjects, given its status as a technological university, Minister for Education and Skills R
