Campus Tour


Bolton Street

Our Bolton Street campus has been a centre for technological education for over 100 years. This three-storey neoclassical building was designed by CJ McCarthy and was built in 1908. It has since been extended in 1961 and again in 1987. Plaster representations of artisan figures decorate the hallway and corridors of this ornate building. The figures are casts from John Henry Foley's models for figures at the base of the Albert Memorial on Leinster Lawn. Despite substantial extensions, the essential historic character of the building has been maintained and the building forms an important part of the surrounding streetscape.

There are many breakout spaces around the building providing students with multiple different locations to quietly study, work in groups or socialise. As well as this the campus has a dedicated students union space and social space on the ground floor close to the main entrance, outside spaces, coffee dock and restaurant and library. This area is truly the heart of the campus and you will often find students relaxing or working in this area from when the campus opens in the morning to when it closes at night.
