TU Dublin is committed, within the limit of its resources, to facilitate access and participation to all buildings within the University. In April 2019, TU Dublin became the first Irish Higher Education Institute to receive a Recognition of Excellence trophy from the National Disability Authority in celebration of a decade-long collaboration with our founding Institutions, and our commitment to the application of Universal Design.
The NDA award commended the University’s commitment to several pillars of Universal Design, including the design of buildings that are welcoming, accessible, and inclusive such as the CONNECT Student Services Building on the Blanchardstown campus and the ongoing development of our Grangegorman Campus.
TU Dublin aims to provide a welcoming and supportive environment to students from all educational and social backgrounds and encourages applications from students with physical or sensory disability.
Where obstacles to accessibility are identified, our Disability Liaison Officer can work with students to address them, whether they relate to mobility or require assistive technology in the classes and lecture theatres.
