The Year Ahead

New recreational places and study spaces; 2018 is looking bright.

Open to learning

Thinking of studying at UL? Visit their Open Day on Thursday 18 and Friday 19 October and learn about the range of undergraduate, post-graduate, mature and part-time, and professional courses available. There will be presentations, information stands and campus tours to give potential students a flavour of the facilities and services on offer.

A redeveloped space

The new Glucksman Library will be a technology-rich hub with an extra 1,200 study spaces for silent and collaborative learning. Some 6,000 sq metres of space will be added to the existing library including a Special Collections area with exhibition, reading, presentation and digitisation spaces which will provide facilities for media creation, practice presentations and high- end computing. Other new or redeveloped areas will include a graduate reading room, smart classrooms and group study rooms, a Health Science library and a Law library.

Building blocks

It’s full steam ahead for the new Student Centre building at UL with the design getting the seal of approval from the Governing Authority. The proposed three storey, 3,529 square metre centre will be next to the Stables Complex and the Library and the building has been designed to house a number of new activities that were identified following consultations with the student body, and will incorporate hang out spaces, relaxation and games areas, student union offices and student services.

Fun and games

The Aldi Community Games National Festivals will take place for the first time at University of Limerick from 25-27 May and and August 17-19.
