Welcome to the University of Limerick (UL). Centred on the majestic River Shannon, the University is set on a magnificent riverside campus of over 130 hectares in size. With the aim of providing new degrees relevant to Ireland’s membership of the European Economic Community and its emerging technology industries, UL was the first university to be created in the State since 1922. Founded as the National Institute of Higher Education (NIHE) in 1972, university status was achieved in 1989.
