Student Experience and Facilities

Creating a home where talent thrives…

At DCU, we challenge and champion our students to reach their full potential. Through their experiences here, we want them to thrive, discover and develop the skills they will need to shape their future and world for the better.

Every year, the 19,500 students who cross our threshold enjoy many world-class teaching, learning, social and sporting facilities that simply would not exist without the incredible generosity of our donors.  From the John and Aileen O’Reilly Library and the McNulty Computing Building, to The Helix arts and culture venue and The U, our state of the art student centre, philanthropy has helped to build our campuses.

Our supporters also provide experiences that contribute to the holistic development and wellbeing of our students – whether that is supporting DCU clubs and societies, promoting student physical activity and wellbeing, or providing cutting edge supports to enable top student athletes to excel in sport and in life.
