New Grangegorman campus

DIT has been part of Dublin City for more than 130 years and we have campus locations in Bolton Street, Cathal Brugha Street, Kevin Street, Aungier Street, and Rathmines.  Now we are developing a major new campus at Grangegorman in the north inner city which will bring all of our activities together in one location, where students of many disciplines will enjoy a really excellent learning environment..  Since September 2014, the first 1000 students from the creative arts, photography and social science have been located on the new campus and by 2018 that number will grow to 10,000.  You are welcome to visit the Grangegorman at any time to see for yourself!
