Services

Housing services

The new campus will  provide student residencies on site. The student residences will offer a range of housing formats from 6 bed and 3 bed apartments to private studio/family units. Ground level spaces for dining, social and study lounges, and related shops serve to activate the Serpentine Walk on the south side, and St. Brendan’s on the north side.

ICT services

A fundamental characteristic of DIT is to provide a pervasive student-centred learning experience, and the use of technology is key to the delivery of this goal. 

ICT Services will realise this vision through consultation and partnership with DIT students and staff, and with our Directorate colleagues in Staff Development, and the Learning, Teaching & Technology Centre.

Medical services

The DIT health service provides an holistic approach to health, providing on campus health care to those students pursuing full time & apprenticeship courses. Our service incorporates physical, psychological and social aspects of student health and health promotion.  Absolute confidentiality is maintained.  

Student Life

Campus life

Dublin is a lively European capital city with a vibrant cultural life and a large, young, student population.  Currently based on six campus sites in the city centre, within the next few years, DIT will relocate all its activities to a new education and research campus in the heart of the city at Grangegorman.  The new campus will be a unique international innovation hub for the Dublin region, with education, research and health facilities co-located with industry, business incubation and community enterprise. 

Sports facilities

DIT Sports facilities are now located at four DIT sites providing both indoor and outdoor programmes and facilities to DIT students, staff, the local community and DIT Sports clubs.

Our White Flag award winning indoor facilities operate as the DIT Fit2Go Club at Kevin St and Grangegorman. We also have a gym in Bolton St (Linenhall) and new outdoor sports facilities at both Grangegorman and Broombridge. In addition we are in the planning stages for extensive indoor sports facilities on campus in DIT Grangegorman.

International students are not always welcome, there are teachers who didn't let us attend their classes. But on the other hand I'm really happy with the classes I attended. I really appreciated the teaching method and the fact that classes were small so that everyone could participate
