Welcome to Trinity College Dublin

Our city centre campus has been the beating heart of Dublin and Ireland for well over four centuries. I first came here as an engineering student in the early 1980s and I can still recognise the well-loved campus of my youth but it’s also been transformed into a global, interdisciplinary 21st century university.

Trinity researches at the cutting edge in exciting new fields like nanoscience, immunology, creative technologies and digital humanities as well as all the traditional disciplines. We welcome students from over 120 countries, and we drive innovation and entrepreneurship in both research and education. Trinity produces a fifth of all spin-out companies in Ireland and we are Europe’s number 1 university for educating entrepreneurs.

There is so much activity ongoing across the university – with research projects, access programmes, public lectures, student clubs & societies, plays, readings, workshops, exhibitions, outreach… We’ve done our best to capture the full myriad of activities in this website. I hope you’ll enjoy exploring these pages to learn more about this great university.
