Google Features Trinity College Dublin on University Street View
Posted on 11 August 2014
Students and visitors alike can now explore Trinity College Dublin’s historic campus on Google’s Street View feature. Street View allows users to move through the campus as if they were walking the cobblestones themselves. Last week, Google added thirty campuses to their collection of universities available to view with Street View. Four campuses outside North America are featured, including two in Japan and one in Scotland, in addition to Trinity College Dublin.
Google began adding university campuses to Street View in 2012. The latest additions to the Street View gallery include Georgetown University, Stanford University and the University of Keio in Japan. The feature will be useful for first-year students trying to learn their way around a new campus. Additionally, parents who cannot travel to Trinity themselves will be able to get a sense of the place their children will soon call home. Google intends to continue to add universities to the site in the future.
Taking a Street View spin around Trinity also provides a glimpse at what the campus looked like a few years ago. The images clearly show construction in Front Square, as well as the very beginnings of the cleaning of the Museum Building’s façade. Although improvements to College facilities continue, the Street View tour gives a great sense of the flow of the campus and the balance of buildings with green space within the city centre campus walls.
