Student Accommodation - DCU Campus

This new development, comprising of a total of 1250.en-suite bedrooms to be constructed in the eastern quarter of the university, constitutes a major new addition to the college and will have a transformative effect on the existing campus. The scheme comprising building blocks between five and ten storeys in height is located directly along the main campus ‘mall’, providing a new edge to this central landscaped space and completing the enclosure to the formal gardens. Building blocks are ranged around a series of four new hard / soft landscaped courtyards - each with their own distinctive character - and a series of new ‘streets’ will be formed providing pedestrian permeability to the scheme. Social / communal spaces are located at ground floor providing transparency / active frontages at street level and direct access to court spaces. Bike / car parking is provided at basement or undercroft level.
