DCU has recently incorporated three highly regarded Dublin Colleges; St. Patricks College, Mater Dei, Church of Ireland College of Education. All Hallows College is now also a DCU Campus and the main teaching campuses are within close proximity of each other in the Glasnevin / Drumcondra areas. The main DCU Glasnevin campus is mid sized with a unique university campus feel and 2017 will see exciting new building projects including a new student centre, additional accommodation and teaching facilities. Many DCU International students choose to stay on campus when possible for the first year. For these students, the gym is located right next to their accommodation on the main campus with a short walk to lecture rooms, the campus shop, student support and of course, the DCU Library. Friendliness and a willingness to assist all students runs through all aspects of student life on all DCU campuses.
