The Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairí Quinn T.D., today launched the procurement by public private partnership of two new technologically-advanced education buildings – the Central and East quads – at DIT’s new education campus at Grangegorman. This project is valued at some €180 million.

DIT’s new campus will accommodate approximately 11,000 students and staff when completed and occupied in September 2017, consolidating up to 40 buildings into a single site. This will derive significant efficiencies for a key third-level institution, which constitutes some 10% of all third-level education places in Ireland.
