Located within DCU’s Glasnevin campus, The new U building opened by President Michael D Higgins is a Student Centre that will house over 125 clubs and societies creating space and to encourage more cultural diversity among the 115 different nationalities currently represented in the student population.

Out of the €15 million cost to build the project, some €8 million for the centre was raised by students after they voted in March 2014 in favour of a levy to help fund it. The remaining amount was donated by the Tony Ryan Trust, Bank of Ireland and DCU commercial activities.
