Special Facilities: The National Science Museum of Ireland is located on the South Campus.
The Library facilities have recently undergone a 20million euro upgrade and extension, finished in September 2012. The new restaurant facility was opened in 2012.
The South Campus is home to several medieval buildings dating from the 1800s, including some designed by the famous architect Augustus Pugin, and the chapel on the south campus is a beautiful building.
The Science facilities include laboratories for Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacy, and Physics and are all only 15 years old, so are home to very modern facilities.
Eight Research Institutes are housed on campus: Hamilton Institute, Institute of Immunology, Callan Institute, National Centre for Geocomputation, Innovation Value Institute, National Institute for Regional and Spatial Analysis, An Foras Feasa, and Edward M Kennedy Centre for Conflict Resolution and Mediation
