This Lasallian International Programs Consortium opportunity is offered through Lewis University in collaboration with University College Dublin (UCD).  UCD is a dynamic, modern university - the ideal surroundings for learning and discovery. Established in 1854, the university had a major role in the history of Ireland due to its alumni, which have included famous architects, entrepreneurs, politicians, and writers (James Joyce graduated with is BA in 1902). As Ireland forges a new identity through relationships with international partners, the university is adopting an increasingly international outlook. Today, the university has about 22,000 students, with over 2,000 international students from over 50 countries.


You will be housed in on-campus accommodations during your time at the UCD. On-campus accommodations consist of residences on the Belfield and Blackrock campuses that have two, three, four, and five room self-catered apartments. These apartments are fully equipped and furnished except for kitchen/tableware. You can either bring these items with you or purchase them at the local shops, or purchase a ready-made kit through UCD’s Accommodation Office.
