Urbanism > Maynooth, County Kildare, Ireland

This campus plan was commissioned by NUI Maynooth to provide a vision for development of the campus over the next 10 years and beyond. It envisioned a more compact campus, with theatre and library prominently positioned on the town approach road, re-named University Avenue, to promote community use of university facilities.

The grounds straddle the main road into Maynooth with the post 70’s campus on 50 hectares of fields to the north of the historic St Patrick’s College.

An additional 20,000m2 of accommodation is planned for the north campus,complemented by improvements to the whole campus.

The north campus has potential to match the magnificent landscape setting of the old college providing attractive settings for academic, leisure, recreation, and student residences clustered around squares and cloistered walkways.
