The West Quad for TU Dublin is part of the overall development of the Grangegorman site, it comprises approximately 21,000sqm over 6 floors, including a basement.

It will be home to the university’s College of Business, part of its School of Languages, and along with other academic facilities it will include an own-door exam and event hall.

The project received planning permission a number of years ago. In November 2023 a refresh application for Planning Permission was lodged with Dublin City Council to ensure compliance with all of the new requirements of the recently published Dublin City Council Development Plan 2022-2028.

The building responds to the neighbouring Academic Hub and Library with a double-height open archway facing a similarly scaled covered open space at the Library.

An publicly accessible open route links through the West Quad to Prussia Street.

The West Quad will provide an engaging civic and academic environment; encouraging the mix of both people and ideas.
