WIDE ANGLE VIEWS OF GRANGEGORMAN CAMPUS
8 September 2015: The playground on the Grangegorman campus opened today and has already seen hundreds of young testers pass through its gates. For anyone not familiar with the campus please see the map below for its exact location.

The fencing is currently being taken down around the area which means that everyone can now use the walking/jogging track surrounding the playing fields.

The Grangegorman Urban Quarter is a proposed education, health and community development by the Grangegorman Development Agency for Dublin Institute of Technology and the Health Service Executive. The site's design has been provided by the American architectural firm of Moore Ruble Yudell under the direction of Irish-born Architect James Mary O'Connor. The surrounding community is an equal stakeholder in the project and receives technical support from the Grangegorman Community Forum. On July 17, 2012 The Grangegorman Development Agency was awarded funding from the Irish Government as a part of a €2.5billion stimulus package for the country.

The first construction work to take place as part of the new DIT campus was in 2013 with the extensive refurbishment of several listed buildings. More than 1,400 staff and students moved to the campus 2014. A further 10,000 staff and students will move by 2017 into two major quads which are being built as public private partnerships.

When fully completed Grangegorman will accommodate over 20,000 staff and students and for the first time all DIT activities, currently in 39 buildings, will be located on one integrated campus.

The campus will be linked to the LUAS green line extension from the city centre to Broombridge railway station. Stops will be 'Grangegorman' and 'Broadstone-DIT'.
