College Highlights

General

One of DIT’s most historic buildings, Bolton Street was specifically designed and built for technical and technological education in 1911, on the site of what was once the European Hotel.  Since then and up to the present day, it has been a centre of leading-edge technological education in the College of Engineering and Built Environment.  Bolton Street and Linenhall, its sister building across the road, are home to students of architecture, mechanical and civil engineering, environmental planning and construction, from apprentice to postgraduate levels.

Amenities

Sports

DIT has a great sporting tradition across a wide spectrum of sports. The Grangegorman campus is home ground to DIT’s outdoor competitive team sports of camogie, Gaelic football, hurling, rugby and soccer. Indoor facilities at Kevin Street College Campus cater for martial arts, fitness and health-based pursuits. In addition to the on-campus amenities, students can also access the Larkin College sports complex which offers facilities for badminton, hockey, futsal and climbing.

Student life

DIT’s city centre locations mean you’re never too far from anything that grabs your interest. Dublin has a wide range of cafes, bars, pubs, restaurants, shops, museums, pop-up shops, outdoor markets, art galleries and entertainment facilities, not to mention concert venues, theatres, festivals and events. One notable benefit of attending DIT are the free eye examinations in the National Optometry Centre at DIT Kevin Street while many businesses offer student discounts on a range of products and services throughout the capital.

Students’ Union

The Students' Union is run for students by students. It's the place to go if you have a query or need some extra support, as well as having lots of extra information pertaining to education and welfare.  

Public Transport

Getting Around

DIT Bolton Street is located in the north of Dublin city in Dublin 1. The capital’s vast public transport system means that no matter where you are, you’re never far away from the LUAS line, a DART station, a Dublin Bike or a bus service. If you're planning to use public transport a lot, you can save more on fares across LUAS, Dublin Bus and DART routes by buying a Student Leap card.

There are two lines; the Red line operates from Tallaght to Connolly station in the North city centre; the Green line operates from Sandyford to St Stephen’s Green in the South City centre.
