University College Dublin sought to enhance the University’s reputation by providing a welcoming collegial environment, designed to strengthen the links between the university, alumni, and the community it serves. The UCD University Club was designed to provide University staff, corporate clients and the community with a first class social engagement setting, a place for hosting high quality social and dining facilities, designed to cater for small and large scale University and corporate member events, complemented by the excellent existing conference event facilities of O’Reilly Hall.
The Club serves as a unique resource encouraging the interaction of University Staff across all disciplines while also delivering an outward facing venue designed to foster relationships with other institutions, government and industry partners. Designed as an extension to the existing O’Reilly Hall, the complex provides a comprehensive suite of resources in a strategic arrangement of meeting, restaurant, cafe and lounge facilities. The Club has its own identity and is accessible to all faculty, staff and alumni members on campus.
