University College Dublin (also known as UCD) (Irish: An Coláiste Ollscoile, Baile Átha Cliath (COBÁC)), formally known as University College Dublin – National University of Ireland, Dublin (Irish: An Coláiste Ollscoile, Baile Átha Cliath – Ollscoil na hÉireann, Baile Átha Cliath) is Ireland’s largest university, with over 1,300 faculty and 30,000 students.
It is located in Dublin, the Irish capital.
The university originates in a body founded in 1854 as the Catholic University of Ireland with John Henry Newman as the first rector, re-formed in 1880 and chartered in its own right in 1908. The Universities Act, 1997 renamed the constituent university as the “National University of Ireland, Dublin”, and a ministerial order of 1998 renamed the institution as “University College Dublin – National University of Ireland, Dublin”.
Originally located in the centre of the metropolis, all of the university’s faculties have since been relocated to a 133-hectare (330-acre) park campus at Belfield, four kilometres to the south of the city.
A report published in May 2015 showed that the total economic output generated by UCD and its students in Ireland amounted to €1.3 billion annually and that the total number of jobs they generated was 8,914.
