CELEBRATING 50 YEARS AT
UCD Belfield

Welcome to the Belfield 50 celebrations

29 September 2020 marked the 50th anniversary of the main move by UCD from Earlsfort Terrace to Belfield, with University administration, and the faculties of arts, social sciences, law and commerce joining science on the new campus. The Belfield 50 Project gives us the opportunity to celebrate what makes this campus so special, its foundations, its buildings, its memories and its people. Over the past six decades generations of students have spent their formative years on the Belfield campus and their time at UCD has helped mould their life journeys.

Visit our Timeline Exhibition!

If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit our timeline exhibition on campus (on the external windows of the basement of the UCD Restaurant building), please join us here as we evoke memories of the evolution of the Belfield campus from its inception in the 1960s to the present day, alongside some key events in the history of the University.
