No. 26 York Street – opens autumn 2017

RCSI’s state-of-the-art new academic and education building, located at 26 York Street, Dublin 2 will open in autumn 2017, in time for the new academic year.

The College has invested approximately €80 million in the development of this modern, practical and sophisticated facility which, once completed, will be used to educate our future healthcare leaders.

The 120,000 square foot development, spanning 10 floors, will comprise a world-class surgical and clinical training suite containing a flexible wet lab, mock operating theatre, clinical training wards, standardised patients rooms and task training rooms.

It will also include a 540 seat auditorium, a library spanning three floors with 500 study spaces, a sports hall and fitness suite, and has been designed to be both energy efficient and environmentally responsible.


The development of the facility was announced in May 2014 by then Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairi Quinn TD and President of RCSI, Professor Patrick Broe, with work beginning in October 2014. Over the course of a two-year period, the project has created approximately 600 jobs with hopes that many more will be created once the new building opens later this year.
