    The DCU story began in 1980, when our Glasnevin campus opened its doors to fewer than 200 students. Since then, our footprint and our facilities have increased enormously to cater for more than 19,000 students. Today, DCU has three academic campuses, as well as a sports campus and an innovation campus - all located in the Glasnevin-Drumcondra area of north Dublin.
