HOW DO I GET THERE?

For your convenience we have a fully secure multi-story car park conveniently located directly opposite the main building.

“There are four main car parking facilities (CP1 – 4 as shown in the map below) available on the DCU campus for staff, students and visitors to the University. These car parks provide just under 1400 spaces for in excess of 14,000 campus users. In addition there are some designated car parking facilities for the DCU Sports Complex, DCU Residences and overflow/bus parking. The management of the car parking facilities is designed to facilitate the maximum number of DCU staff and students who need to commute on a daily basis to DCU. Parking is allowed in car parks only. No Overnight Parking is permitted without prior authorisation. Clamping is in operation throughout the campus.” – www.dcu.ie/estates/parking.shtml

 

CAR PARKING IS A CHALLENGE DUE TO DEMAND – WE RECOMMEND PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The Helix is serviced exceptionally well by public transport.
