The alliance of Dublin Institute of Technology, Institute of Technology Blanchardstown and Institute of Technology Tallaght will merge to create Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin).
The University will be located on three campuses at Grangegorman, Blanchardstown and Tallaght.

"It's going to be a very exciting future for students who attend this amalgamation.
"It will be transformative and it will be of benefit to the students. They will get the best in class experience in the very first technological university opening in Ireland."
