A €100m investment has been announced for Trinity College.
The European Investment Bank loan will go towards initiatives in engineering, environment and emerging technologies.
The funds will also be used to expand the School of Law, build new student accommodation and refurbish exiting buildings.
The investment will allow for nearly 2,000 extras student places for STEM subjects.
Provost of Trinity College Dublin, Dr Patrick Prendergast, said:
“We are investing in educational and research facilities for the benefit of all our students and staff. The financing EIB has provided to Trinity has been crucial in strengthening our research and education facilities."
"Without such support, we would not have been able to progress with important flagship projects such as E3 and much needed student accommodation."
"Their support combined with important philanthropic fundraising are essential in building a better university for the benefit of all.”
