Our compact campus offers the best of both worlds. Packed with excellent facilities and services, our beautiful green campus is within easy reach of the bustling town centre of Dundalk, not to mention the island of Ireland’s 2 major cities.
Our wind turbine generates enough electricity to support 50% of the Institute's annual requirement.
DkIT prides itself on its diverse and friendly campus. Each year we welcome more than 600 international students to study here from more than 25 countries.
At DkIT we believe sport is for all and we know that taking part in sport can make a real difference to your time here and to your career prospects. Whether you're an athlete of a beginner, find out how you can get involved.
There are over 65 registered Clubs & Societies in DkIT and they cater for all interests, hobbies and passions. You can even set up your own!
College life can be expensive and at DkIT we try to keep costs down for our students. In fact, a recent report highlighted that Dundalk and the North East is 54% cheaper to live in compared to Dublin.
Founded in 1989, the DkIT Students’ Union is a democratic organisation, led by elected officers, responsible for representing the interests of its members (ie. DkIT Students) to the Institute and externally. Every year a president and vice president are elected to run the Student Union.
While the Students Union is part of the Institute, is an autonomous organisation with its own rules and regulations. It's not all about organising events and hanging out playing pool y'know! The regulations we abide by are set out in the Students' Union Constitution and define who is allowed to be a member of the Union, what kind of activities the Union can carry out, who is responsible for the management of the Union, and so on.
Purpose-built student apartments, with spaces for approx 550 students are a short walk from the main campus. There is also a large supply of newly built apartments and houses, suitable for renting, beside the campus.
Students can also choose to avail themselves of "digs" with families. further details in accommodation services can be obtained from the Students' Union Accommodation Service.
