UCC as a Conference Venue
University College Cork (UCC), situated in the heart of Ireland’s second largest city is a vibrant University steeped in culture and history. Established in 1845under the reign of Queen Victoria as one of 3 constituent National Universities of Ireland in Cork, Galway, and Belfast. By the beginning the twentieth century however, it was clear that higher education in Ireland required a new arrangement to drive development. That change came in 1908 through the National University of Ireland (NUI), of which the former QCC, now University College Cork (UCC) is a founding member.
UCC’s expansion over the past 100 years has been vast, from just 115 students in 1908 to over 20,000 students currently enrolled in the vast campus, which now has dozens of modern buildings. UCC has earned a global recognition and influence, and is a multiple winner and current holder for 2017 of ‘The Irish University of The Year’.
The UCC campus is an ideal venue for any academic conference as it offers excellent in-house services. The rooms utilise the most up to date audio and visual teaching and conferencing technologies and the overtly helpful university staff can be approached at any time. The campus itself offers opportunity for relaxing and the scenery contains beautiful landscaped gardens surrounded by many classical, historical buildings and architecture. And if you feel adventurous after a day at a conference, UCC is located just a stone distance from many world class attractions that the country has to offer, including Blarney Castle, Jameson Experience Midleton, Fota Island and numerous picturesque coastal towns. A céad míle fáilte awaits.
