We have two modern campuses in very central locations, Letterkenny and Killybegs.
Seventy-five percent of our facilities are less than 20 years old and most of the remainder have been updated in recent years. Our buildings and equipment are top of the range. The standard of design and maintenance of buildings and grounds is exceptionally high. As a result LYIT is an attractive place to study.
There are lots of teaching rooms specifically designed and equipped for particular purposes. For instance, clinical skills suites for nursing that mimic a hospital situation, design and audio-visual studios, science, engineering, computer and language laboratories. All of these will provide you with the facilities you require up until you graduate. We have state-of-the-art equipment and audio-visual projection facilities in all general purpose teaching areas, lecture theatres and the library. We’ve also ensured that there are plenty of special access facilities for students with disabilities.
Outside of the teaching spaces you’ll find other useful facilities, including meeting spaces, performance areas, chill-out space, recreation rooms, and several dining areas and cafés serving a wide variety of food and beverages including barista coffee. Facilities are also available for consultation with a wide range of student services providers: medical, counselling, careers, learning support unit, etc. Other useful facilities include a bank branch with ATM, oratory, shop, vending, reprographics and postal facilities.
The on-campus sports facilities are excellent and comprise an all-weather, floodlit pitch, a huge hall equipped with retractable seating and gear for all sorts of sports – including a climbing wall. There’s also a large, airy, fully equipped gym, changing rooms and shower facilities. Ample cycle and car parking is provided on campus. Electric car charging points and new bus stops are welcome additions.
