University College Dublin (UCD), a member of Universitas 21, traces its origins to the Catholic University of Ireland founded in 1854 by Cardinal John Henry Newman, author of the celebrated The Idea of a University. Since then, the University has played a central role in Ireland’s advancement as a dynamic and highly successful European state and has established a long and distinguished tradition of service to scholarship and the community. Today, UCD is a vibrant, modern university situated on a spacious and leafy campus some 3 miles to the south of Dublin city centre. It has over 1,482 faculty and 32,000 students, and it is Ireland's largest university. For students, both Irish and international, it is a supportive and stimulating environment in which to spend a period of intellectual and personal development.
