In 1997 the University opened the "Daedalus Building", at the heart of the Campus. This facility is one of the first to be built specifically for language learning in Ireland.
It was designed to provide the best possible learning environment and for optimum integration of the latest technology in language education. Inside there are audio and video laboratories, a library and a computer aided language study area with 21 computers available (one free hour of Internet daily). Up
