How do I get to Dublin City University (DCU)?

For driving and public transport information to DCU , please see the university’s website. DCU’s Business School can be seen on this map of the DCU campus.

Using the DCU car park:

You can find the DCU car park directly opposite the business school. The outside of it is orange. NALA can pay for your parking, but you must pre-order your car park ticket from us. To pre-order, please email Fergus Dolan fdolan@nala.ie

We will give out the tickets at the morning registration on 25 January. You don’t need a car park ticket to access the car park on arrival. You only need it to leave the car park at the end of the day.
