Te UCD Global Lounge opened in 2011. It is a dedicated space for the promotion of inter- nationalisation on the Belfield campus. It is located on the lower ground floor of the Gerard Manley Hopkins Centre. Te UCD Global Lounge serves two principal purposes: as a friendly and relaxed social space for Irish and International students to meet and hang out; and as a dedicated venue for seminars, recep- tions, talks and other events relating to inter- nationalisation.
Tere is satellite reception from around the world on 12 televisions, which can combine to act as one large screen television, featuring news and other television stations from vari- ous different countries. We host a number of events here throughout the year for Irish and international students.
