Coleraine


Progress continues apace at our Causeway Campus in Coleraine as we count down the days to opening, with plans on track to be operational from 1 August 2024, ready for the new 2024/25 academic year.

Location

The new, purpose-built Causeway campus is situated on the current (but extended) site on Union Street, in Coleraine. Entrance to the main building will be via Union Street and Anderson Park, with the open airy ‘garden room’ extending the park space into the building.

The former St Patrick’s Church of Ireland Hall will be a self-contained performing arts and music centre, named St Patrick’s Centre, and is linked to the main building by a path. It is also accessible from Brook Street and Circular Road.
