Recommended Routes


A bicycle is a great way of commuting to and from the UCD Festival. There are over 4,000 bicycle parking spaces on campus. There are four public repair stands complete with multiple tools and an integrated bike pump located throughout UCD at the below locations:

  • James Joyce Library
  • Student Centre
  • Glenomena Student Residences
  • UCD Quinn School of Business


Please dismount and walk with your bike across the concourse as there will be many festival goers with children sharing these thoroughfares.


UCD is well served by public transport. Bus stops are located at the rear of the Sports Centre and the main terminus next to the Sutherland Building. Stops are also located just outside campus gates at Roebuck Road, Clonskeagh Road, Fosters Avenue and the N11 (main entrance).

The following Dublin Bus routes serve the UCD campus: Route 11, 39a, 46a, 47, 145 and 155. More info can be found on
