I’m losing track of all the new buildings going up out there, especially the ones on the other side of the Shannon.
Splitting the campus in two like that was not a good idea. The campus lacks any sense of a centre as it is and the atmosphere there in the evenings and on weekends is very much that of an abandoned business park. Spreading the buildings out to the extent that they are is not the way to go – it will fragment the campus even more, dissolve whatever atmosphere that already exists, and make life hell for students and staff going over and back that bridge during the winter months (unless they provide a shuttle bus). I have talked to a number of staff members in UL and they are not convinced that this is the way the university should expand.
