Unfortunately the area at the Broadstone Gate, where the LUAS tram stop is located, is beginning to attract some low level anti-social activity and it is increasing.
The East Quad is a Cultural Hub not only for the campus but also for the city. Opened in late 2020, students can access the East Quad directly via the Broadstone Gate – a new public plaza, which incorporates the Broadstone/University Luas stop on the Green Line. In addition, a range of Arts and Humanities courses are delivered in the East Quad in Art & Design, Media, Music, Drama, Dance, Languages, Law, Social Science, Education and Social Care.
The fluid nature of the design and the vibrancy of the learning environment facilitates exhibitions of students’ visual artwork as well as dramatic and musical performances in the 340-seat Concert Hall, 80-seat Black Box Theatre and 80-seat Recital Hall, all of which will be accessible to general audiences once public health restrictions are relaxed. In addition, the design of the external spaces and landscaping outside the building will also be conducive to various uses such as performance, media projection and exhibition of sculpture.
