The following table includes the information requested by the Deputy. As budgets for projects that have not yet reached the contract award stage are commercially sensitive, I have included a cost range.

Name Description Completion Cost Range (€m) DFHERIS Contribution (€m)
UCD Future Campus Phase 1 project. This is currently at pre-planning stage and will include a new Centre for Future Learning and a Centre for Creativity as Phase 1 of a planned transformative process for the Belfield campus. 2023 >100 25
E3 Trinity College Dublin New building on TCD's main campus to accommodate the E3 (Engineering, Environment and Emerging Technologies) Institute. 2024 50-100 15
In addition UCD received €3,999,000 and TCD received €2,798,000 by way of a devolved capital grant for minor works and equipment for the 2020/21 academic year. This flexible funding complements other large-scale capital investments in the sector that will help expand availability of student places and transform campus infrastructure over the coming years.
