Sod Turned at Oisin House Student Accommodation

Date added: 07 Dec 2017

Minister Mitchell O’Connor today turned the sod on Oisín House at Trinity College Dublin.

The new purpose built student accommodation will comprise 250 bed spaces, disability services, retail units, a health unit, sports and recreation facilities and Estates & Facilities support space once complete.  The overall floor area will be 12,110 square meters and the building will be six floors high.

Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor said:-
“I am delighted to have been invited by Trinity College today to turn the sod on Oisín House. A development which will play an important part, not only in the life of the University, but also in helping to reduce the difficulties that students are faced with in arranging accommodation during the current housing shortage.

“I launched the National Student Accommodation Strategy on this site last July and I am delighted to be back here today to see the progress of an important contribution to the targets set out in that plan.

 “Delivering purpose built student accommodation is not simply about reaching targets, it is about offering real choice to students and reducing the inevitable stresses which come with looking for somewhere to live.”

Bennett Construction were appointed as the Main Contractor on this development and recently commenced on site.  The project will be ready for occupation in 2019.


Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor turned the sod at Bennett’s new student accommodation project ‘Oisin House’ for Trinity College Dublin with Provost, Patrick Prendergast, President of Trinity College Dublin Student Union, Kevin Keane & Bursar, Veronica Campbell.
