Temporary Accommodation for Nursing Studies

A new Nursing degree programme was established in UCC in September 2002. To accommodate a large intake of students in the academic year 2002 - 2003, UCC decided to develop vacated space within the UCC Enterprise Centre to accommodate five dedicated lecture rooms together with a clinical studies room, canteen and administration facilities.

These teaching areas were supplemented with rented accommodation in the Gate Cinema (3 no. cinemas) together with administration offices in Crosses Green.
