The University developed the Hub in the centre of the campus by extending and conserving the historic Windle (medical) Building. Located at the heart of the University, the Hub is at the centre of UCC's commitment to delivering a world class student experience. By bringing together previously dispersed and unconnected activities and programmes, the Hub provides space within which more of our students can take part in activities that impact significantly on their retention, progression, success and employability.

The c. 4,000mHub was completed in late 2019 and occupied in January 2020. It  houses a range of activities and services providing opportunities for all UCC students to become independent thinkers ready for the challenges of the 21st century - part of a diverse and globally-oriented academic community, 'world ready and work ready'.
