Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris TD visited UCC this week.

The Minister met with students and staff and viewed the Old College Bar which has been transformed into the Calm Zone, a dedicated space of respite and calm for students, and in particular students on the autism spectrum.

The Minister saw how UCC has transformed its campus to meet the diverse needs of its students, with recently developed calm outdoor spaces including the Boole Courtyard and the Hawthorn Garden.

The Minister also met UCC staff on the #ProgresswithPride Rainbow Walkway. UCC had the first LGBT+ Staff Network & Student Society in an Irish university.
