MTU’s new €13m, 1,200-seat Arena is now open on its Bishopstown Campus
It’s a state-of-the-art building.
The much-anticipated MTU Arena is finally open on MTU’s Bishopstown Campus, ready to cater for sports, societies, and other University activities including conferring ceremonies, careers fairs, and exams.
This €13 million development, the first of several new buildings which will be built at the University, includes a 1,340m2 hall, two studios, a café, and a spacious gym. Ultimately, the Arena will be open seven days per week and membership of the gym will be open to students, staff, and members of the public.
The venue, the main hall of which can accommodate 1,200 people seated, will also be available for hire by external groups, including local community groups, for concerts, exhibitions, and other events.

“MTU Arena was built in just two years despite many challenges, not least a global pandemic,” said MTU President, Professor Maggie Cusack.
“The delivery of this state-of-the-art building is a testament to the dedication of all those involved in the project and to MTU’s commitment to becoming a truly great university.”
The University will host an official opening ceremony for the multi-purpose arena over the coming months. Booking inquiries can be made by email to email@example.com.
