The National University of Ireland, Maynooth (NUIM; Irish: Ollscoil na hÉireann, Má Nuad; Latin: Universitas Hiberniae Nationalis apud Manutium), was founded by the Universities Act, 1997 as a constituent university of the National University of Ireland. It is Ireland's second oldest university, having been formed from St Patrick's College, Maynooth,[2] itself founded in 1795.

The university is located in the town of Maynooth, Co. Kildare, Ireland, 20 km west of Dublin. Its grounds consists of two connected campuses; an older south campus of 19th century buildings, shared with St Patrick's College, and a modern north campus, occupying circa 100 acres (0.40 km2).[3][4] With over 7,500 registered students, it is Ireland's smallest, yet fastest growing university.[5][6] In 2009, NUI Maynooth was listed as a Top500 university in the Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings.[7][8] The 2011 QS World University Rankings puts NUIM in the 501-550 bracket worldwide. In 2008 it was named Sunday Times University of the Year. In 2011, NUI Maynooth became the first and only institution outside of North America to be included in the Princeton Review of Best Colleges.[9][10][11]

History

18th and 19th centuries

St Joseph's Square, South Campus

The university and St Patrick's College, Maynooth have a common history from 1795 to 1997. The college in Maynooth was established by the government as a college for Catholic lay and ecclesiastical students in 1795,[12] the lay college was based from 1802 in Riverstown House on the south campus, with the opening of Clongowes Wood, the lay college which had lay trustees[13] was closed in 1817[14] and it functioned solely as a Catholic seminary for almost 150 years. In 1876 the college became a constituent college of the Catholic University of Ireland, and later offered Royal University of Ireland degrees in arts and science. The Pontifical Charter was granted to the college in 1896.

20th and 21st centuries

The college became a recognised constituent college of the National University of Ireland in 1910. From this time, arts and science degrees were awarded by the National University of Ireland, while the Pontifical University of Maynooth continued to confer its own theology degrees, as these had been prohibited in the Royal University of Ireland, and continued to the National University of Ireland (its successor) until 1997.[citation needed]

In 1966 the college allowed again the entry of lay students; this greatly expanded the college and essentially set the foundation stone for the National University of Ireland, Maynooth. In 1997 the Universities Act resulted in the transfer of the faculties of arts, Celtic studies, philosophy and science of the recognised college of St Patrick's College to the new university. The university has also expanded into finance and engineering since its creation in 1997. In 2007 the university added business studies, followed by law in 2008.

Any person who was a student of St Patrick's College, Maynooth and was conferred with a National University of Ireland degree as a result prior to the creation of the university is legally considered a graduate of the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.[15]

In 1994, W.J. Smyth, BA, PhD, LLD, was appointed to the position of Master of St. Patrick's College Maynooth(NUI), in 1997 this position became President of NUIM. In 2004 W.J Smyth was succeeded by Prof. John Hughes as president of the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.

Campus

The University campus straddles the main Maynooth to Kilcock Road in County Kildare. It is divided into the North and South Campuses (also referred to by staff and students as the "new" and "old" campuses respectively). The campuses were connected by means of a footbridge that crossed over the road until mid-2011. The footbridge was then decommissioned due to the construction of a library extension on the South Campus. The campuses are now connected by means of a pedestrian crossing on the Kilcock Road.

South Campus

Maynooth Castle at the South Campus gates

The South Campus houses the facilities of St. Patrick's College, as well as most of administrative offices it shares with NUIM. A number of NUIM academic departments also have their offices on the South Campus including Mathematics, Music, Geography, Economics and History. The main buildings, most of which were built in the 19th century, are the Aula Maxima; St. Patrick's House (including the college chapel); the John Paul II Library (built in 1984); New, Dunboyne, Humanity and Stoyte Houses which collectively form St. Joseph's Square; Logic House and Rhetoric House.

The first building to be completed on the South Campus was named after its designer, John Stoyte. Stoyte House, still a prominent presence on campus, stands in proximity to Maynooth Castle.

Over the next 15 years, the site at Maynooth underwent rapid construction so as to cater for the influx of new students, and the buildings which now border St. Joseph's Square (to the rear of Stoyte House) were completed by 1824. The university chapel is located on the South Campus, just off St. Joseph's Square; masses and choir services are frequently held in the chapel, as is the traditional Christmas Carol Service. The South Campus also houses the National Science Museum. [18]

North Campus

The North Campus was developed far more recently than the South Campus, in the latter half of the 20th century. Here, the main buildings are the Students' Union, Sports Complex, Biosciences and Engineering Building, Callan Science Building (named after the inventor of the induction coil, Nicholas Callan), the Iontas building, the Arts Building, the Science Building and the John Hume Building.

The North Campus also contains the student residences, most of the student service departments, a number of playing fields and a sports complex, which includes a fully equipped gym, that is free to all university students. The remainder of NUIM's academic departments as well as many research institutes such as the Institute of Microelectronics and Wireless Systems, the Hamilton Institute and the Institiute of Immunology are also located on the North Campus.

Iontas Building and The John Hume Building

Kilkenny Campus

The university has also maintained a campus in Kilkenny City since September 1997, based at St. Kieran's College, with students enrolled in certificate, diploma and degree programmes.

Academic organisation and reputation

The university is divided into three faculties: Arts, Celtic Studies and Philosophy; Science and Engineering; Social Sciences, with most students studying within one of these streams (although some cross-discipline courses are available). The faculties are further divided into various schools and departments.

About 15% of students are post-graduate level, with more than 1,000 students reading for a research degree.[citation needed] Some postgraduate students also have links to the various research institutes that are based on campus.

As well as the main campus in Maynooth town, the university also has a campus in Kilkenny city. Froebel College of Education will also become part of NUI Maynooth by 2013.

Students of the university and St Patrick's College take part in various dramatic productions throughout the year, ranging from tragedy to comedy, melodrama, farce and improv. NUI Maynooth Drama Society annually confers the Eugene Niland Spirit of Drama Award on a recipient who demonstrates an extraordinary level of dedication to the craft of theatre, complete with a display of integrity and honorable principles in the practice thereof.

The society is relaxed, easy-going and flexible to suit the student and the student can get involved as much or as little as they like. Some of the activities run are the weekly soup runs to the homeless of Dublin, local nursing home visits, homework clubs, flat decorating, training and courses and even volunteering with Sunshine House during the summers which are holidays for children of areas of disadvantage in Ireland. There are also social and fundraising events such as the extremely popular Fr Ted Themed Lovely Girls Competition, Santa’s Grotto, nights out, weekends away, BBQ’s, pub crawls, sleep outs, cake sales, quizzes, debates, charity ball, fun run, slave auctions, guest speakers, 5 a- sides, the PJ party and teaming up with the other University SVP Conferences. One of the highlights of the year is the societies free intervarsity weekend away usually held in the second weekend in November each year.
