LIFE @ ITC

At the Institute of Technology Carlow, every effort has been made to combine a stress-free location with top-level tuition and facilities that are the leading edge in a number of key disciplines both nationally and internationally.

In the current academic year, the Institute has a student body of over 5,000 and an academic staff of over 200. All of this in a town of 20,000 people with healthy industrial and business sectors. Carlow, just 80 kilometres from Dublin, is one of the largest inland towns in the country and with its strong industrial base, makes an ideal choice for the location of an Institute of Technology Campus.

Our large campus is situated on the banks of the beautiful river Barrow just five minutes walk from the centre of town. Our other campus is located in the thriving county town of Wexford where we have been successfully delivering third level education for over a decade.
