While formally established as an autonomous university in 1997, NUI Maynooth traces its origins to the foundation of the Royal College of St. Patrick in 1795, drawing inspiration from a heritage that includes over 200 years of education and scholarship. The University is a place of lively contrasts. It is a modern institution, dynamic, rapidly-growing, research-led and engaged, yet grounded in historic academic strengths and scholarly traditions.

The humanities, social sciences and natural sciences form the academic and intellectual core of the University, complemented by strong departments and programmes in teacher education, computer science and electronic engineering, business and law. NUI Maynooth has an international reputation for research in humanities; social and spatial sciences; mathematics, communication and computation; and human health. This research connects directly with our teaching, and with wider societal needs through a very successful knowledge transfer office. NUI Maynooth is very much an engaged university, making significant contributions to social, cultural and economic development at local, regional and national levels.

The University community comprises over 9,000 students and 800 staff from more than 20 countries. The institution has grown rapidly in recent years, but retains a student-centered and deeply collegial ethos.

NUI Maynooth has recently launched a new University Strategic Plan 2012-17, charting a clear and ambitious direction for the development of the University, including major enhancements in undergraduate and postgraduate education, focused investment in research, further internationalization, and deeper engagement with enterprise and the community.The University is located in the historic town of Maynooth, 25 km from Dublin.
