Life at SETU Waterford - campus and culture

Your first year at SETU Waterford is a chapter in a book you’ll want to read over and over again.

The college has gone all out to create a modern campus scene that’s perfect for both students and staff. We’re talking about not just one, but multiple campuses that are totally on point.

You’ve got the main campus and the College Street campus, both buzzing. Then there’s the Applied Technology campus, and the new Architecture building in Waterford Treasures, right in the heart of the city. But wait, there’s more! The campus at Carriganore, just a skip away from the city has already seen some major upgrades and is all set for even more exciting development in the future.

Carriganore isn’t just any campus. It’s the hub of research action, especially in the tech field and the Sports Campus at Carriganore is levelling up big time. They’re dropping €10.5 million on a multi-purpose sports arena.

So, as you step into SETU Waterford’s campus, prepare for a year of exploration, growth, and a great campus life. Get ready to live, learn, and embrace every moment!
