The new centre will include a permanent exhibition space in the currently unused Aula Maxima, originally the university's main hall. Architects Scott Tallon Walker have produced a design for linking the Aula Maxima to the other Newman House buildings to improve access. Failte Ireland has provided a €2.5m grant towards funding the centre, with a "substantial" philanthropic donation coming from Martin and Carmel Naughton.
UCD says the Ulysses Centre will be a "rich resource for visitors to Dublin who will enjoy immersing themselves in a wonderful literary experience".
