Scott Tallon Walker have been appointed following a design competition to begin work on a new Student Centre for Maynooth University and Maynooth Students’ Union (MSU).
The centre will serve as the hub for student life on the campus and is part of the next phase of Maynooth University’s campus development plan. The plan is aimed at providing the critically important campus buildings and infrastructure needed to meet the changing needs of students, staff and the wider community.
The new student centre will serve as a home-from-home for students and a focal point for student life. The new building will open in early 2021 and serve as a hub for MSU, clubs, societies, events, and a wider variety of activities that help to create that special sense of belonging that is so important to the Maynooth student experience.
Scott Tallon Walker Architects have also designed the University’s Library, Iontas and School of Education buildings – the Student Centre will create a distinctive destination on campus that is welcoming, vibrant, friendly and inclusive. The Student Centre will be built and operated to the highest sustainability standards, including an innovative ‘outdoor living room’ under a sustainable canopy, blurring the distinction between indoor and outdoor space and creating a unique space and resource for student life.
