Age Friendly University

At DCU, we are committed to opening up every aspect of campus life to respond to the needs and interests of older adults.

In 2012, we became the world’s first Age-Friendly University, recognising the need to meet the challenge and opportunities of a rising demographic both nationally and globally. Many other universities have followed our example and our Age-Friendly University Network has grown to 15 members across Ireland, the UK, Canada, the USA, Australia and South Korea.

Through the Campaign, we are seeking support to establish a number of initiatives demonstrating our commitment to this project.
