University College Cork has selected O’Donnell + Tuomey to design the university’s new student hub, which will house learning, student support and administration spaces in a new building adjacent to the campus’ Victorian Windle Medical Building, to the West of the main quadrangle. Selected for their ability to work within and around the historic buildings, the project will also see O’Donnell + Tuomey restore the medical building.

The new student centre will be the second building designed by the practice for University College Cork, a decade after the completion of their Stirling Prize-shortlisted Lewis Glucksman Gallery.
