Like other Institutes of Technology, it also draws students from neighbouring counties, such as Meath, Kildare, Cavan and Louth as well as from further afield.
The first ITB sporting club was founded in ITB in October 1999. Since then, ITB has tried to facilitate all sporting preferences. ITB Sport believes that college life should be a life defining experience in which you try new things, take up new hobbies and meet new people. Taking part in sport is a great way to achieve this.
With the excellent sports facilities available at ITB, the level of student participation and club membership has increased each year. We look forward to a successful year for all our clubs, many of which will be competing at intervarsity level.
Loved my course and how engaging my lecturers were
I enjoyed studying at Institute of Technology Blanchardstown. What I liked the most is that lecturers were quite supportive at times and understanding. What could be improved? Food was expensive at the college. Also apart from student support systems (not from lecturers) and social systems, there is not much to be improved. I had just felt the course wasn't for me.
