In the 1960s, Ireland was characterised by a small elite system of higher education, catering almost exclusively for professional and public sector employment. The Mulcahy Report recommended the establishment of a number of Regional Technical Colleges around the country, highlighting that Irish people generally did not have the opportunity to become technically skilled.

The Mayo Campus is located next to Mayo General Hospital, less than ten minutes walk from Castlebar Town.
It opened its doors to students in 1994, in the west wing of the Hospital. The entire building has been sensitively restored to retain as much as possible of the original architecture, while providing the modern facilities and services required for students and staff.
The Mayo Campus specialises in nursing and outdoor education, as well as offering courses in business, technology, health sciences and more.
GMIT Sports Hall offer the following facilities to students:
Clubs and Societies
The lectures are lovely and the course would have been great, but because of covid we missed out on a lot of field studies and personally I think some situations could have been handled better.
I enjoy the University's societies and clubs, along with the small campus. This facilitated an opportunity to get to know my peers and lecturers on a more personal basis. I was disappointed however that there was no Erasmus available for the course I was studying, as I would have loved to have been able to travel during my studies.
GMIT is a very nice and good college. My study experience is very good I live attending this college and lecturers are very helpful with everything
