Smurfit Building, Beaumont Hospital
Smurfit Building was first opened at Beaumont Hospital – the University’s principal teaching hospital – in 2000 and is home to the first Clinical Research Centre to be situated on a hospital site in Ireland.
RCSI Medicine students from Senior Cycle spend a lot of time in Smurfit Building, attached to general medical and surgical teams during clinical skills training and participating in research activities.
Upgrade to innovate
To improve the experience for our students, the University upgraded facilities in Beaumont and added a 30,000 sq. ft. three-story extension to Smurfit Building in 2018.
RCSI invested in the region of €11 million in the upgrading work, which includes a new student concourse with a fully-catered café; a series of large flexible multi-functional tutorial rooms with state-of-the-art AV facilities; open-plan faculty offices and meeting spaces; and new laboratory and research facilities, including a write up space for students.
