Planning permission has been approved for two major developments at IT Sligo. The project will include a complete rebuild of J Block, which will turn the single floor 1970’s building into a modern four storey complex.
The project is part-funded through Project Ireland 2040 and will help support additional new places for students at IT Sligo.
The announcement also significantly boosts the Institute’s plans to become a Technological University in partnership with GMIT and LYIT this year.
The go-ahead has also been given for the rebuild of Block L in the Institute’s north campus which will facilitate the consolidation on campus of the recently established Yeats Academy of Arts, Design and Architecture and form a North-Campus Creative Hub in IT Sligo.
Minister for state at the Department of Health and Sligo Leitrim TD Frank Feighan says the development is another step in establishing a Technological University in the North West
