NUI Galway changes name to Ollscoil na Gaillimhe - University of Galway

Published 18 October 2022

NUI Galway has formally changed its name to Ollscoil na Gaillimhe - University of Galway.

The change of name and branding is an effort to strengthen its identity further and emphasise its status as a university to an international audience.

NUI Galway president Professor Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh said: “This university has been in Galway and of Galway since the mid-nineteenth century. Ollscoil na Gaillimhe, University of Galway, gives a clearer sense of who we are as an institution and of being of our place.

"Galway is a place of industry and creativity, of citizenship and debate. An in-between place, at the centre of a network of campuses stretching from Shannon to Donegal, including in our Gaeltacht regions, on the edge of and between continents, we here see the horizon every day."
