In 1865, the Magee College opened in Derry, Northern Ireland’s second largest city. After a series of mergers during the next 150 years, it was rebranded the Ulster University in 2014. Approximately 26,000 graduate and undergraduate students attend the public school. One of UU’s four campuses is located within Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter. Since 2013, it has been undergoing a £250 million expansion planned for completion in 2019. This first phase designed for the art college opened on York Street in 2016.
