Welcome to UCD Parity Studios, a university wide programme connecting the rich ecology of art practice in Ireland with research and education at University College Dublin.

We offer year long residencies to professional artists who are interested in developing collaborative projects in a university environment. Artist studios, based in converted laboratories in UCD School of Physics, provide a bright working hub and supportive environment for this unique community of artists at University College Dublin.


Supported by UCD Colleges of Science, Social Sciences and Law, Arts and Humanities, Engineering & Architecture and College of Business  artists are offered an artist’s fee, 24 hour access to artist studios , access to UCD academics researchers and students, talks lectures and symposia and UCD libraries .


Our mission is to create a dynamic network of  professional artists, academics, researchers and students, working at the intersections of their disciplines.
