Ulster University is a modern, forward-looking institution with student experience at the very heart of everything we do. Our high-quality teaching, informed by world-leading research across key sectors, boosts the economy and has a positive impact on the lives of people around the world. 

Ulster University’s new and enhanced Belfast campus is one of the largest higher education capital builds in Europe and will transform higher education in the city.

It marks a new chapter in delivery of the University’s mission to offer the best possible learning and teaching environment for staff and students, and to play our part in the economic development of local communities and the ambitions of North Belfast, the wider city and region.

The estimated investment regeneration impact of the Belfast campus development is circa £1.4bn, representing an urban regeneration multiplier ratio of 1:5. 

For society, the campus offers the opportunity to engage, learn and enrich our lives in a welcoming and innovative environment where students, academics, business and local communities are connected through ever-expanding possibilities.

The Belfast Campus catalyses a reimagining of the teaching and learning experience that is deployed across all our campuses, accelerating innovation in how we do things and ensuring implementation of best practice across all our campuses.

The new campus will incubate and develop the cream of our creative talent, scientific expertise and enquiry, engineering innovation and entrepreneurial drive all under one roof.

Innovation City Belfast (ICB) is a partnership formed by seven of Belfast’s anchor institutions: Belfast City Council, Belfast Harbour, Belfast Metropolitan College, Catalyst, Queen’s University, Ulster University and Invest NI as an advisory partner. 

ICB is combining knowledge, resources and influence to make Belfast an economic powerhouse for NI by attracting investment which will help NI businesses grow, scale and compete through innovation.

Belfast’s Innovation District comprises 400-acres in the heart of the city in an area rich in industrial and maritime history. The waterfront location is already home to universities, world-class research centres, SMEs and globally renowned, world-leading organisations. It offers a unique geographic advantage and benefits from strong international connections.

Belfast has come a long way both socially and economically since the Good Friday Agreement, thanks to the support of US FDI, government incentives, and high growth local companies – all underpinned by our two world class universities’ research and skills base. 

The city is poised to further boost our digital and tech sectors by investing €1.2bn in our innovation capability via the Belfast Region City Deal, leveraging our core strengths across key sectors such as FinTech, MedTech, GreenTech, Advanced Manufacturing and the Creative Industries. 

We’re capitalising on Belfast’s resilience and our unique market access to UK and Europe, whilst embracing the vast opportunities presented by the digital economy to create a city where innovation thrives.
