Trinity College Is Looking To Sell Its Naming Rights For €1 Million


Don’t fret, the name isn’t going to change any time soon. 

Parts of the campus in Trinity College Dublin could potentially be renamed in a deal that’s worth €1 million to the university, over a five-year period.

According to a report in The Irish Times, consultants will be appointed by Trinity College to identify a donor (a person or a firm) who would be willing to pay approximately €200,000 per annum to have their “name plate” on parts of the campus that have not yet been identified.

A spokesperson for Trinity said that world-famous areas of the campus such as the Long Room and the Front Square will not be affected, ruling out the prospect of a “Ryanair Front Square” or “Guinness Long Room”.

The practice would be in keeping with the majority of Irish and international university campuses.

Should the naming of a location proceed it would be done with care and attention to the values of the college campus and community.

Got €200,000 to spare? 

You could get yourself a slice of the action.
