SPORTS ON CAMPUS
At Maynooth University, we aim to provide as many students and staff as possible with the opportunity to partake in sports and physical recreation.
The formative years spent at university should encompass a lot more than study and course-work. Research and practical knowledge vouches that sport enables all of us to work and play better. For students, the lifestyle habits adopted during the college years are likely to be those for life. School-leavers just starting college have an obvious advantage and can anticipate quick gains through physical training which should stand to them for the rest of their years.
Maynooth University is committed to the development of sporting excellence and awards a number of sport scholarships annually to promote and foster sporting talent in the University. We have sports development programmes in:

The Maynooth Green Campus Committee (MGC) is officially in existence since December 2012. MGC brings together stakeholders from St Patrick’s college Maynooth (SPCM), Maynooth University, and the Catholic world development agency, Trócaire, headquartered on campus.
MGC’s goal is to achieve the Green Campus Flag which was duly awarded to the university in May 2018. This Flag is an international award and the award scheme is co-ordinated by the Foundation for Environmental Education, based in Copenhagen. The Flag is awarded to third level colleges that satisfy an assessment of progress undertaken by An Taisce.
To reach this goal MGC created a roadmap with a set of realistic objectives that fall under a number of thematic headings: Biodiversity, Energy Management, Water Conservation, Waste Management, Sustainable Travel and Transport, and Climate Justice.
