Pedestrian access from the town centre is on College Street and It is flanked by the Cathedral to the South and by the magnificent VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art to the North.

The former entrance on College Street is now a pedestrian entrance and the railings which replace the high walls show off the college, its parkland and the Arts Centre, as an attractive feature of the town. The college is within walking distance of the facilities students need and the new entrance on the Dublin Road, with its spacious car park, facilitates vehicular access for the many students who commute to the college from the surrounding counties.

Carlow College is proud of its long history and it maintains its strong tradition as a student friendly campus where students and lecturers work together to create the optimum atmosphere for student and personal development.
