The NUI Galway campus is located on the western bank of the River Corrib and extends from near the city centre to the mouth of Lough Corrib. The Department was established in 1962, the Chair of Geography in 1968. The Department is housed in purpose-built accommodation between the Concourse and the river. It has a large practical room with cartographic facilities, a number of small laboratories, a PC and GIS suite and an extensive map collection. Geography students have access to the university computer network.

Typically, each full-time member of the faculty is involved in Postgraduate supervision with M.Litt. and Ph.D.'s and teaches three speciality courses per academic year to second- and third- year students and contributes to first-year lectures, practical classes and field class preparation and delivery. In addition, the Department is actively involved in the delivery of courses through the medium of Irish, which are taught by staff members with competence in the language and part-time members of staff.
