University College Galway or NUI Galway has announced it's changing the name of the college.
It will get a bilingual name and be called Ollscoil na Gaillimhe - University of Galway.
A spokesperson for the college says they plan to adopt the new name at the end of this summer - so effectively for the start of the new academic year in September.
Speaking about the change, President of NUI Galway Professor Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh said, "The decision to rename our University is something to which we have given a lot of thought and it is a decision which is being taken following detailed assessment of the issues and comprehensive consultation and internal discussion.
"This university has been in Galway and of Galway since the mid-nineteenth century. Ollscoil na Gaillimhe - University of Galway, gives a clearer sense of who we are as an institution and of being of our place.
"Galway is a place of industry and creativity, of citizenship and debate. An in-between place, at the centre of a network of campuses stretching from Shannon to Donegal, including in our Gaeltacht regions, on the edge of and between continents, we here see the horizon everyday."
