The Aula Maxima is located in the Quadrangle in NUI Galway. The university is located near the centre of the city and stretches along the picturesque River Corrib. The oldest part of the university, the Quadrangle, designed by John Benjamin Keane, is a replica of Christ Church, one of the colleges at the University of Oxford.
