Student 2 Student (S2S) is a group of student volunteers who are here to help you with student life:

From the moment you arrive in College right the way through to your end of year exams Student 2 Student (S2S) is here to make sure your first year is fun, engaging and a great foundation for the rest of your time in Trinity.

You willl meet your two S2S mentors in Freshers’ Week and they will make sure you know other people in your course before your classes even start.  They’ll keep in regular touch with you throughout your first year and invite you to events on and off campus. 

Your mentors can also give you useful information about your course and what to look out for.  Mentors are students who have been through first year and know exactly what it feels like, so you never have to worry about asking them a question or talking to them about anything that’s worrying you.

S2S also offers trained Peer Supporters if you want to talk confidentially to another student or just to meet a friendly face for a coffee and a chat.

S2S is supported by the Senior Tutor's Office and the Student Counselling Service.
