S2S Mentoring

Your S2S Mentor is a very important person in your first year. They are fellow students who will show you around, organise social events and answer any questions you may have (no matter how small!). In order to assign you to a mentor group for your course, we need your permission to share your name and TCD email address with your mentor. If you would like to opt-out of mentoring, please email studen2s@tcd.ie

ID Card Collection

You will collect your ID card at the end of your S2S Mentor Tour. Your S2S mentor will give you a wristband on your tour which gives you access to the Exam Hall so it's important to attend your tour.
