Be at the centre of things

Dublin is a vibrant, multicultural, European capital and Trinity students take full advantage of everything the university and the city have to offer.
The vibrant social scene in the city and on campus ensures that students enjoy a unique university experience. Trinity’s main campus of cobbled squares, historic buildings and green playing fields also includes state-of-the-art modern facilities for teaching and research and a Sports Centre with a climbing wall and swimming pool. The Trinity Library is one of the world’s great research libraries, and some of the country’s major research centres in fields such as the Arts & Humanities, Nanoscience and Biomedical Sciences sit side by side with our rich heritage.

Be part of a supportive community

Community is a key element in the Trinity education and every student can benefit from a wide variety of available supports.
A core aspect of the Trinity education is the potential for co- and extra- curricular activities which broaden and reinforce the experience of a Trinity graduate. Student societies have been an essential part of life at Trinity since the 17th century. Our sports clubs range from rugby to Ultimate Frisbee, catering for everyone from social members to Olympic athletes. Culture and the Arts are key to Trinity’s heritage and are reflected in our student experience. Student wellbeing is extremely important at Trinity and we offer dedicated personal support and wellbeing services. The Graduate Students’ Union acts as a voice for the postgraduate student population.
