Weekly Autism Drop-In Group

The Disability Service runs a weekly Drop-in group throughout the academic year. This group is led by Autistic student facilitators and aims to provide a space for Autistic students to connect socially, to discuss experiences of life as a university student and to share tips and advice for making the most of third level education. Whether you have a diagnosis of Autism or not, you are welcome to attend.

This year the group will take place every Wednesday in An Mheitheal, Printing House Square from 1pm - 2pm.

To register your interest, please complete the Autism Drop-in Group Mailing List form. By completing this form, you will be included on the group email list and will receive a weekly email with details of the upcoming session. Completing this form does not mean that you must attend the group every week. The group is a Drop-in style group, and you can attend as frequently as you wish.

If you have any further questions about the group or if you would like to have a chat with someone about attending, please contact

Occupational Therapy

There are loads of exciting things to get involved in within Trinity that also offer opportunities to meet new people and to participate in social activities. Getting involved in social and leisure activities is as important as your academic work, as it connects you to college life and helps you to build friendships. Occupational Therapy can help you to engage in social and leisure activities that you enjoy, and to find some new ones if you want to try something new. This may include:

  • Exploring your interests
  • Planning your routine to include time for leisure activities
  • Contacting societies
  • Meeting new people
  • Being in groups
