Global Room – Information and Student Space
The Global Room space in the Watts Building is specifically designed to cater to students of Trinity, with a focus on the international student community. Managed by an International Student Liaison Officer, and supported by a team of Global Ambassadors, the Global Room team provides guidance and support to international students on a wide range of issues including immigration, accommodation and all aspects of life at Trinity. The Global Ambassador team are current Trinity students trained to help with queries that may arise during the transition from an international student’s home country to Ireland.
Over 300 international-themed events are held each year in the Global Room student space such as national holiday celebrations, seminars, movie screenings and art showcases. These events are run by both the Global Room and a diverse range of Trinity’s clubs and societies. Home to a wall of plasma screens, visitors to the Global Room can access television channels from across the globe, and these screens can also be used for presentations, movie nights and much more.
