Freedom of Information (FOI)


These pages are intended to assist you in exercising your rights under the Freedom of Information Act 2014 and to assist Trinity staff in answering Freedom of Information requests.

Under Irish Freedom of Information Legislation, every person has the following legal rights:

  • the right to access official records held by public bodies (FOI Body) prescribed under the Act;
  • the right to have personal information held on them amended where such information is incomplete, incorrect or misleading; and
  • the right to be given reasons for decisions taken by public bodies that affect them.

If you would like to exercise one or more of these rights in relation to information that may be held by Trinity College Dublin, please click here for details of How to Make a Freedom of Information Request.

This website makes a range of information about Trinity available within a Publication Scheme, and also provides a Disclosure Log detailing FOI Requests processed by Trinity since January 2015.

Supports for Trinity staff who are FOI Decision Makers or Internal Reviewers can be found on our Training and Guidelines for Staff pages.

FAQs and Glossary and Useful Links both provide further information which may help to answer some of your questions.


If, however, you have any remaining queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Information Compliance Office.

Media and public communication enquiries should be made to the Press Office.

Other contact details can be found on the Trinity staff directory, People Finder, or on the relevant departmental websites within the Trinity website.
