Email Accounts

For new staff you must collect your Staff IDs from the Staff Office, House 4, TCD.

Staff ID cards are issued by the HR Office during the office opening hours as detailed below. Staff must present themselves to the HR Office to have their photo taken

Your ID card will be required if you wish to join and access the Library and Sports Centre.

Monday - Thursday: 9.00am - 5.30pm and Friday: 9.00am - 5.00pm

You must be on the payroll system for at least 48 hours before you can get your Staff ID. Generally email account and passwords are available when you are collecting your Staff ID, but occasionally you will have to visit the IS Helpdesk (Aras an Phiarsaigh) to be issued with it.

New Procedure to facilitate staff who can't activate their own email accounts nor collect their TCD staff ID cards

As the vast majority of staff within the School of Medicine work off-campus and can not travel to College to activate their email accounts nor collect their TCD staff ID cards Mary O'Neill can act on a staff member's behalf.

This procedure can't not be done on an ad hoc basis, ITServices have agreed 3 submissions per academic year March ; August and December.

Step 1: Please email Mary O'Neill (subject title 'request email activation') with:

  • a head and shoulders photo in .jpeg format
  • your current postal address (both postal address and email address)
  • your daytime phone number (landline/mobile and best time to contact you)

Step 2: Fill out the Library Bond

If you are intending to borrow from the Library your Library Bond form (will this work with draft in the URL?) must have been completed and returned to the Library (post to: Ms Iris Bedford, Berkeley Library, Trinity College, Dublin 2) before the correct Staff ID can be issued. The Staff ID will have the correct borrowing rights embedded in it. Let Mary O'Neill know by email whether or not you have sent this form into the Library before she contacts the Staff Office to activate your Staff ID Card.

Step 3: The Staff Office will post out your Staff ID card to your current postal address.

Step 4: Mary O'Neill will phone you with your TCD Network and TCD email username and password.

Step 5: The new staff member will change their passwords. Instructions on how to change your passwords is on the ISServices website
