If you have any access or assistance requirements for orientation week please do let us know at transitionoffice@tcd.ie

1. Meet Your Tutor

You will receive an email in your MyTCD inbox (where you register) before you arrive which will tell you when your Tutor is available to meet with you during Freshers' Week. You must attend one of the two slots they will have available. If you can't make the times in the letter, email your Tutor and arrange an alternative meeting. Your Tutor will be really important for you during your time in College, so it's important that you meet them early.

2. Maths Preliminary Course for Business Students

If you didn't take Higher Level Maths please consider attending the Maths Preliminary Course. It's free, online, and aimed specifically at students taking Business subjects or Economics. Your first year modules will include some Maths and Statistics modules so this course will get you up to speed with what you will need to know to do well to hit the ground running when teaching starts.

3. S2S Mentor Meet-Up

Your first orientation activity will be an online S2S Mentor Meetup on Saturday 18th September. Check your timetable below to see what time yours is on.

Your S2S Mentors are fellow students who will play a critical role in helping you to navigate your first year in Trinity. They will make sure you:

  • Get to know other students
  • Have a space to ask questions
  • Know your way around the physical campus and the online resources available
  • Feel like you’re a part of the Trinity community

You will receive an email to your @tcd.ie address on or before the morning of 18th September with full instructions on how to join your Mentor meetup.

If you don’t receive this email, or have any difficulties attending your session, please contact student2student@tcd.ie and we will make sure you’re included in a group and that you get to catch-up on anything you’ve missed.
