More information may be added to this page over the coming weeks so please keep checking back! Your timetable is also subject to change, so please check it before you come in each day during Freshers' Week.

Non-EU students should have received documentation after accepting their offer. If you are a non-EU student and you did not receive information from the School of Medicine, please contact Medadmin@tcd.ie

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. Health Screening

New students must complete TCD health screening requirements. Failure to do so may result in you being withdrawn from your course and a re-admission fee will apply.

Go to the Health Screening page to download the booklet and follow the instructions in the checklist.

3. Garda Vetting

All students on this course must complete the Garda Vetting process before they will be able to register. Go to the Garda Vetting page to download the forms and follow the guidelines carefully.

4. S2S Mentor Meet-Up

Your first orientation activity will be an online S2S Mentor Meetup on Friday 25th 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 25th 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.

5. Orientation Timetable

Orientation 2020 is scheduled to take place from 25 September to 02 October. These dates are subject to change in accordance with government guidelines. Your orientation timetable will be available here before Freshers' Week.

You must register to attend online sessions and if you would like to attend the Provost's Welcome in person. Unfortunately places are limited to 45 for the Provost's Welcome Address, but you'll be able to watch a livestream of Wednesday's Address at www.tcd.ie/students/orientation/provosts-welcome.php from 18.00.

You must attend the events shown in blue. We would encourage you to attend the other scheduled events, as they have a lot of useful information to help you hit the ground running.
