If you have any access or assistance requirements for orientation week please do let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
1. 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 Failure to do so may result in you being withdrawn from your course and a re-admission fee will apply.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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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 email@example.com 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 2021 is scheduled to take place from 18 - 24 September. Locations for your sessions will be added to the timetable by Monday 13 September. Despite our best efforts, with 1m social distancing in place in lecture theatres, some sessions will have to remain online.
