Student advisers provide support for all students during their university experience. Located in all colleges, student advisers work in conjunction with the chaplains and representatives of the academic and administrative staff.
Student advisers are here to help you make your time at UCD as fulfilling and enjoyable as possible. You can contact them in relation to personal, social or practical issues. From simple requests for information to more confidential and serious matters, they will give you the time and space to talk things through.
Student advisers strive to:
- Promote social, academic and personal development of students.
- Serve as a resource for students and staff about student support services available in the university, such as the Student Health Service, Chaplains, Students’ Union.
- Provide an open-door policy; meeting individual students and advising them on personal, social, or practical matters and where necessary, referring students to other team members, to the central support services or to the Student Health Service.
