UCD students studying in Virginia, USA, safe and well

The appalling tragedy to hit Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University yesterday has left us all horrified and saddened at senseless loss of life and the devastating impact on the families of the victims. This university - staff and student body, sends a collective message of sympathy and solidarity to the students and staff at Virginia Tech.

UCD currently has three undergraduate students on a year placement with Virginia Tech.

They are all safe and well. We have been in touch with the three students and their families. Our primary concern is their safety and well-being. They have, at this time, chosen to stay in the US and UCD will continue to support them through this difficult time. They also have the support of Irish Government through the embassy in Washington.

We have opened a Book of Condolence, which will be sent to Virginia Tech. Please visit to add your message.
