UCD Students’ Union - How UCD SU works for you
UCD has roughly 25,000 students on campus which is an awful lot of people to fit into one room so that is why we have Full-time Officers, Conveners and Class Reps.
These are the officers of the Union that look after the day to day running of the Union and deal with any problems that the Convenors are having trouble with. We are also here if you feel that your problem needs special attention. To find out who the Officers are, please visit the Students’ Union website
: These are effectively heads of schools for the class reps. There is a Convenor for every college in UCD: Arts, Human Sciences, Engineering and Architecture, Science, Business and Law, Agriculture and Veterinary and Health Science. They are the go-to guy/girl for when there is a problem that a class rep can’t deal with on their own or even if they just need a little help, your college Convenor is always on call to lend a hand.
We have representatives from every programme in UCD and they are responsible for dealing with problems that classes might have with their lecturers,
organising parties for their class and organising the class hoodies and of course the class trip. Anyone can do it so don’t forget to drop in your nomination form by Thursday, 25 September.
