Media Relations

UCD University Relations is committed to communicating the knowledge, achievements, and activities of University College Dublin (UCD) to opinion-formers and the wider public.

Through media relations, UCD aims to give the public a clear understanding of how the university contributes to national, international and global society.

By preparing news releases and press statements, and arranging press conferences, media interviews, and photo-opportunities, UCD University Relations draws attention to the work, discoveries, and knowledge of UCD scientists and academics, to special events and guest speakers, and to the key successes of the university and its student community.

As the first point of contact for media enquiries, UCD University Relations  aims to provide clear, consistent, accurate, and timely information to journalists and reporters.

Aside from the specific activities outlined above, UCD University Relations also offers general advice, guidance, and support to staff and student bodies on publicity, media engagement, and media interviews.
