Our Hub for Students

The UCD Global Lounge is a hangout spot for all UCD students, and is a centrepoint for activities with an international flavour. It provides a space for students to meet, socialise, learn and attend events in a contemporary, unique and informal setting. The space is used by the majority of international students and many Irish students.



The Virtual Global Lounge

Enabling our student community to support each other socially and culturally during the COVID-19 situation is hugely important to us. So, the UCD Global Experience team has devised a schedule of virtual events through the Global Lounge for the coming weeks.

These events are designed to reflect the usual events that would take place in the on-campus Global Lounge. They will include virtual quizzes, yoga, guided meditation, movie nights, boardgames, discussions, chats and language cafés amongst others.

 Keep an eye on our social media pages for details of these events - and please join us virtually for some online socialising!


My favourite event in the Global Lounge was the Arab Society’s Coffee and Snack morning. We listened to Arabic pop music and sampled traditional coffee and homemade pistachio and hazelnut baklavas. I made a lot of friends at this event. I hope to see you in the Global Lounge soon!
