Student societies strengthen the University's on-campus community and provide our students with opportunities to get to know students outside of their subject area. Of particular interest to students of our School may be:
- An Cumann Gaelach (The Irish Language Society)
- ESN (The Erasmus Student Network)
- ISS (The International Students Society)
- TradSoc (Traditional Music Society)

Our School has a dedicated Irish-language student common room, an Seomra Caidrimh. Students from all disciplines are welcome to visit this room, have a cup of tea or coffee and practise their Irish with other students - even if they only have a couple of words.
Students are welcome to organise Irish language events in the Seomra Caidrimh but we ask that you first contact the Director of the Teanglann Eimhear Ní Dhuinn firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure the Seomra Caidrimh is free.
The Seomra Caidrimh is located in B214 in the Newman Building.
Gaeltacht UCD promotes the Irish language and culture on campus and facilitates all students and staff who wish to engage with the language.
The following might be of particular interest to our students:
- language courses
- cultural workshops
- a scholarship residence scheme for students
- a summer school for the global Irish language community
The Global Lounge is located under the Main Restaurant on campus next to the International Office. All students are welcome in the Global Lounge and student events are held in the Lounge from time to time.
