The Committee meets quarterly with meetings generally held on campus at lunchtime. In addition to these meetings, MENU organise informal get-togethers to celebrate cultural events in UCD, as well as regular coffee mornings.

Since the COVID-19 restrictions were introduced in March 2020, MENU Committee meet on Zoom as required to discuss upcoming initiatives and all coffee mornings are virtual.
