UCD Orientation Week will run from 22 - 25 September 2020.
Check out the UCD Orientation 2020 page for all of the information you'll need to know about Orientation activities.
UCD Global will also be coordinating a series of social and cultural events for new international students throughout the month of September.

A Certificate of Attendance verifies the years you were/are registered at UCD. It states your name, programme title, registration status and stage.
Please note that there is no longer a printer available in the Student Desk to print your certificate of attendance. All self-service UCard printers on campus remain operational, subject to building access restrictions. For support, printing supplies (paper / toner / staples) or to report machine faults, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
All students can access their Certificate of Attendance online via SISWeb. The Certificate of Attendance that you can access via SISWeb is accepted by all Irish banks and most other institutions in Ireland, Europe and the rest of the world.
To access your Certificate of Attendance follow the steps below:
- Log into SISWeb
- Go to the Registration, Fees and Assessment tab
- My Official Documents
- Electronic Documents
Documents from SISWeb can be verified by a third party through UCD's online verification system. Before you give your Certificate of Attendance from SISWeb to any third party, ensure that you enable the document by clicking the enable access button as this will allow the verification process to work properly.
Online via SISWeb: this is the easiest and fastest way to pay your fees. To make a payment with a credit/debit card on SISWeb, log in and navigate to Registration, Fees and Assessment > Programme Fees and Payment. Enter the amount that you would like to pay in the "make payment" field. Please note that there is a limit of €1,500 per transaction when making a payment on SISWeb.
You can make a bank transfer using the UCD bank account details listed below:
UCD Fees Account,
Bank of Ireland,
College Green, Dublin 2. Ireland.
IBAN : IE82 BOFI 9000 1720 6115 11
Swift Code/BIC: BOFI IE 2D
If you make a payment via bank Transfer, please ensure that you enter your UCD student number as the reference as this will allow us to allocate the money to your account.
Third party Payment Portal
If a third party such as a parent, family member or employer is going to pay your fees, they can make an online payment with a debit/credit card through the online payment portal.
Please note in order to complete the payment, the third party must enter the student's student number and date of birth.
Pay to Study
If you are a Non-EU student paying fees from abroad you can use the PayToStudy facility to pay your fees to UCD. This is very useful if you need a receipt for visa or travel purposes as you receive your confirmation/receipt of payment immediately. To make a payment via PayToStudy, please click here
There are 3 steps to getting your student card:
1. Upload photo. Go to SISWeb > My Profile > Upload Photo. Photo size must be 50KB or smaller.
2. Confirm your registration. Go to SISWeb > My Registration and click Confirm. If you are not given the option to confirm, Ask Us, and we can help you.
3. When steps 1 & 2 are completed collect your card from the UCard Bureau. First year undergraduates will be allocated a time during orientation week for UCard collection. Check your orientation timetable for more details. If you can’t collect your card in person, contact the UCard Bureau to arrange for it to be posted to you.
Check out the Student UCard page for more info.
The Student Leap Card is also available from UCD Students' Union Reception located in the Old Student Centre near Astra Hall. Opening Hours are as follows: Monday - Friday: 11am - 4pm
We can stamp a wide variety of forms. Some of the most common forms that we're asked to stamp are:
- Child Benefit forms
- Job Seekers forms
- Medical Card Application
- Student Travel Card (if you need us to stamp your application for a student travel card, please download the application form at www.studenttravelcard.ie and remember to bring 2 passport photos with you)
- J1 forms
If the form that needs to be stamped is simply to confirm your attendance/enrollment in UCD, in many cases you can submit your SISWeb Certificate of Attendance in lieu of getting the form stamped. If you can't use your Certificate of Attendance in lieu of the form you need stamped, the best way to submit the form is through the Student Desk Connector.
UCD stamp all forms digitally, so no need to even come in to the Student Desk. Please Submit forms via the Student Desk Connector. When asked What is the nature of your query select I would like to submit documentation (form stamping, grant letter) and attach the form that you need us to complete/stamp. Before sending us a form to complete, please ensure that you have filled in all of the sections which require your personal details.
To log into SISWeb, you will be asked to enter your username and password.
Your username is your UCD student number. If you can not remember your student number, please contact the Student Desk and we will be happy to find it for you. In order to help us locate your student number, please confirm your date of birth and the course that you studied while you were here.
If you have never changed your password it will be your 6 digit date of birth in the format DDMMYY. If you are not able to log into SISWeb using your 6 digit date of birth as your password, Ask Us and we can help.
If you have never changed your password, it will be your 6 digit date of birth in the format DDMMYY.
However, for security reasons you will be required to eventually change this password. You can log into SISWeb 20 times using your 6 digit date of birth as your password after which it will expire and you myst create a new one. Current students can reset their password at any time by using the UCD Password Self Service tool.
If you wish to discuss any issues in relation to your studies or you have any additional concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your Student Adviser. Every academic programme in UCD has a dedicated Student Adviser who offers students time and space to explore issues of concern to them through out your time at UCD. Student Advisers work closely with academic and administrative staff as well as with the other student support staff to ensure that each student’s experience at UCD is as fulfilling and enjoyable as possible.
