So far I can’t really complain about the college, a lot more problems come on the expenses end. Student accomodation is scarce and very expensive. UCD hasn’t helped the problem by building luxury accomodation as opposed to cost efficient, student accomodation.
The Blackrock Campus is fairly good, but could be better in terms of amenities. It feels way too "detached" and "distant" from the rest of UCD. The quality of education is good, but I wouldn't say "excellent" or "outstanding." The internet works on all my devices except my phone for some reason.
UCD does not care about you unless you are part of a top level sports team or a first class honours student. You will not receive the help you require when you need it. UCD will not go out of its way to help you. It’s profit-driven, they only want to help people that they think will promote UCD in a positive way. And then they have the neck to call us up a year later asking for alumni donations after raising charges campuswide including a >10% rise in rents in one year.
Overall a great institution, but is very improperly run. My final grades were withheld due to a mistake by the university, and when my grades were finally released there was one I wanted to have rechecked but it was not allowed because the time to recheck had passed. I have them evidence of the fact I had only just received my results and that the university was at fault, but they told me that they were sorry and offered no alternative or even support. They don't like to acknowledge that they make mistakes at the cost of their students, because they don't care about the students except for when they want their money.
The craic died in this college shortly after the boom, the home to culchies in Dublin and people with less self Centered egos than trinity students. The highlight of this college is it’s very own homeless man which can be found more easily than drink around campus
