UCD has been an amazing college with several opportunities around for student. There are a lot of student support and advice available so you never feel alone. There are several clubs and societies to join that cater to any niche interests you might have, these societies are great for finding a community of like minded people in the college.

Overall a good university where you are given a well-balanced experience with good academics and social life. As a research heavy university you get good exposure and opportunity in research alongside with connecting with lecturers who do research in their specific fields. Also, the facilities are really good allowing you to be on top of your health and sports. There is also a wide variety and range of societies and clubs which allow you to pursue your hobbies while also allowing you to delve into new experiences.

UCD is great because everything you need is on campus, you never have to leave! In saying that there’s great links into the city when you’re ready to explore. There’s great supports for students and the teaching is high standard, there’s a club for everyone and these are always well advertised so you can find them.

Studying at UCD is a pleasure. The staff are professional and experienced, the SU are very engaged in student life and problems raised by the student body, and the facilities are state of the art - especially the science building and the newly renovated level of the James Joyce library, making studying even more enjoyable.

UCD is like a small village, it fosters a sense of community within the campus. It has state of the art facilities and continues to grow. Walking around the campus makes you feel as though you're in a movie with the buzz of students. The are also many coffee carts that provide the best coffee!! It's also a dog friendly campus so no doubt you'll encounter some fury friends.

UCD is a great school with a huge international student population. It is very easy to make friends if youre not from Ireland and has great clubs and societies. Also the reslife program is very fun to get to know Residential assitants and other residents on campus. It is easily walkable and has so many good eating spots. I personally love Poolside Cafe and the ClubHouse. Additionally, there is a plethora of programs to choose from for your studies at UCD.

It’s really difficult to access some of the facilities such as the gyms and they require extra money for the swimming pool. students union should try harder. This site is amazing I haven’t been any club unfortunately during my two years period there. The careers service are basically inexistent since they do such a good job. Really comes to Internet connection is repeatedly stopped in the law school this year for no reason.

I had the time of my life in UCD. I often look back and realise what how good life was while on campus. The atmosphere and facilities were fantastic, and the staff were all incredibly helpful and caring at every step of my college journey.

SU useless, WiFi not strong enough for calls/videocalls, unreasonable expensive for food, facilities use and rents (1200 euros/month for a room are you crazy). Reception of the residences unprofessional - they stole money from me and didn't know how the common areas work! I didn't find the modules interesting and difficult enough for a university. The health care unit is useless (they're not doctors! I broke a finger at 9pm and I had to wait until the next afternoon to get a visit at the health centre and the doctor didn't even look at the finger, i paid 30 euros just for an x-ray prescription).

I hated UCD in first year, I really do mean hate. I became depressed from the loneliness and sense of being constantly lost. I had a nervous breakdown during the summer exams, after the stress from the year finally reached breaking point. I had never experienced mental health issues to this extent. I’m not sure if it was a lack of support for incoming first years on UCD’s part or my own fault. However, I always say I’m grateful I don’t have to do first year there ever again. Things improved in second year as I got a part time job I really loved (ie not much changed on UCD’s part), finally in third year we were split into smaller classes and things improved dramatically, with much more student-lecturer contact and interaction. Covid hit in my second semester of third year, but I do think most lecturers went above and beyond to help us (science, medicine and biomed students) during this time. Fourth year was obviously all during covid, but again I think lecturers really were supportive.

Best choice in university for me. Amazing course, amazing people, amazing campus. The SU does a lot of great work and the societies are phenomenal, and I’m proud to be an active member of both.

I was a UCD student during the 2020-2021 academic year, coming from a foreign country. The experience was really devastating, before starting the master's degree the representative told me by email that the education would be blended and unfortunately what I believed was a lie. The university did not offer any opportunity to interact with other students or to go to class, although they promised otherwise before making the payments. The university uses marketing campaigns in which they show themselves as a university that cares about integrating foreign students, which in my experience was totally false, despite the fact that I sent them emails asking for solutions and help. So my experience of starting from 0 in a new country without being able to relate to anyone was a challenge for my mental health. After graduation the only ones who got jobs related to studies were Irish and native English students. So I do not recommend non-native English speakers to study at UCD.

Despite having well over 30 thousand students, UCD takes the time to make you feel valued and appreciated. I feel like I'm getting top class education and creating my future here in UCD.

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
