The one problem would be the lack of seating for people wanting to eat food. There’s no area where people can bring their own food to eat. You’re kicked out of the Buttery if you eat anything other than what they sell you. How is this fair? Not everyone can afford to pay for lunch everyday and that doesn’t mean they should be told to sit outside and eat it.
Standard of teaching is s*** as are support services, go to UCD, do yourself a favour
Trinity is fantastic, there’s a space for everyone to find their niche and I feel more at home here than I have anywhere in my whole life
I was deeply deeply unhappy the whole time I studied here. What is crazy to me is how good everything outside uni was going while studying there was absolutely miserable. Trinity was happy to hold me up as an example from a ‘disadvantaged area’ at an event in first year, but the support pretty much stopped there. The first two years were exhausting trying to pander to Trinity students who tend to be pretty well off and not very inclusive, and I found it very hard to make genuine friends. There was no full time professors in my department, just lecturers who come in for an hour or two a day other than that the building is empty. In first year I had ten hours a week, and the hours went down ever year so that in my final year I had just 5 hours a week plus a 10 minute zoom slot to talk about my portfolio. You might think I’m being pessimistic or dramatic, but I would genuinely implore you to explore other options and get opinions from other people before you choose Trinity.
I love Trinity campus, so many different places to sit down and relax after classes
The actual learning is really good and the social aspect is really good, but the current student union body is terrible i don’t understand how they were elected. The careers guidance, i don’t know if it’s just for my field, but it’s basically non existent, i’m finishing third year and have practically no idea of what my options are for when I finish. That’s something they could use a little more work with. I’m in stem, and all the lab facilities are really good. However, the administration in Trinity is literally so bad, a lot of important information my course found out was through people in the year ahead or from people in other courses. It needs a lot of improvement.
The faculty does little to nothing to help students with future careers, almost no courses have internships or placement included. Very poor method of teaching for the working world.
The university has lots of things to do and good amenities
Situated in the heart of Dublin, Trinity College has a rich history and terrific academic facilities.
I had a lot of expectations before coming here. I’m still hopeful
Grand grand, nice staff and tutors
I love going to college in Trinity, especially now since campus has opened back up. The facilities such as the libraries and the gym are great. The college also makes an effort to ensure students have help for whatever they need, and know who they can ask for help whenever.
I have enjoyed my time studying in the school of English at Trinity.
Great campus and facilities, the online systems could do with a major update.
Handled covid absolutely awfully
UCD is the best university I've been studying in so far.
Amazing old style campus and events being tuny
Even though my first year at this university was changed a lot with COVID, I enjoyed my experience thoroughly knowing the staff and my peers were supportive and welcoming.
Trinity is such a wonderful campus and atmosphere. Even in COVID times, it was so nice to just be there. The staff in my program could not have been better and more understanding during these troubling times.
Pretty satisfied overall. The campus is beautiful.
The location of Trinity's college campus provides the perfect flavour to academic & student life - situated right in the heart centre provides a unique experience between a city & campus life that has been hard to beat!
Great experience and learning altogether with great modules and lecturers. Student union, careers service and scholarship structures could be improved.
Great experience overall. Interesting and fun students.
Superb University, assists students to seek knowledge and complete their work particularly in regard to the current pandemic environment
I like trinity, but sometimes it focuses a little more on tourism than students.
I love Trinity, haven’t been able to have the full experience this year because of COVID, yet the teaching is very good.
Overall a very good university experience.
It was a great experience even under current circumstances
I have really enjoyed my time at Trinity College
Lovely campus located in a nice part of Dublin
Never attended a lot in person classes due to the pandemic since everything was switched to online. But overall a good experience.
Trinity is great all round great location
After five years in Trinity I 100% recommend you enjoy it. Take part in as many clubs/societies as possible, which are fantastic and make the most of it.
Great college in a great location and just generally a fantastic place to be
Trinity College offers such a unique college experience and I'm so glad I've been able to complete my studies here!
Campus facilities are dated, staff care little about education but love to research irrelevant topics. Clubs are pretentious and full of rich southside kids who compare their dads jobs. Student union is the same, rich southside socialites with too much time on their hands. I got 0 careers help at any stage from the college. Nobody once spoke about the relevance of what I was studying to work... And I studied engineering. Wifi is the best thing about the college.
Experience of a science & health science faculty student. Campus/Facilities 2/5, lack of student space in the science side of campus for eating, studying, printing facilities were often out of order, computer room spaces were insufficient. Clubs and societies 3/5, there was a huge array of clubs and societies that would put on plenty of events all year. Students Union 3/5, often disengaged from SU likely due to distance, SU and faculty miscommunications leading to disruption of student services occurring during my time. Careers service 3/5, the careers service is excellent, the guidance councilors especially so, however, their services could be better funded to allow students more time with councilors/other services. Internet/Wifi 4/5, Wifi's fine . Not described above: College Health Services is extremely overbooked, getting appointments could take a month, but the staff working there are very nice. College mental health/counseling service is heavily underfunded
Best in Ireland, only begrudged by people who didn’t get in
Underfunded music department, no soundproofing or proper practice facilities, poor choice of modules, the odd bad lecturer, cash grabbing administration who are terrible at actually helping students and consistently put the universities status as a tourist destination above its duties to current students.
For a college known to be prestigious, it really doesnt invest in its students or their facilities. Some buildings are so old and nothing is done about them. If only they used the money they got from the book of kells to improve facilities.
The societies are the best things about Trinity College Dublin. Each society has great facilities and the work ethic of the committee are incredible. On the campus I feel the college needs more areas for sitting down and reading that is not the library. There is a lack of “hang out” places for people who are not in a society and the quality of the ones that are already there is lacking. The gym could be bigger and the WiFi never worked for me once in my four years there. I would of liked more help in the career service and I did not get much. Trinity is an amazing place however in terms of it’s historical campus ground and the atmosphere within the walls of the college is always so vibrant and exciting. I love this university a lot.
A great college for some courses, some others.... not so much. Really caters to the fun life of arts degrees and s**** on those in medical school or more difficult degrees.
Sure the only problem is that most people aren't from South Dublin. Where are all my Rock boys at?
Its a lovely campus, and has many great facilities. Although eduroam never works for students, and the Students’ Union didn’t provide much support for movements such as the no detriment exam policy. The SU have shops on campus which is great though. Student goods at discounted prices and the Tcard. I haven’t been interacting with the careers service that much but they’re alright. Clubs and Societies are great, just needs a lot more funding
