" It is a good place to study it has a great environment with lots of young people. It has good events to attend. It would be better if they had a better gym for weightlifting as the one they have gets really busy. "

" Great college overall, met some really good people here and feel like i made the right choice studying here. The staff are in general really helpful and understanding with only a very few outlying situations where this wasn’t the case. There’s a really nice sense of community when you get involved in the social scene, which is quite easy to do given how nice and open the vast majority of the students are. As far as campus facilities go I can’t really comment because i don’t make use of them all that often, but the gym and the pool seem really nice and the library is actually super for getting work done. Accommodation could be better, for example more affordable and the lack of ovens in a lot of residences is kinda inconvenient, but apart from that, i don’t have many complaints. Chicken fillet roll prices could be better too but nothing’s perfect i guess. Overall i’d highly recommend UCD to anybody looking to complete 3rd level education in Dublin "

" my years at UCD have been some of the best of my life. While the insane prices of rent and general living in dublin were definitely a challenge, and the mental health support services could do with improvement, I found a lovely community through my course, clubs and societies and my lecturers were incredibly supportive.
