Each day is filled with events held by the different Clubs and Societies from Blanchardstown Campus, City Campus and Tallaght Campus. We’ve got a wide variety of Clubs and Societies (approx 150!) to suit any student so whether you just want to try something out for one semester or you’re a seasoned athlete, come and see what we have to offer. It’s still possible to join clubs and societies even if you didn’t manage to fit any in your busy schedule during the first semester so come along and give something a go!

Wednesday 6pm  Bingo Loco Presents: TU Dublin Virtual Refreshers’ House Party
Ever wanted to feature on a game show? Ever wanted to do so while competing against new friends for some amazing prizes?
  • Participants will be divided into team Zooms calls prior to the stream.
  • During the show, our host will drop into these calls to play some whacky games where teams can net themselves some points.
  • Other teams will be able to watch the fun unfold via the live YouTube stream.
  • There are many ways to earn points e.g. sending in photos/videos so teams are constantly engaging even when not directly talking to our host.
  • The team with the most points at the end of the show will move on to play the final jackpot round. Will they play it safe or risk it all to maximize their prizes?
