Societies are a key part of the college experience. 

The benefits are endless:

  • pursuing special interests
  • skills & leadership development opportunities
  • enhancing your CV
  • meet new people
  • a break from studying and
  • recognition rewards

are just a few that we can list off the tops of our heads!

Remember you can join a society at any time during the year for free on

If none of the existing societies are your cup of tea, don’t worry you can also start a new society. All you need is a good idea, great aims and objectives and fellow students to support your application. Contact Kaytee Behan ( for further information.

The TU Dublin Clubs, Societies and Volunteering Festival is all about meeting new people, learning about how to make the most your new life at university by getting active, getting involved, attending events, and joining our Clubs & Societies. The festival will be running from 19 - 27 September across all the TU Dublin campuses. There will be walking tours, art and crafts events, taster workshops, chats with the societies and many more.

Culture and craic that's what it's all about.

All the best and please get involved you won't regret it. Isn't the saying you regret the things you don't more that those you do.
