Welcome

Our nurses Orlagh and Michelle, warmly welcome all registered students of TU Dublin Tallaght. Wishing you a healthy, successful and happy year here in Tallaght, please don’t hesitate to contact us, with any concerns you may have.

The Service is envisaged as an addition to the student’s own family GP or specialist medical service. It operates within resource constraints so certain service limitations apply. We offer a professional health care to all registered students of the Institute. Encouraging a pro-active approach to health, the emphasis on Health Awareness and Promotion for the student population.

The Student Health Centre aims to:

  • Continue to provide medical services to registered students in a confidential, professional and courteous manner.
  • Continue to provide a high quality, timely and reliable service to students.
  • Adapt to other ways of delivering care, by the provision of secure remote consultations via telephone and/or video, where face to face may not be necessary or pose a possible risk to staff.

*****Temporarily stop walk-in clinics and move to appointments only.

All initial consultations will be via phone call.
Encourage our students to contact the Student Health Centre by telephone if they have any health concerns whether Covid-19 related or not.
