About Us

TCDSU represents every student in Trinity College Dublin and since 1968, it has united our voices around issues of learning conditions, discrimination, classism and inequality.

Every Trinity student is automatically a member. If you'd like to get involved, run for a Class Rep position in September 2023 and keep an eye on your weekly email for details on upcoming campaigns or Trinity Ents events.
