Wait, I’ve heard of these free condoms! Where do I get them?

The free condoms are available from the Welfare Officer, but all the Sabbatical Officers usually have a few handy. There’s also a big bowl o’ condoms in the Student Kitchen, which you can find on the first floor of Mandela House, commonly known as House 6.

Where’s House 6?

You can find it just to the left of Front Arch when you’re coming in to college – it’s home to the SU offices, as well as the CSC (Central Societies Committee) and some society rooms, like LitSoc, QSoc the LGBT Society, and DU Dance.

And what’s a Sabbatical Officer?

A Sabbatical Officer is one of the five elected representatives of students – there’s the President, the Education Officer, the Welfare & Equality Officer, the Communications & Marketing Officer, and the Ents Officer, all of whom you can find a little bit more about by clicking on the ‘Officers’ tab on this website!

I want to book a room – how do I do that?

If you want to book a room, just head on over to the Enquiries Office, and talk to the guys in there! You can find it just beside the Exam Hall, which is located in Front Square. You’ll need your student card to do so!

I’m having some academic issues – what do I do?

No matter what it is, for academic issues you should get in touch with the Education Officer. You can find their details here. You should also get in touch with your tutor, who’ll be able to help you out a little. You can find information about who your tutor is and their contact details on your my.tcd.ie portal.

I’m running out of money, what can I do?

The SU provides welfare loans of up to €300. The only stipulation is that you have to pay them back before you graduate college – the Welfare Officer and President can hand them out, so if you’re having money problems, get in touch with them.

I failed an exam – what’s the next step?

You have plenty of options when it comes to this. First and foremost, get in touch with your tutor – they represent you in academic affairs, and they’re the first port of call for anything exam related. You can appeal the results of an exam, sit the supplementals in late summer, or defer your exams until another year as well. There are lots of options – remember that we all fail an exam at some point, and it’s by no means the end of the world!

If I’m sick, or can’t attend an exam, what do I do?

Again, tell your tutor, especially if you’re sick in the weeks coming up to an exam. There are cases where you may be able to sit the exam another time – your tutor and the Education Officer will be able to tell you more.

I wanna include something in the weekly email. What do I do?

If you have something you want to advertise, like a deal for students or a job opening you’ve heard about, get in touch with the Communications & Marketing Officer on communications@tcdsu.org.

I have something I want to bring to Council – how do I do that?

If you have a motion or a discussion item you’d like to bring to Council, the call for submissions opens the week before the Council takes place – you can find Council dates in your SU diary. Get in touch with the Chair of Council or the Secretary on chair@tcdsu.org or secretary@tcdsu.org, and they’ll be able to tell you more.

I need an extension on my essay - what do I do?

First and foremost, if you want an extension, you need to contact your tutor. They’ll act on your behalf as a liaison between your course and your lecturer. Secondly, get in touch with your course heard - this is important, as they’re the only ones who can green light an essay extension. Finally, if you find yourself struggling with an essay, and it’s having a negative affect on your health, get in touch with your S2S peer mentor, the Counselling Service, or the Welfare Officer.

How do I change my tutor?

To change your tutor, the best thing to do is go to the Senior Tutor, with your reasons prepared, and ask for a change.

I don’t have enough time to complete my assignment - what do I do?

Contact your tutor and the lecturer in charge of the module - they’ll be able to assist you with getting a deadline extended.

I’m going to miss a compulsory tutorial/lab - what do I do?

If you’re going to miss a compulsory tutorial or lab, the first port of call is your course handbook - many courses have a number of them you can miss without incurring a penalty. If you have already reached the quota of tutorials/labs you have missed, contact your tutor and talk about your options. Also, always contact the lecturer of the class you’re missing - it’s polite to do so.

What are the library hours?

ou can find the hours for the library on their website - www.tcd.ie/library

I have two exams on the same day - what can I do?

There’s little that can be done about changing an exam once it’s scheduled - the college have over 1,500 exams to schedule during the exam period, and it’s unfortunate when two are put on the same day. However, contact your class rep and the Education Officer, and they will advocate on your behalf to try and change it, and ensure it doesn’t happen again.

I need a separate exam venue - what can I do?

Grounds are needed if you wish to avail of a separate exam venue - you’ll often be asked for a certificate from the Counselling Service, Health Service or Disability Service. Contact your tutor well in advance of the exams so they can organise this for you - there’s nothing they can do if they don’t have the time.

Note: mental health very much counts as a reason for an exam venue!
