Students Union

The IADT Students’ Union represents and supports all students. Elected representatives from each class form the Union Council. It has many functions and means different things to everyone: from representing the entire student body at an academic level, to arranging entertainment, cultural and sporting activities.

Get Involved

Getting involved in the SU is a great way to get to know people. Autonomous from IADT, the SU is affiliated with the Union of Students in Ireland (USI).

Among many, many things, the SU:

  • represents the interests and furthers the rights of its membership as a whole and individually. This takes the form of representation on committees that look at anything from teaching and learning to IADT’s governing body, as well as representing individuals in disciplinary or appeals procedures
  • offers advice on welfare, finances and education
  • organises awareness campaigns, and charity, entertainment and social events throughout the year including a Raise and Give (RAG) event that has become the envy of colleges around the country
  • manages The Chapel in the Quadrangle building as a recreational space
  • facilitates clubs and societies, ensuring students’ right to form or join a group to satisfy cultural, social, sporting and intellectual needs.

The Chapel
When it’s not kitted out for an exhibition or a function, The Chapel is a relaxed recreational space where you can print as well as buy stationery and art materials. The SU office has an open door policy, so drop in any time! You can discuss anything in confidence. Ask questions, get information, stock up on supplies or form a society.
