For a better experience living on campus.
Thank you to everyone who met with me in the common rooms in All Hallows and St Patrick's campuses last week.
I took some really useful feedback back to Campus Res and we have already made some changes and updates based on your comments.
It is a little more difficult to have similar catch ups in Glasnevin because you are all in apartments so I will come up with other ways to have catch ups in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please always feel free to pop by reception with any queries, concerns or comments, the door is always open.

The DCU SU have put so much into Mental Health Awareness Week.
We continue to be impressed by their initiatives on campus.
The "share the load" initiative included a public display of 124 backpacks, representing the average number of college students who die by suicide in Ireland each year. This was a very moving display and a powerful reminder of the senseless loss of young life.
I went to the talk given by Grace Mongey on living with and managing anxiety and depression. She discussed her experiences with searing honesty and a typically Irish sense of humour. Her overriding message was to find somebody to talk to.
What's coming up in Res Life?
