The SU is a democratic organisation run by students for students.
We have full autonomy from GMIT, so we are completely independent from the college. Every register student in GMIT is a member of the Students’ Union. We work for students in a wide variety of areas:
Representation – Represent students on all levels throughout the institute from class reps attending SU council and Programme boards to full-time sabbatical officers representing students on Governing Body and Academic Council. We also represent students at a national level with the Union of Students in Ireland (USI)
Education – We handle any academic issues students may face throughout their time in GMIT weather it involves problems with exams, lecturers or just sourcing grinds if we cannot help you we will find someone who can. Contact:
Welfare – The SU run welfare campaigns throughout the year to tackle issues linked to Mental, Sexual and Physical Health (plus many more) that students may face during their time of year. We also provide a confidential referral system where students can seek help for any issue they may be facing either inside or outside of college life.
Finance – The SU have a direct contact with SUSI so if you are having difficulties with your grant then get in contact for a straight answer. We also sit on the committee for the Student Assistant Fund (SAF)
Clubs & Societies – The SU run all clubs and societies throughout each campus.
Accommodation – Looking for accommodation? Have a look at the accommodation Section of our website. Having trouble with a house or landlord? We can act as a mediator between you and your landlord. We also have close ties with all student accommodation, the Private Residential Tenancies Board (PRTB) and Threshold, The national housing charity.
