 Hope you’re well? My name is Jason Kavanagh and I’m your Student Union President for the year to come.  This is my first year on the union,  having been studying Marketing for the past 5 years. If you see me around don’t be afraid to say hello and stop me for a chat. Pop over to the  Student Union for a game of pool, to watch a DVD or just to chill. My doors always open and I’m here to help & remember no problems too big or  small.

We’ve been in all summer preparing for the year ahead and have planned a huge Fresher’s Week to kick it all off!  We have a big surprise, something that we’ve never done before! This will be the one of the best parts of your college experience. Enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to meeting you all in September

Hi there! My name is Isabelle Delaney Jones and I’m the new ITT Dublin Welfare Officer. I just finished International Hospitality and Tourism Management here in ITT and I loved it! My job entails looking after your wellbeing for the coming academic year as well as dealing with other topics such as, grants and crisis pregnancy- but mainly to be a friendly face. It might be a bit daunting starting college but my door is always open! My office is in the Student Union building so don’t be afraid to pop over for a chat and a cuppa. I can’t wait to meet you all in September! Take this time to enjoy yourself, you deserve it!!


They have been elected by the student population and would like to both congratulate and welcome all students into the Institute. They are available to you anytime and will deal with any problems or queries you may have. They are generally available Monday to Friday 10.00 to 17.00 hrs, but can be contacted outside these hours if needed.

The other elected part time officers cover areas such as two entertainment officers, internal and external, a clubs and societies officer and an equality officer. All seven officers are here for you the student.

Where is the Students Union?

The Students union is located in a purpose built complex behind the bicycle compound close to the pedestrian entrance to the institute. The office is open from Monday to Friday and anyone with any questions, queries, problems, complaints, or suggestions is welcome to visit at any time.

Remember; GET THE BALANCE RIGHT!! Get a good balance between study and play, Yes! Go out enjoy yourself, get involved in the Student Union events and also with the Clubs & Societies in the College BUT!!  Keep up with your Classes and CA’s do this and exam time will seem a doddle.

I  would like to wish you all the best of success and enjoyment this year in IT Tallaght.

What are the class representatives?

Every class will elect a class representative at the beginning of the year whose role is to work for the interests and needs of the students in their class. The class rep is the link between the class and the institute authorities, the lecturers, and the student union. Remember the class rep should not necessarily be the most popular person in the class rather the person that will represent the class the best.

Do students get involved in charity work or with the local community groups?

Yes, each year the student union makes a point of supporting both local and national charities.
