Hi everyone!
My name is Lee Bennett and I’m the Vice President for Education in your Student Union. I’ve recently completed my
four-year degree in Business Marketing Management. My role in the SU is to represent the ITT students, specifically on an academic basis. As an Education Officer you can come to me about queries such as the SUSI grant, course problems, the bookshop, exams and even general questions about your student experience. I will be working closely with your class reps to understand any problems you are facing in your course and try my best to solve any issues. I will be running education campaigns throughout the year so keep a look out! Amy, Megan and myself have exciting plans for the upcoming year and are looking forward to meeting you all in September. My office is over in the Student Union building so whenever you need to chat just pop in.

Hi everyone!
My name is Megan O'Neill and I am the Vice President for Welfare and Equality for the Student union here at IT Tallaght. I have just completed my four-year degree in Marketing Management which I really enjoyed! My role in the
Union for the upcoming year will be to offer advice and guidance on things such as mental and physical health,
accommodation, grants, campaigns, which I would love you all to get involved with and most importantly to just be
there for a chat if you need anything! Make sure to pop over my door is always open.
I am looking forward to meeting you all throughout the year, it’s going to be an exciting one!

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.
