It is student owned, student led, student accountable and officially recognized by the Governing Body of TU Dublin as the autonomous voice of the students of the university. Its mission is to support student life by providing a range of student services including events and campaigns, providing advice & advocacy and representation in the defence of students’ rights in academic, social, and personal matters and is independent of TU Dublin.
