Support Services in IT Blanchardstown

It is very important to enjoy your time with us at IT Blanchardstown in order to get the most out of your student experience. Having problems and not knowing who you can talk to can make college more challenging than it needs to be. Checkout our support services below so you have support and advice no matter what.

The Students’ Union is a representative body democratically elected by the student body each year, to provide representation and support for all students at both academic and non-academic level.  All students are automatically members of the union as we’re here for your benefit and to act on your behalf. Feel free to approach us at any time, about any issue. And, of course, the strength of any Students’ Union is dependent upon its membership, so please get involved as much as you can.

Drop into the S.U. Office, C114, at the top of the stairs in Block C.

Or if you have a worry or concern, please contact:
