Support Services in NUIM

It is very important to enjoy your time with us at NUIM 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.

The students’ union offers a great one-stop-shop for information and representation. If you’re not sure what service you need or even where to go then the SU is a great place to start. Not to mention that there’s always someone there to have a chat with.
