International Student Support

The International Office has an innovative On-line Student Support and Service network for our International Students. We use web facilities to support you while you are here in DCU. We are available to advise students in person (at the International Office), by email or by phone. We will keep you udated of any necessary changes e.g., Immigration updates, by email, and keep you up-to-date with activities and events through our Facebook Page.

The International Office has a team of  International Student Advisors available from Monday to Friday, 9:30am to 5pm in the International Office, All Hallows Campus Drumcondra. We provide support for all international students, including advice on Visa requirements,during their time in Dublin City University. Our aim is to help make your time at DCU as rewarding and enjoyable as possible. International Staff are also available on the Glasnevin Campus in AG40, 9:30am to 5pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

International Student Advisors work in conjunction with other services offered by Student Support & Development, and with academic and administrative staff throughout the University. You can contact Student Support and Development colleagues in the Student Advice Centre, Henry Grattan Building opposite the main restaurant on the Glasnevin Campus, in relation to personal, social or practical issues, from simple requests for information to more confidential and serious matters.

 On-line Letter Request Service

There are a number of letters that you may need while you are here in DCU. You will need your student username and password to log into this facility. We offer the option to have the original letter scanned and emailed to you, to collect your letter in person at our collection point in The International Office, All Hallows Campus, or we will post the letter to you - however, there are certain restrictions in the method of receiving certain letters, i.e. Bank Letters must be posted and INIS letters must be collected in person.

Letter Post Service

Letters will be posted within 2 days of the request being received. If you wish to collect your letter you will need to bring your student card with you. Our post service will use the current address on your portal page, so please make sure you keep this updated.
