    ''Students who will receive examinations results after the Autumn examination boards may register one week after examination results become available.''

    Well done on getting through!

    I'm having registration problems too (not as bad as yours) - my plan is just to look up the Undergraduate Calender and see which modules I need to do, and look up the lecture times manually on timetable.ucc.ie, officially registering maybe later.


  • Registered Users Posts: 132 ✭✭Nervosa


    I'm really hungover and registering for the new term now is probably the worst decision I've ever made. I've never done something more difficult in my life with the exception of deciding what to eat earlier today.

    Why let me register for a module, and also tell me in a phone call that I pretty much have a place on the module, to then only email me back and say its been full since before reg opened?! God damn it UCC! :mad: Stop messing me about!

    /rant.

    Just saw that on Facebook! Wtf is up with that like? They better not have done the same thing with any of the other modules...there's no point in offering these modules to us if they've been unavailable since the start of September, especially since the earliest any Arts students could register was the 14th.:mad:

    This has created an image in my mind of me becoming power hungry and tasering drunk students at random. Sorry for thinking out loud. :P

    I got some Wednesday. A girl was handing them out at the gate on college road closest to the Student Common Room


  • Registered Users Posts: 42 Serbitar


    Use the vouchers up lads, buy one get one free is only for September. Buy two get one free for the rest of the year. There'll be a few pints of grolsch had this weekend anyway!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,557 ✭✭✭Knifey Spoony


    They've definitely gotten more strict about those vouchers then. I was stopped a couple of times last year from using them in Fred's so no surprise that they've upped it to 3 for 2.

    Quick question,

    My student card expired yesterday, will I still be able to log on to the computers in the library/campus? I have print credit and need to use it. My access to the library online is refuted so I'm leaning towards no.

    Might have a chance with logging on and printing from campus computers, but I doubt you'll get into the library


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,500 ✭✭✭ReacherCreature


    Cheers but I've found an alternative way to work around the whole printing issue.


  • Registered Users Posts: 866 ✭✭✭Palytoxin


    It's great to be back!

    What would be a good price for a secondhand book? I bought it last year for 70 and it's in excellent condition.

    55 euro if you bought it new.

    Check what it is selling for on amazon - would give you a good indication of price

    No reading room all semester either it seems :confused::( Tis crazy!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,443 ✭✭✭Byron85


    I'd imagine that's because it's only October folks. Expect the opening house to be extended around Christmas time and the again around March, just in time for the end of year exams and such.
