    Yeah, got mine this morning. I have to email him to arrange an appointment to meet him though, which feels a little awkward...

    apparently if you have not completed registration and printed out a pre reg form, ( due to TCD's admin backlog ) you cannot pick up your ID or access anything re timetables etc.
    This could take 2 weeks to rectify....
    Give it til the end of Fresher's week I'd say. Your ID isn't really needed to get into any areas except the libraries & gym which you wouldn't really be using on Fresher's week.
    Also the timetables aren't all up yet so wouldn't worry about that. It's likely your discipline will give you timetables at your course orientation if this problem continues into next week.

    So if my Tutor has set aside availability times for me and I don't have to email them, do I just knock into them in their office during the set times to chat with them?

    It really depends on each tutor really. Generally most members of staff (and tutors in particular) are very friendly and keen to help out. You'll be fine just dropping in at said times.

    I would definitely recommend seeing your tutor. Odds are you're going to need them at least once and it's better to already know them when you're getting a problem sorted.

    do you have to go in every day for freshers ? i only have one optional thing on for tuesday, and id like to be resting my hangover if possible


  • Registered Users Posts: 91 ✭✭✭ EmmetOT


    For the most part, freshers is just fun stuff. I recommend going in, but you don't have to.

    You can always come in in the afternoon. :P

    Can anyone recommend a taxi company or something to get me back to my flat after freshers week, I know nothing about Dublin taxis :(

    If you mean after clubs/pubs then there's usually a lot of taxis around nearby. The only times we've ever had to call for a taxi was when we finished really late (like near 5 am) or if we were in some place outside the city centre.

    Dublin is covered in Taxi. You should have no problem finding them even in the suburbs. I avoid getting ones off the street as its often hard to track the driver if there is an issue. Call 018202020 its like a rank service, but the fare is reduced by 20%. Its handy if are outside the city and wont find a seven seater taxi easy. Hailo is pretty good too. If you download it and use the code dublin you get €5 off your first fare if you pay with card

    Does anyone know would it be possible to pick up your ID earlier than the day given to you or would they not give it to you?

    They normally don't allow it unless you have a valid reason (funeral/hospital/cannot by any means possible make it into College). I remember Erasmus students having trouble picking up their cards when I was in JF two years ago, they didn't land in Dublin until after their ID collection time and still had major issues picking up the cards.

    For continuing students it's fine to pick up ID cards at any time as pictures have already been taken and registration has been confirmed, but for new students it's a lot more complicated.

    I was supposed to pick up my card today but gave it a miss because, well, I came home for the weekend and didn't want to have to sleep on a couch in order to pick up a card. Oops.

    I was enrolled in the college before (4 years ago). If my original photo is still in the system I wonder if they can just use that instead of taking another.

    Been trying to make an appointment with my college tutor since last week, everytime I get talking to him, he says hes too busy and/or has to represent students for there appeals! I have been trying to contact him since Monday, I sent him numerous emails trying to arrange an appointment?

    Anyone had any experience with this or recommend what to do. Is it important to meet up with your college tutor?

    You don't have to meet them straight away, it's only recommended to meet them within the first two weeks of college. I met mine on Monday but it wasn't a very important thing tbh. He just explained his role as a tutor and asked a few questions about me and that was it.

    Don't worry if you can't meet them, it isn't really that necessary!

    Does anyone know where the stall for the gamers society is in parliment square? That's the final society I'd like to join but for the life of me I can't find them! Thanks! :)

    Most stalls rarely stay in the same location. Gamers are neighbours with SciFi this year, look for the large black and red wooden SciFi stand and then Gamers will be attached to it.

    While on the topic....I spent way too much on societies and want to cancel membership of a few...possible?


  • Registered Users Posts: 774 stealinhorses


    probably not, but you could try being awkward and ask


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,375 bri007


    cant see them giving you the money back,how much did you spend on them,most are 2euro


  • Registered Users Posts: 74 ✭✭ Pixie84


    lol I know it sounds stingy but it adds up. Will likely just leave it at that but at same time don't wanna be on any mailing lists or anything so is it best to contact them or are they fairly quiet anyway?
