If you want the traditional American college experience relating to Athletics, you should probably consider a traditional American college. There are certainly sports available at Trinity if you want to pursue them but they're not central to the culture of the school nor do you even really notice them on a daily basis. The athletics facilities are quite new and seem (based upon my *very* limited experience with them) modern, clean, etc... and easy to use. They're also relatively inexpensive compared to a monthly gym membership or even other Dublin colleges like UCD. Returning to sports though, if you want to participate in them, you do so through clubs and societies. Thus, you sign up for rugby club if you want to play rugby or the Hockey club if you want to play hockey. From what I know of these clubs, some of them are thinly veiled drinking societies especially in the lower quality teams whereas others are quite competitive.

There's ample nightlife if you want to participate in it. There are people who seem to be going out everynight of the week which could be a byproduct of being freshers new to the college experience but also, it's Ireland so the culture certainly lends itself to hard clubbing and nights on the town. They' don't say "party like you're Irish" for nothing. I personally don't enjoy these events and while it's a little awkward to stay in my dorm room, I haven't felt any open or guarded condescension for making the choice to stay in. Just be upfront and non-judgmental

I havn't found any clear enforcement relating to drug safety. In the Freshman dorms, I suppose if you complained to Reception they might come to investigate but I sincerely doubt anyone would or will... That being said, I haven't personally felt any pressure to participate in drugs and mostly it appears to be light pot smoking

You're in the center of Dublin which means that you have more than enough options in terms of whatever you care to eat. Food is certainly not cheap here especially compared to the US and you're far more aware of spending money without a faceless meal plan but there are excellent, organic, nutritious, locally sourced, etc... restaurants around if you so desire. On campus there are a couple cafes and dining halls that offer food which (I believe) is subsidized by the school. The options are usually limited and it's not always cheaper than eating outside Trinity's walls. I personally try to bring a lunch

The drinking age is 18. Prepare to party because Dublin is wild at night. No matter what type of music you like there is a club for it, and on nights that you aren't going hard there are hundreds of pubs full of funny Irishmen making fun of unsuspecting tourists.

There is no meal plan at Trinity. Get ready to learn to cook. There are a few restaurants on campus but they are so-so. However if you are on campus and you are looking to get good food, remember, your in the center of Dublin. There is plenty of options if your willing to pay for it.

The computer labs on campus are abundant and well taken care of. However, if you are staying in Trinity Hall, which if you are an international student you most likely will be for first year, there is no Wifi. Something to do with the thick concrete walls, which means that you will need to buy a cable to connect to their obnoxious server, as well as download their antivirus and fiddle with your internet settings. there is plenty of Wifi on campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
