The Griffith College Students' Union and Student Activities team are on hand to help you enjoy the social side of college. Whether that's through sports, clubs, societies or group social events, there is something for everyone studying at Griffith College.
The Griffith College Students’ Union is an independent body that was elected by the students. A students' union serves as the representative voice for the student body, advocating for your needs and concerns. They also organise events, activities, and services that enhance your college life, fostering a sense of community and engagement on campus.
Our Students' Union organises a wide range of student events throughout the year. These are a great way to get acquainted with College life and get to know other students.
Griffith College Students’ Union is the representative body for all Griffith College students and is based on the South Circular Road (SCR) campus.
The purpose of your students’ union is to represent students both within the institution and externally, including on local and national issues. Your students' union is also responsible for providing a variety of services to students.

A wide range of sports are on offer to get involved in, some of the sports include; Basketball, Cricket, Football, Volleyball, Badminton and much more. During the year, there will be training and competitions against other third-level institutions.
As well as competing, there is also a huge social aspect to the sports teams, which can really enhance your time here at Griffith College.
For the adventure element, they arrange trips, some involve getting active and others are focused on experiencing and seeing Ireland. There are a selection of day and weekend trips, as well as smaller day and weekend activities to ensure there is always something to get involved in.
