Student Life

Life outside the classroom is an important part of a Maynooth Education and you can learn plenty by challenging yourself against your peers on the sports field or the gaming table. We have presentations and videos below for you to see what’s available.

Clubs and Societies are already preparing for the return to university life later this month as we respond to the ongoing developments of COVID 19. This means planning for online events as well as planning for the return to campus in whatever sized groups are appropriate. Your safety, the safety of our staff and the public will be paramount in this.

Our sports clubs will also be taking direction on their return to training and competition from their respective National Governing Bodies.

MSU – Maynooth Student’s Union

The MSU Student Centre is a whole building dedicated to you- the student! You will find the Your Space Common Room, SU Bar, and SU Venue here along with a host of services just for you in our Front Office. We also run several services that enhance the student experience including an entertainment programme, meeting rooms for student groups, and a student-friendly shop (Londis) in the John Hume Building.

MSU will be hosting a schedule of activities that will look to welcome you to Maynooth. ‘MSU Welcome 2020′ will help you get to know the campus before you arrive and provide you with the information and support you need to settle in on campus. Come and find out what we’re about and how you can join.

“My participation with the Union was the highlight of my college experience. Last year I was President of a Society. This allowed me to get elected as a voice for societies on our Student Senate, which in turn inspired me to run to be MSU President. “

Kelly Rennick, MSU President 2020/21
