Alumni Benefits – UCD Benefits

There are a range of benefits available to UCD Alumni including discounts on campus and special online resources.

If you have any queries, please contact our office on 01-716 1447 or email alumni@ucd.ie

Due to reduced staff numbers on site, the introduction of various new services to offset the challenges posed by COVID-19, the significant reduction in capacity of facilities due to social distancing restrictions, and current government restrictions, limitations may apply to a number of benefits and services. This includes restricted access to the UCD Libraries.
