Book your class party through the Entertainments Office Monday – Friday. Class Parties are a great way of getting to know your classmates in a more relaxed environment. We are here to help you get the best deals on all fronts whether it’s going to the pub or going paint-balling etc., and to help you and your classmates organise the best social events possible.
Common Room - Student Centre
Pool tables are available for use in the common room to give you time to relax during what are sure to be hectic days. Cues are available from the SU Office. Your student ID is required. There is also an Xbox 360 station in the common room, controls and various games are also available from the Students’ Union Office. A refundable security deposit of €5 is taken as well as your student ID card each time you take out the Xbox. There is a time limit of thirty minutes for the Xbox as demand is very high. Remember if you don’t bring the Xbox back in time you will lose your deposit. CCTV is installed in the Common Room to help ensure respect and safety in the common room which is for the use of all students.
Union Club Nights
Come along to our night time events to meet your classmates and friends outside the academic environment, we guarantee a fun night and an admission fee that won’t hurt your pocket. Watch out for posters and flyers detailing venues and dates. This year the Students’ Union will run regular nights, twice a week. Keep an eye out for posters and our facebook page.
Rag Week – Student Centre
Rag (Raise And Give) Week is a week dedicated to collecting as much money as possible for charity through entertainment events both on and off college. Rag Week is the highlight of the college calendar and over the last number of years considerable funds have been raised for worthy charities. All day-time entertainment is free of charge although buckets are passed around to raise a ‘few euro’ during Raise and Give Week. Night-time events are a social calendar must with the added benefit of contributing towards a number of worthy causes while enjoying yourself.
Where can I buy tickets for CIT SU events?
Generally you get them in the Students’ Union office or from the SU stand in the main corridor. If there are tickets left for a particular event they may be made available on the door on the night but this is not guaranteed.
Do I need to bring my student card to CIT SU events?
You should carry your CIT Student Card with you to SU events. This is so that you can identify yourself as a CIT student in a variety of possible situations, which may arise. It is necessary by law to bring a valid age ID card eg. Garda Age card or passport as the majority of off campus events are over 18s.
Will you be there?
Yes we’ll be there. A representative from CIT SU will be present at all large CIT SU organised events, barring any unforeseen eventualities. This is to ensure the smooth running of the event and liaise with the venue and the acts as well as to be available to you, should you need to speak to us.
Do you need any help with Entertainments?
WE WANT YOU... We would always love your help with events especially during Freshers and Rag Weeks where we will need various promotional and sales persons. You could also help out in the running of our weekly events as part of our promotion team. Rewards (not that you want rewards) include various tickets, freebies etc.
Is it possible for me to bring my boyfriend/girlfriend/friend to a CIT SU gig, even though they’re not in CIT?
You sure can. As long as they have a ticket and / or are willing to pay on the door if there’s space in the venue, it’s all good. They are, of course, subject to the same admission criteria as anyone else, but they will not be refused entry solely on the basis that they are not CIT students.
Why wouldn’t the bouncer let me into the CIT SU gig last night?
Okay…we don’t know! When we hire a venue in the city to run an event, the venue always retains the right of admission (that’s what R.O.A.R. means on tickets and posters etc). We cannot overrule the door staff and we cannot get involved in any disagreement between students and door staff. If you do still feel aggrieved the day after, please come and talk to one of the Union Officers.
