These agreements enable student and staff exchanges, similar to the Erasmus scheme, and facilitate joint research initiatives. A comprehensive list is available on our website.


Students’ Union


The Students’ Union (SU) is an independent and democratic representative organisation run by the students for students. It protects your interests and has representation on the Governing Body, Academic Council and Programme Boards of the Institute. It operates a Newsagents/Stationery Shop, Fitness Centre, Common Room and Coffee Dock and also an Information Office that provide services such as photocopying and binding, lockers, postal facilities and general information. The SU also organises all recreational activities and on-campus entertainment.


The Union comprises a President, a Vice-President/Welfare Officer and a President of the Castlebar Campus who are elected annually by the student body. They are assisted by part-time executive officers and class representatives who meet on a monthly basis. The union officers are supported by a general manager, an activities co-ordinator, a communications executive and an administrative assistant.


A Student Guide and Welfare booklet is available from the SU office giving details on all aspects of student life. For further information please log on to www.gmitsu.ie


Extra-curricular activities at GMIT


The Students’ Union supports and funds all student clubs, societies and activities within GMIT. All clubs and societies are entirely run by students for students.


Extra-curricular activities provide students with invaluable opportunities to meet others and develop new interests. No matter where your interests lie, you are bound to meet someone here who shares them. Whichever way you like to fill your spare time, there will be a club, society or activity on campus for you. And if there isn’t, you can start your own with our help.

Clubs, Sports and Activities


If you are interested in competing at inter-colleges level, there is a team for almost every sport at GMIT. We provide archery, basketball, cycling, Gaelic games, karate, kayaking, rugby, soccer, volleyball and windsurfing to name but a few.


If you are interested in being active, but entering into competition doesn't appeal to you, or if you just want to have some fun, why not participate in some of our non-competitive clubs such as badminton, diving, equestrian, indoor soccer and table-tennis.
