GMIT practicalities

Student ID Card

You will be issued with a GMIT student ID card when you start college, provided you have already registered online.  This card contains your ID number and photographic image.  It is used as official identification for exams, access to the library and when requesting letters, forms, etc.  The cost of a replacement student ID card is €10.

The photographic image taken when a student ID card is being produced is for identification purposes and is attached to your IT account i.e. email, moodle, etc.  You are permitted to remove the photographic image from your IT account if you wish.


IT Systems  

As a registered student you will have access to free wifi and use of computers at all GMIT campuses, and acess to free wifi in other colleges throughout Europe via eduroam.  Once you have registered online you will receive your IT password by text. Your student email address will be e.g. You are expected to regularly check your account, as important e-mails about exams (schedules, results etc.) are sent to student email addresses.

Your voice

Your voice is important.  We want to hear what you have to say because this helps improve our service to you and to future students.  Each year, students who have been elected as Class Representatives have the opportunity to represent their class at programme board meetings. You will also be asked for feedback on modules and courses each year.

If you have issues or concerns about anything at all, don't dwell on it. Take action and have a chat with one of your lecturers, a course tutor, the Head of Department, or any member of staff you feel comfortable talking to.

We are all here to help YOU!
