It’s that time of year again, the beginning of the academic calendar at NUI Galway! To all new students beginning their time here, you are very welcome! And to those of you returning for another year, we’re glad you came back to join us!
For all new students, and returning students for that matter, I want to tell you about The Hub. The Hub is your student common room, perfect for meeting up with friends, a place to enjoy a cuppa between lectures, or cook a bit of food for yourself. I mentioned there was a fully kitted out kitchen for students to use throughout the day, right?? The kitchen has got everything you need to reheat yesterdays leftovers, whip up your signature dish from scratch, or simply cook a frozen pizza from Tesco! There are also 2 additional microwaves located within The Hub itself.
There is a supply of tea and biscuits available in the kitchen, we only ask that you clean up after yourself, wash your cups, and don’t go overboard on the biscuits, a pretty fair deal I’m sure you’ll agree! We have a little donation box left on the kitchen counter to help us pay for supplies of milk, biscuits etc. so anything you can give is greatly appreciated.
We also have a games cupboard, with a nice selection of both board and card games for your enjoyment. If you want to borrow one, simply bring your Student ID and ask a member of the WELL Crew, who would be more than happy to oblige! We are a friendly bunch here in The Hub, and our goal is to create a relaxed, welcoming environment in YOUR common room for all students. We encourage you to share ideas with us about things you would like to see in here, come and chat to us if you have any questions or queries and we will gladly do our best to help!
I look forward to the year ahead, and I hope to see many of you making The Hub your sitting-room/kitchen away from home!!
All the best,
