Niall Behan President

My name is Niall Behan and I am delighted to be your Students’ Union President for the 2017/18 academic year at Dublin City University.

I’m from Dublin and studied Accounting & Finance during my time in DCU. I have learned so much from the college, and have enjoyed every minute of it and I want to make sure you do too!

I was chairperson of the A&F society, was the Business Convener on the SU and was involved in countless society and club events.Anything from Boxing’s “Rag Rumble” to Style Soc’s Fashion Shows, from Rugby Matches to Investment Funding, I’ve experienced the very best DCU has to offer students. There’s so much going on here from social and volunteering, to club and society life. The one piece of advice I wish everyone takes is to get involved in ABSOLUTELY everything and to try find your niche. You won’t be disappointed with the results!

We are always here if you need us, just pop up to our offices on the Glasnevin or St Patrick's campuses. Our doors are always open and you can always count on the SU to be a place where you will get listened to. I believe the main goal of the SU President is to be somebody you can chat to, so if you see me anywhere from the Nubar, around campus or in Dublin, don’t hesitate to stop me and have a chat. I hope to represent the student body to the best of my ability and to engage everybody in what is becoming Ireland’s fastest growing university.

I’d love to hear any ideas you have for events and campaigns for the year and would like to encourage you all to get involved in the Students’ Union by attending the various events we hold on all campuses and would encourage you to run for Class Rep this year.

You can find me on the Glasnevin Campus on Mondays Tuesdays & Fridays in the SU offices, and on St Patrick’s campus on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Looking forward to meeting you,



The President coordinates the activities of the Students’ Union and works with University Management to achieve the best academic environment and quality of life for DCU students. The President is responsible for the finances of the Union, for co-ordinating Union campaigns during the year and acts as chief spokesperson for the Union. If you feel things could be done better or if you can identify an area in which improvement is needed within the University, then talk to Niall.
