VOLUNTEERING & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT GMIT students are involved in a range of civic engagement and volunteering projects across all major disciplines. Students have an opportunity to undertake a five-credit module in Civic Engagement, which appoints students in responsible and challenging actions in a range of non-profit organisations. Students can also apply for the GMIT President's Thrive Award for Volunteering. To be considered for this award, students must volunteer for 25 hours which can be done with outside organisations or on certain initiatives within GMIT. GMIT liaises with Volunteer Galway to offer volunteering opportunities for this award.
STUDENT RESOURCES GMIT campuses are well equipped to make sure that you have everything you need on site – from libraries, sports facilities and IT centres, to the ever-popular meeting point of the canteen/coffee shop. The Dublin Road campus in Galway City also has a number of training restaurants, where you can enjoy three-course meals at discounted prices.
HEALTHY CAMPUS promotes and facilitates Positive Health and Wellbeing activities amongst the GMIT Community. Healthy Campus consists of a large working group made up of staff and students from our five campuses. We have five subgroups assigned to rollout initiatives, share information and develop policies relating to Nutrition, Physical Health, Mental Health, Sexual Health and Substance Use. In January 2020, GMIT became a Clean Air (no Smoking or Vaping) Campus.
