The Society was founded in 1984 to promote communication between the Irish students of Trinity College and those coming from abroad.
With over 500 members, the International Students' Society (DUISS) is one of Trinity's most active societies.
Whether you are an International or Exchange student, or have an interest in meeting new people and experiencing new cultures, DUISS is the society for you. It doesn't matter if you are from China, the US, Europe, Ireland, or anywhere, all nationalities are more than welcome to share the experience of being a Trinity student and being in Ireland.
We run on average three events per week, ranging from social nights, to talks and presentations, to movie showings. Saturday is when our famous trips take place. Together with other members of the society, we take exclusive trips to cultural sites around Dublin and Ireland. Last year we organised over thirty day trips and five weekend trips. Our Weekends Away are what we are best known for, as we fill up a bus with fellow International Students and head out to explore Ireland. Last year we visited Killarney, Cork, Galway, Belfast and Kilkenny.
We also provide help and support in adjusting to life away from home, and offer an extensive library of International books and films, as well as guides and booklets offering advice on living in Dublin. So whether you are a full-time student, on Erasmus, or just looking for new friends and loads of fun, why not come along! Make your Trinity experience the best of your life - Join DUISS!
