    I've applied to UCD as an incoming undergraduate and I was hoping anyone who studies/studied at UCD would be able to answer them.

    What do most students do at the weekend like do they go home or do they stay on campus and go out with friends etc?

    Does anyone have any info on the Information and Social Computing course? As I've found it hard to find comments from people who have actually done this course.

    Does Roebuck Hall have lifts in the building?

    Is UCD hard to get into or is it like the school that everyone goes to? e.g. Is it fairly easy for anyone to get into (just want to know my chances of getting into UCD come results day!)

    Any other general info about student life and thoughts about UCD as a university?

    Any answers would be greatly appreciated!

    If you can commute home easily then go for it but it's better to stay on campus, make friends and make a life for yourself away from home and what's comfortable. Do go home once in a while though. What kind of info are you looking for about the course? Try the website. If you meet the entry requirements and have a strong application then you'll be fine. The uni website will tell you more about student life.
