Dear Student,

It gives me great pleasure as President to welcome you as a student of the Cork Institute of Technology and wish you every success during your time in the Institute, both academically and personally. I am also delighted to introduce to you, this myCIT Student Portal.

In this website, you will find information about student facilities, services, welfare, health, counselling services, sports and recreation, regulations and many more. It is a general reference book which we hope you will find useful during the coming academic year. These services are there to serve you, do not hesitate to avail of them, and be assured of their confidentiality. Student Services staff, Students’ Union, Chaplaincy Team, your Head of Department or any of your lecturers are available and will help guide you. On behalf of all my colleagues associated with Academic Administration and Student Affairs, welcome to CIT.
