NUI Galway Students’ Union to Distribute Reusable Masks to Students

As students return to Galway for the start of the academic year NUI Galway Students’ Union are distributing free masks to students on behalf of NUI Galway. The University has supplied 3 high quality, reusable, washable masks for every student in NUIG which the SU will be giving out over the next three weeks starting with First Year Orientation this week.

The SU has partnered with the University to ensure that all students will have a chance to get their masks which will be available for collection from the Aula Maxima in the Quadrangle building on campus until Friday 9th of October. After that masks will be available from the SU Office for anyone who hasn’t had a chance to collect theirs. The University will also be distributing masks to all NUIG Staff members too.

NUI Galway Students’ Union President Pádraic Toomey said: “We are delighted to partner with the University on this project to ensure that all NUI Galway students are ready for the start of the semester with a supply of reusable masks. We encourage all our students to wear face coverings to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and look after each other. This is just one of the important ways in which we can all join the fight against the spread of Coronavirus.”

The SU Pop Up is located in the Aula at the Quadrangle Building on Campus until Thursday 8th October and will also have free SU Diaries, free SU Loyalty Cards and free Flirt FM Wall Planners for NUIG students.

Provisional Opening Hours are:

  • Mon 5th -Thurs 8th Oct 12pm-3pm
