Students at NCI can avail of a comfortable recreation room, perfect for relaxing and chilling out.

NCI is committed to making the college our students' home away from home, whether they commute or reside in our campus accommodation. To help this, we provide a custom-built area for students to chill out, relax and enjoy themselves. 

The area is located on the lower ground floor (basement) along with the gym, locker area and car park.

The recreational area consists of:

  • Pool tables - Three tables are available to students. Students have to pay a €5 fine if anyone is found tampering with the tables. The money will be donated to Aware at the end of the year.
  • Video games - A selection of video games are available.
  • TV area - Students have access to a raised seated area with a TV.
  • Stage area - A raised platform is located in one corner of the rec room. This is to accommodate bands or performers or a large screen which may be in from time to time.
  • Vending machines - A variety of soft drinks, snacks, tea and coffee are available to purchase.
  • Information centre - There is an area dedicated to the provision of information. Leaflets, important dates and contact details of various welfare, education and equality agencies are available.
  • Noticeboards - Boards for clubs and societies, along with general noticeboards, are located around the rec room to provide information on upcoming events.

The Rec Room is available to students during normal college opening hours.
