Food on the run! By consensus most graduates remember the egg and chips student special as the meal of choice at the UCD Canteen.

Do you remember UCD Science day? A long held tradition, you may remember students running about campus dressed in white clothes and colourful clothes having a roaring time and fundraising for a good cause!
Can you see familiar faces or sights? These photos were taken during the 80s and 90s in UCD and recently graduates have got in touch to let us know about their fondest memories of UCD. An additional thank you to the UCD Hidden History blog for their memories.
