The College Campus is made up of three buildings. Courses are scheduled across the three buildings; however certain courses are housed in specific buildings as follows:
There are two administration offices in BCFE – one located in the Main Building and one in the Arts Building; students in the Media Building should access the office in the Main Building. Both offices are open for student queries from 9.00- 1.00pm and 2.00 – 3.30pm daily. All student forms (e.g., Social Welfare, Grant Forms etc.) and requests for letters must be left in either the Main office, or the Arts building office, in person two days in advance. Student ID cards must be presented when collecting forms and/or letters.
BCFE Student ID Cards
You will be issued with the instructions to create your own virtual ISIC student card when you are a fully registered student in BCFE. This International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is recognised as accepted proof of your student status both nationally and internationally. This ID card gives you access to a diverse selection of benefits and discounts around the world. Refer to www.isic.ie for the full list of benefits.
BCFE canteen facilities are provided by Coffeecup catering in both the Main and Arts buildings; opening hours are from 8.30 am to 2pm Monday to Friday. Students based in the Media Building access the canteen facilities in the Main Building. Payment in the canteen is via contactless payment. There are vending machines (drinks and snacks) available in all three buildings.
The car park in the Arts Building is reserved for staff, visitors and students with disabilities. All other students can park in the car park in front of the Main and Media Buildings.
A limited number of lockers are available for students to use during the academic year in the Arts and the Main buildings. Lockers are allocated on a first-come-first- served basis by the Porter in each building.
Enquiries about lost property should be directed to the Porter’s desk at the main entrance of each building.
Two photocopiers for student use are located outside the staff room in the Main Building and outside the Student Resource Room in the Arts Building. Students based in the Media building can access the photocopier in the Main Building. Cards with a set allowance for photocopying (at a cost of €2) are available from the administration office in the Main Building and the Porter’s office in the Arts Building.
Stationary & Art Materials
A selection of art materials is available for purchase throughout the academic year in the Art Department’s Technician’s (Cathy Gissane) office in the Arts Building beside Studio 1. The process for purchasing these materials will be online and information about this process will be given to all art students at induction.
While in class, students are requested to have their phones on silent at all times and are asked not to record or post to social media without permission. No phone calls/messages can be taken in the office for students.
