​The timetable is issued as early as possible in advance of the start of term. Faculty are notified of the publication of the timetable by Events/All Staff email.

Module, lecturer, room and student timetables can be viewed on the web at www.timetable.ul.ie. Course timetables can only be viewed in hard copy due to the volume of detail they contain.

​Copies of course timetables are given to each Course Leader for distribution to the students at their Orientation course meeting. These timetables show all the lectures for the course.

After the first year registrations are downloaded in week 1, a personalised timetable is generated for each first year student which details which lab and tutorial groups they must attend as well as all their lecture hours. Students who do not register in week 1 cannot be issued with a personalised timetable. First year students can access their personalised timetables on the web at www.timetable.ul.ie by close of day on Friday of week 2.

An Events/All Staff email is sent out in advance of the start of term with a link to a file detailing who is allocated to each group. If students do not register, they will not be listed in any group. Student timetabling is entirely dependent on student registrations.

You should contact your Head of Department/Scheduling Co-ordinator who in turn will notify the Scheduling Officer.  All queries should be submitted by email.
