- You’ll need your mobile phone charger. And some method of seeking a plug socket not already being used by one of our 300 delegates. Good luck.
- You’ll need WARM clothes. It’s November and Galway is beside the sea.
- You need a rain jacket and/or a quirky umbrella of some sort. Trust us.

Where to go
Registration and most training will take place at the Students’ Union in NUI Galway. Clear signposting will direct you to training sessions conducted outside the building.
Your safety and the safety of others is our primary concern. To this end, you are required to abide by certain conduct regulations at this event. Put simply, they’re these:
- You must take responsibility for your Hostel bed. If there is any damage to the hostel, this will be charged directly to your delegation. This is particularly serious because any damage will result in the forfeit of the security deposit.
- If you witness something which could endanger you or another delegate, you must report it immediately either to your facilitator (if in training), a delegation leader or a member of the USI team.
- Violence, coercion, bullying, harrassing or threatening behaviour are obviously unacceptable at a USI event. The authority to eject a delegate from the event lies with USI and we will not hesitate to use it in cases where we deem it necessary to protect our members and the integrity of Pink Training.
- We won’t tolerate ‘phobic’ acts or utterances at Pink Training. PT is about respect, learning and support. Hate gets left outside – and haters will be.
- PT is a training event – we expect delegates to attend the training in a fit state to take part in the training activities.
- In all aspects of interactions with participants and facilitators, we require the greatest of respect and highest standard of conduct.
