Belfield FM is University College Dublin’s student radio station. The station began broadcasting in 1990. It was initially run as a part of the UCD Students’ Union , under the remit of the entertainments office, before becoming an independent entity within the Students’ Union. As a result of cost cutting measures, Belfield FM disaffiliated with the SU at the end of the 2011/2012 college year and is now run independently within the UCD Societies Council framework. The station forms part of UCD’s student media Network, along with The University Observer, The College Tribune, and the Campus Television Network. The station is run by eight volunteer staff and over 150 contributors who work on the production, research, and hosting of the station’s radio shows. The station broadcasts live from ‘New Students centre’ from the Belfield FM studios located in the yellow radio station across from the societies corridor. Belfield FM has had some presence on campus for the past twenty years; however, it now operates on a full-time basis.
