Freshers Week kicks off on Saturday 11th September. Give It A Go events from our Clubs & Socs and Sports teams will start in Freshers Week and run throughout September. The week is sponsored by our friends at Domino's Pizza - make sure you check out their amazing student deals on offer!
We will have a range of on-campus and virtual events & activities to welcome you to your Students' Union and University life. You'll get to find out about our incredible Clubs, Socs & Sports teams, our Community Garden, our much-loved catering, bar & Starbucks coffee outlets and so much more.
You'll also get to meet the four Sabbatical Officers who were elected in March 2021 to represent you for a year, Nela, Alyson, Callum and Sophie.
