Your Guide to Welcome Week

Your first week at university is an exciting experience, but can also be daunting when you don’t know what to expect. Our new Welcome Week site is designed to provide all of the essential information you need to know about Welcome Week and how to prepare. This includes your Welcome Week timetables and a range of helpful information about enrolment and everything you'll need to prepare for starting university.

Stay tuned for more information — we'll be launching the site ready for 2022 entry in the next few months.

Get Ready to Move In

In our university-managed accommodation, our Residential Wardens will be working hard to develop a sense of community and supporting an engaging university experience through a range of exciting social activites.

These activities are designed to connect students within their apartments and buildings, and establish a sense of belonging, community, and support. These may include a range of 'Warden Challenges' such as photo competitions and social media-based activities, as well as online quizzes and games.

We also aim provide students from across our accommodation with opportunities to interact with others outside of their immediate blocks and form connections and support networks across our one community.
