We've arranged a wide range of Welcome events to help you get settled in. There’s Meet & Greet events, Library, Campus & City Tours, free refreshments, and a chance to free stuff, and lots of opportunities to meet new people. We have courses to prepare you for studying at University, and lots more too. If you don’t know where to start, go to the Enquiry Centre in the heart of City Campus.

The main events start on Saturday 7 September, but if you’re around before then, we have events for you too.
