Howay! Check out the full line-up of welcome events and entertainment. Join one of our many virtual or live-streamed events, or book your table for one of our in-person events running out of the Big Blue & HOPE tents.

Although we aren't able to go ahead with our usual Freshers’ Activities because of Covid-19,  our team have been working hard over the summer to ensure there’s still so much going on for when you arrive. Working primarily from the Stretch tents outside of the Students' Union building in the heart of campus, there will be live entertinament running as well as tours, activities, and chances to try out some NUSU sport between 28th September - 11th October.

You can have a look at the kinds of events we have coming up below. Some of our events will require social distancing (unless running virtually) and because of this there will be certain capacities set on attendance as well as social distancing measures in play during the events. We will be emailing you all once sign-up's are open for our events, but until then, take a look at our Student Top 10s for inspiration on what you can get up to outside of our Welcome programme.
