Settling in to University Life

Whether you’re coming back to University or heading to campus for the first time, settling in to University life in September can feel like a big task but we are on hand to help you meet like-minded people, try something new and kick off the academic year perfectly.

We have a whole host of Welcome events right here at the Guild, and in the city, to begin the year in style. We like to think there is a little something for everyone from club nights to comedy and the Big Quiz to a Baltic Market trip.

From first years to final years, come along to as little or as much as you’d like – you can build the perfect welcome week for you!

Top Tip: heading out on a Welcome Week tour, of the city, campus or the guild, will give you all the details of what’s on offer to you as a UoL student - and you’ll pick up some new facts along the way.

If you’re looking to meet likeminded people and learn something new then look no further than joining a society!

We have over 200 societies ready for you to join as soon as you are on campus, you can join a society based on your hobbies, to develop a skill or even to further your academic studies. But most importantly being part of a society is a great way to meet new people with a shared interest.

Through their social events, skill sessions and regular meetings our societies make the Guild their home and enrich their members' university experience. You can get to know our societies a little better during the Society Fair on Friday 20th September, but for now see the full list of Guild societies and how to get involved here

Your Guild is for life, not just for Welcome Week. We understand that it takes longer than 7 days to make a new mate or settle in to a new city, so we have a packed programme of events all year round to give your University experience a glow up.

You can:

  • Smash our weekly pub quiz
  • Catch a live sport game in the Coutyard
  • Learn something new at a Give it a go event
  • Make the shop your go to Meal Deal destination and lots more!
