Welcome to NUSU

Welcome to NUSU

Welcome to NUSU, run by the Students' Union, is the main programme of social activities during the arrival, welcome and registration period.

Welcome to NUSU Events

Although we can’t run our Freshers’ Activities as in previous years our Welcome to NUSU events programme is your one stop shop to get to know your Students’ Union, the campus and the city you will call home for the duration of your studies.

Your Give it a Go team have been working hard over the summer to ensure there’s so much you can get involved in during the day once you arrive. From campus and city tours to help you feel at home, to learning the local lingo and getting to know the best spots to get your hands on the best local scran, your Welcome to NUSU daytime events will have you making friends and finding new activities you love before your lectures have started. There will also be so much taking place on campus from activities, events and experiences from NUSU, your clubs and societies and brand and businesses we know you’ll love. Head over to which will be the home of your activities calendar.

For all you Postgraduate Students keep your eyes peeled for our PG Recommends activities. These are activities chosen by Charlotte, your 2020-2021 NUSU Postgraduate Officer, and your GIAG team that we think you’ll love. Head over to the Postgraduate Welcome to NUSU page where you can find all our PG Recommends activities and maps to great study and social spots to get you through your studies. You can head to
