Chubike 'Chuby' Okide, HUU President

Hello! I'd just like to say a big old congratulations if you're joining us in September and a huge welcome back to those returning for another year or for further study.

If you're a first year your welcome pack will be with you in the next few days. It's a very special welcome to uni life and includes our exclusive WelcomeFest magazine with articles and stories written for you by current students to give you some hints and tips and insider info about uni life. There's also a festival style What's On guide with details of all 50 plus events that we have scheduled for WelcomeFest 2015. We can't wait for you to see it! Remember to share your excitement with us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using #hullwelcomefest15.

For our returning students keep your eye out for your What's On Guide and a special newsletter to let you know what we've been up to whilst you've been away! There are some exciting developments in the Union building we know you'll be excited about as well as some great new additions to the usual WelcomeFest lineup.

We can only include so much info in our packs so there's plenty more goodness to be found online. Have a good click and scroll around, check out our incredible services and find out how we can set you on your way to the best University experience ever!

Remember: It's just the beginning!
