WelcomeFest is a festival of welcome for everyone studying at the University of Hull. If you’ve been to the likes of V, Glastonbury, Bestival, or Leeds, you’ll understand the comparisons to WelcomeFest. We have thousands of people from all over the country, of all ages, with every different kind of music taste, fashion sense and personalities, meeting in one place with one thing in mind: to kick-start their academic year with a bang, meet new people and have fun.
Our aim is to welcome students to their new city, campus and student life. We’ll help them to create new connections through shared interests, societies, sports, culture and liberation groups, and help them to meet new people through Give It A Go activities, trips, nights out, family days, and even the odd roller disco!
If you've just found out that you are coming here 'Hi'! We can't wait for you to join us in September and help you discover everything the University, Hull and your Union have to offer. There's so much to get involved in and be a part of. We are sure you will find something for you - check out the 'Get Involved' section for details of everything you could try.
If you're coming back for another year our message to you is that it is never too late to try something new. You university experience is not over until you're on that stage at graduation, so don't sit back for another year, get stuck into something you've always wanted to try or find an activity that will make you employable as you head out into the world of work.
Remember that our events are for all students, new and old. WelcomeFest is for everyone, whether you are 18 and coming straight from a-levels, returning to education later in life or soming back for another year.
Find us in Student Central and follow us on twitter. We'd love to hear about your WelcomeFest adventurescomments powered by Disqus
