The Students' Union are dedicated to making sure you have the best experience during Welcome Week and have the opportunity to engage with activities and communities. With over 500 events happening across Welcome Week, the Students’ Union has something for everyone.
The daily fairs
The Students’ Union are hosting a different themed fair on campus each day during Welcome Week where you will have the opportunity to meet student groups. Make sure you grab a ticket from their webpage as they sell out fast.
The themes are:

- Thursday 28 September – artsUCL.
The Welcome Fair
The Welcome Fair is from Saturday 30 September - Sunday 1 October. This is the main event during Welcome Week and features two days of clubs and societies, freebies, society performances, food and more.
