Officer Team Statement: Unofficial WhatsApp Chats

Guild News Icon Guild News Icon

“To all students joining the University of Birmingham this September.

We have been made aware that prospective students are being added to unofficial WhatsApp groups passing off as Birmingham 19/20 Fresher chats. Please be aware that these groups are not associated with the Guild of Students or University of Birmingham. Unfortunately, there are a number of these chats and groups across all social media channels pretending to represent the Guild and University in order to promote their unaffiliated club nights and promotions. Some of the content being shared in these groups is completely unacceptable – and at the very least unhelpful to students looking for guidance on starting their student journey.

We strongly recommend that you leave these unaffiliated chats and make us or the University aware of them where possible. These cases are now being investigated with University security to ensure that everyone can have a safe transition to student life at the University of Birmingham.”
