Welcome Week 2020

Village Activity Zones

Your Hall Reps and Mentors are pleased to invite you to the Village Activity Zones; a space within your accommodation site, where you can have fun, try something new and even meet new people.

Not only are the events free of charge, but you won’t have to travel far to get your craft on! Activities ranging from board games to cupcake and biscuit decorating, potting plants to Art Classes (ran by Art Soc), there really is something for everyone to get involved in.


There are two types of activities: joint activities that you book and attend as a household, and individual activities that you book and attend by yourself. Each activity is an hour long meaning there are several opportunities to join in the activity you want to take part in.

If you are booking a household activity you need to book with your household group of up to six people, and stay with them. We will be following the Government's 'Rule of Six' for these events.

If you are booking as an individual we will be running the activity following social distancing guidelines.

Get your tickets below.


There is an Activity Zone for each of the 3 accommodation villages:

  • Vale Residents Activity Zone located at Tennis Courts
  • Pritchatt’s Residents Activity Zone located at the car park in Pritchatt’s
  • Selly Oak Village Residents Activity Zone located at Jarratt Hall*

*This site is also for students at Host:The Metalworks, Bournbrook, Oak Brook Park, and Unite Battery Park

Activities will be rotated at all sites meaning that you can attend the site closest to you to take part in what you are interested in.

These activities are for students living in UoB and partner accommodation.
