Welcome To YourGuild of Students

As your Guild, here at the University of Birmingham, it’s our job to make sure you get the best possible start to University life. That's why we’ve been busy pulling together plans for a Welcome 2021 to remember!

Right now, we’re mapping out a blended OFFICIAL Welcome programme featuring both in-person and virtual events, giving you the best of both worlds.

However, we have noticed lots of unofficial events, Facebook groups and Whatsapp chats popping up across social media asking you to part with your money. Please be aware that these groups are not associated with the Guild or University, in any way! We can guarantee that all events hosted by ourselves and the University, are 100% exclusively for University of Birmingham students, they will all be Covid secure and delivered in line with current Government guidance.
