Welcome Week: 18th - 22nd September 2023


Welcome Events

There's only one way to do Welcome Week at the University of Birmingham, and that's with your Guild!

Join us as we help you to meet new people, make new friends, settle in (or settle back into) life at Birmingham, and celebrate the start of a brand new academic year.

Official Welcome Events

Official Event Guild Stamp

How can I tell which events are official? Simple, just look out for our ‘Official Event’ stamp, included on all welcome events, so you can buy with confidence.

We have a fantastic line-up of events coming up – the only way to start University life!
