What is Welcome 2023?
Each September we welcome students to Birmingham, by hosting a variety of fun events and activities including our AMAZING Welcome Wristband! This allows you the chance to get to know your fellow students, the campus and the Guild.
What events are planned for Welcome?
We’re excited to be hosting a range of events giving you the opportunity to meet your student community, get to know campus and have fun! A few key events which we’re really excited about are: our Welcome Fair, Societies Fair and Welcome club nights.
But it doesn’t stop there, we have so much more planned which will be posted right here on our welcome site and our social media.
How many events will there be?
There will be a full programme of events, from small scale socials to fabulous parties. You won't want to miss out, so make sure you explore them all on our events page.
Are any club nights planned for Welcome?
Yes! We have a fantastic range of club nights, including our Welcome Party, UV Full Moon Party, Glitter Ball and our infamous Fab Nights! All of these events are available to purchase within our Welcome Wristband, giving you priority access from just £25! Our events are very popular, so get your tickets soon to avoid disappointment!
Fab is our weekly student club night which takes place each Saturday right here at the Guild, featuring various fantastic DJs, live acts and themes across the year, this night out is a MUST.
When does Welcome start?
Welcome Week starts on 18th September!
How can I buy official tickets?
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 us are tailored for University of Birmingham students, and will be held either at the Guild, or at Guild approved venues.
So, we ask you to only purchase tickets for official events available through our website. To make things easier we’ve added an official stamp to all of our events, so you know they’re legit!
Will student groups be running events?
They will! The best way to find out about their upcoming events is to explore our student groups and check out their social media.
