WELCOME

 

What's happening over Welcome Week?

Welcome Week is the busiest and most exciting time of year here at Warwick. Alongside your departmental introductions and settling-in sessions, make sure you don't miss out on anything we have going on at the Students' Union!

Our programme of SU-run events can be found below, but if you’d also like to see what our clubs and societies have organised, you can see our full event listing here.

Our entertainments programme caters to a wide range of tastes - we heartily recommend you try out as much as possible to meet new people and make the most out of your Welcome Week.

If there is anything you are unsure of, we've put together answers to some frequently asked questions about events and general Welcome Week issues (including information for under-18s) here.
