We've planned a schedule jam-packed with a wide range of online and on-campus events to ensure that no matter who you are, what you're studying or what interests you - you can find something you want to attend. We want to make sure students have the opportunity to meet, have fun and be safe.
We’ve got over 60 events: from Give It a Go taster sessions to quiz nights, the Sports and Society Fairs to a virtual welcome party - there’s something for everyone.
Our priority is everyone’s safety and wellbeing, so many events will take place online or have special arrangements to ensure that social distancing guidelines can be adhered to, so please read the event information carefully before booking. Tickets will only be available to University of Hull students.
For some events, including the outdoor cinema and live music nights, tickets will only be available for groups from the same household or social bubble, so these tickets will not go on sale until 10:00 on September 14 th to give you the chance to get to know your new house mates and decide which of the great events on offer you would like to attend together.
Please note that due to COVID 19 restrictions events may change, be cancelled and new events may be added, so please check back here regularly.
12th - 25th September
