How to access our events!

By bzellie 04 Sep 2020

Res Life is such a massive part of university life and we have so many exciting events coming your way!

When living in university accommodation for the very first time, it can be a bit difficult to get to know students in your residence. Hence, your Residence Life Team hosts social events accessible to all students, free of charge!

The purpose of these events is to bring the students of a certain accommodation/campus together for them to get know each of other better. Usually, we host our regular events multiple days a week, such as Coffee Lounges, Board Game Nights and even Waffle Nights (Cartwright Court exclusive). Residence Life Assistants (RLAs) also plan and run event throughout the year, including craft nights, sporting events and lots of free food! In addition to this, we host slightly bigger events a few times a month. These events include multi-cultural themes like Curry Night and Middle Eastern feasts, as well as Exam brunches and events to help you through tough study periods.

The majority of our events are in person, however, we still run some online events! To access any of our events, you will first need to register on Eventbrite. This registration process helps us get a good estimate of the number of students we should expect to better organise the events. The process is very simple but is necessary.
