Welcome Week

students on campus for the fresh fairWelcome Week is a chance for you to settle in, to find out about your two new homes - the University of Leicester and the City of Leicester - and to start making new friends with other freshers who are just as excited or nervous as you are about this big life change.

If you are coming to Leicester from overseas - or if you just turn up here a few days ahead of everyone else - the previous week is our Early Arrivals and International Welcome Week.
