Welcome, your way

We’ve got loads of activities planned for you online and on campus to help you settle in during your first few of weeks here. We’ve got live tours, workshops, quizzes, games, talks, virtual fairs, mocktail parties and much more. Your exciting journey as a Citizen of Change starts here.

Finding your circle

From your first day here, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make friends and meet like-minded people. Flatmates. Classmates. Teammates. Best mates. We’ve got lots of activities that will break the ice and help you get to know people from Leicester and all around the world. From small groups sessions to larger gatherings, there will be something to suit your style and preference.

Mind, body and soul

We want to keep you safe and help you look after your mind, body and soul, from wellbeing to finance and fitness to faith. Our peer mentor scheme will match you with a current like-minded student and with events from our multi-faith chaplaincy and over 40 sports clubs and societies including yoga, basketball to Quidditch, there’s something for everyone.
