Events and activities

We are excited to be able to bring our events and activities back to campus and we’re looking forward to meeting you too. We know it's been a tough year and not necessarily the social experience you imaged. All in-person events are bookable and safety measures, in line with Government and university guidance, are in place so you can be reassured your safety is still our priority. 

Don’t worry if you’re not in Leicester, or not ready to socialise in person just yet, as we will still continue to have a range of online events too, with some in-person events being live streamed so you’re still very much a part of what’s happening on campus.

Please note, outdoor events listed my be cancelled at the last minute due to adverse weather conditions. 

Keep an eye out for this page for updates on specific events.
