Make friends from around the world!

Thursday 23 September at 11:00 am to 12:30 pm

‘Make friends from around the world’ does exactly what it says on the tin!

Come along to the Global Lounge and meet other students, from all over the world, and get involved in fun activities led by our brilliant student ambassadors – or, if you prefer, just chill out and chat with a drink!

This event will help get you to settled in your new home by giving you the opportunity to meet other students at the University and make connections from the moment you arrive! Everyone in attendance will be in the same boat as you, as we like to say in the UK, or have been there at some point, so this is a great place to start your Bristol journey.

There will be an array of fun and relaxing activities for you to take part in, helping you to make conversation with others, with different activities planned for every session throughout the Welcome period (dates below). Activities will include charades, quizzes, cardmaking, bookmark-making, board games and card games.

Please note that there is no obligation to join in with any of these – you can simply enjoy being in the ‘room’ with other students (in person!!!) and get to know them at your own pace – we guarantee after the first session or two you will be making plans to attend welcome period activities with others!
