Welcome Lounge – ‘ask me anything’ drop in

Friday 17 September at 11:00 am to 2:00 pm

Coming to a new country, or even a new city, can be a daunting experience – but don’t worry, the Global Lounge team is here to help!

If you need help with something and you’re not sure where to go, don’t hesitate to come and visit us, in person, in the Global Lounge.

Help yourself to a free hot drink and tell us what you need assistance with, and we’ll do our best to help you find the information you need. In the Lounge we offer lots of practical support; we can:

  • help you with opening a bank account,
  • provide you with a free sim card for your phone,
  • explain how transportation in Bristol works,
  • direct you to resources that can help you with finding private accommodation or any other information you need.

Come and find us! 👋

The Global Lounge is home to intercultural activity for all students and staff at the University. We are open 8 am to 6 pm, every Monday to Friday (during term-time) on the 1st floor of Senate House. If you’re not sure where to go or who to speak to, you will always find a friendly face here!

During the welcome period, 13 to 24 September, we will be running specific ASK ME ANYTHING drop in sessions, from 11 am – 2pm, and also lots of fun and social activities to help you make friends from around the world, so make sure you check out all of our events!

Send a postcard home! ✉️

We will also be offering a free postcard service, where you can come in and write a postcard to your friends and family back home – which we will then post for you – to let them know that you have arrived safely!

Unlike many of our welcome events this is a drop in session, therefore booking is not necessary.
