The UofG Welcome is your official start to life at the University of Glasgow.

It's a series of events and activities which includes the concentrated 'Welcome Week' (in September) as well as the January Welcome (throughout January), plus a few more events throughout both semesters which are all designed to introduce you to life at the University of Glasgow, or if you're a returning student to give you a warm welcome back.
The UofG Welcome is open to all students at the University of Glasgow, including 1st through 5th years, Postgraduate students, exchange students and more!

Relatives, friends, and students from other universities are unfortunately not allowed to attend.

Some events will be more tailored for specific year groups or communities of students - be sure to check the event descriptions for details if you're unsure if an event is suitable for you.
The UofG Welcome is led by the Students' Representative Council - they're the folks who fight for student rights, provide advice and support and organise opportunities and events (like this one!).

The September Welcome is also supported by Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA) who organise great events such as the Sports Fayre, Taster Sessions and more.

You can find out more about the SRC here. You can find out more about GUSA here.
