Welcome Village

Ready to Find Your Bristol? Get started at our Welcome Village in the heart of campus - 21 to 23 September 2021

Delicious food and performance

Come and join us for three days of performance and delicious food, set amongst the beautifully landscaped surroundings of Royal Fort Gardens.

The gardens are the perfect destination to visit between your welcome week inductions and events. There's a Tipi café, smoothies, street food, cracking coffee, panel discussions, yoga and chilled DJs. For the more active, you can try one of our give-it-a-go sport sessions, from Zumba to a coconut shy.

Live graffiti and giveaways

There are new art installations, including live graffiti artists in action and student performances from our outdoor stage, as well as loads of giveaways as well!

Meet new people and find support

The Welcome Village is also a great place to meet new people and to work out how to get the support you need right now and into the future.

The student services teams will be on hand to tell you about staying safe, sustainability, wellbeing and careers. The Bristol Drugs Project will also be there to provide advice and support.
