As a key part of the University experience, what can I expect from events during Freshers?
Under current government guidelines, it is very unlikely that large scale social events will be able to take place in the same way, with reduced capacities and other measures of social distancing expected to protect public health. This means that the Student Union is unlikely to be able to deliver the exciting planned Freshers events programme we had hoped to until such social distancing measure are removed. We are currently looking at alternative options for you during this period and can assure you we will be providing many opportunities for interaction, both virtually and physically. We may also look to re-run planned events, once it is safe to do so.
Will there be a Freshers Fayre as normal?
There will be a Freshers Fayre but it will be delivered in a different format to our usual event. We are currently working with all stakeholders to review options and alternate delivery methods, with the priority being that you still have every chance to engage with the many sports, societies, representational networks and other opportunities provided by the Union, University and the wider community.
Keep an eye out across our social media channels throughout August and September, as we release our revised Events Programme for September's Arrival period.
We look forward to welcoming you to Winchester in September.
