CONGRATULATIONS, YOU'RE PART OF THE FAMILY NOW
When you enrol with the University you'll automatically become a member of the Students' Union. We're run by students, for students to make sure you get the most out of your education and experience as a student.
Check out all the OFFICIAL events taking place during Freshers’, there’s something for everyone and it’s a fantastic way to meet new friends.
CARDIFF STREET FAIR
The ATRiuM foyer will be overflowing with stalls, which in previous years have included easyGym, Glee Club, Clwb Ifor Bach, Chapter Arts Centre and many of our Students' Union clubs and societies. The Street Fair will celebrate the unique character of our Cardiff Campus, with live music and broadcasts.
Our biggest Welcome Week event, Freshers’ Fair is packed with something for everyone, including the Students’ Union’s very own stalls –clubs, teams and societies and student representation. Soak up the atmosphere from our 150+ stalls and enjoy freebies from Amazon and tasters from Dominoes - Freshers' Fair is one event that you don't want to miss!
