Welcome is one of the busiest times of the academic year, as new and returning students make their way onto campus ahead of the start of term. It relies on both staff and students from across the University volunteering their time to greet students, to answer simple but important questions, to provide a great first impression of Swansea University and ultimately start creating a sense of community.

This year Welcome activity will run from Wednesday 21st – Sunday 25th September with peak levels of activity on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th. You can also volunteer to help students into accommodation off campus on the 9th – 11th September.

Further contact will be made in the summer with confirmation of dates and training times.
