Get a Buddy!

Having a Buddy is a great way to meet new people, find your way around campus and the city, develop your confidence and communication skills and help you look after your wellbeing.  It’s completely free to take part.

We try and find you the perfect match, considering your interests, preferences and area of study. All our Buddies are trained and supported to be amazing in their role.

“My buddy... has been a great help so far! He's helped me with a lot of useful things in order to get situated in Sunderland and we've also met up twice so far! He is super nice, friendly, and very helpful!”
