You know best that the University of Sunderland welcome week is one of the biggest and most important weeks of the year for new students. Here is your chance to be part of our 2018 Students’ Union programme of activities and events.


Our Welcome Crew are an amazing team of volunteers who support new students throughout Welcome Week and are a friendly face at our events and activities, making sure everyone feels happy and settled in. From moving into student accommodation, answering questions, providing tips and info, and making sure students are safe throughout the week on and off campus - The Crew is essential to making student’s first University experiences the very best they can be.


Help us with a wide range of exciting activities and events for new and returning students. As well as having lots on offer throughout each day, we also have some great, chilled out, alternative evening events planned too.
