Information Services (IS) activities for new students

During the Big Welcome Weekend and Orientation Week we provide a range of activities to welcome new students and introduce our services so you can make the best use of them during your time here. These include:

In addition, there will be a Library & IT stand at the Student Support Services welcome fair in the Great Hall Foyer in the Arts Centre 8am-6pm on Friday 22 September and Saturday 23 September 2017.

For students whose courses start at different times of the year special arrangements can be made with the Academic Department to provide these sessions - further information is available on this page.
