Arrivals Weekend 2019 | We need you!

Hey YSJ!

It’s that time of the year again – here at the Students’ Union we are very busy planning for Freshers 2019! A huge part of Freshers is Move in Weekend as this is when we first welcome hundreds of new students to York St. John University. This year, Move in Weekend is taking place on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th and we need YOUR help!

Every year, we ask our students to volunteer their time to help the first years move into their accommodation. It’s always great to see our current students chatting to new starters, helping the parents carry box after box and ensuring everybody is settling in and aware of what’s happening over the weekend.

Move in Weekend is also a chance for you to volunteer for us and we need as many of you as possible to put yourself forward! You’ll even get a free lunch and t-shirt to say thanks for helping out.

If you are interested in volunteering during Move in Weekend, please email Alice Bolton ([email protected]) with the following;

  • Name
  • Preferred Accommodation
  • Availability over the Weekend (e.g. both days, one day, half a day)
  • Member of Sport / Society (if you are not a member of any, just leave this blank)
  • Dietary Requirements

Once this information has been gathered and we have our schedule together, full details will be emailed across to you including times, which accommodation site you will be based at and full plans for the weekend.

We look forward to seeing you all in September for another fantastic Move in Weekend!

Supporting York St John students to grow, succeed, and have a great time whilst at University
