Welcome Week Schedule

We have so many exciting events lined up to give you the full YSJSU experience this September! From a Petting Zoo, to an Outdoor Cinema to the Freshers Fair, there's something for everyone to enjoy during Welcome Week to meet like-minded students and settle into university life. As well as daytime events, we have a week packed full of events in the bar, paired with our new food and cocktail menus, and of course, a week full of YSJ club nights!
