UCB Guild Freshers' Daytime Activities

As a part of this year's Freshers' the Guild have arranged and organised a variety of different daytime activities that are open to ALL University College Birmingham students (you don't have to own a wristband to attend these). Throughout the two weeks, there will be a lot of opportunities for you to meet up with your peers and friends, and to engage with your student union. Specific times of the events will be confirmed and listed below. 

If you are more interested in the Freshers' night-time activities, please click here to have a look at the full line-up. Don't forget to get your wristbands by visiting our Fatsoma Shop. If you have any questions regarding any of the activities, feel free to contact us via the contact form on the website, through our social media or via email

For those who aren't familiar, the GuildSpace is our dedicated student space that is located at The Maltings student accommodation.  Find out more about it here.
