Welcome Week Events

We have loads going on to welcome you to Queen Mary, so make sure you check out all our event information!

Students' Union Events

The Students' Union will be bringing you a packed line-up of events as part of its Official Freshers' programme from Friday 15th September to Sunday 1st October. You can enjoy trips and tours, club nights on campus and in some of London's biggest nightclubs, arts and crafts sessions, comedy nights and much more - there's even a boat ball down the Thames past some of London's most famous landmarks. You can view the official Queen Mary events line-up and buy your tickets now on the Students' Union website. For the ultimate Freshers' experience grab yourself one of our Pick & Mix Freshers' Passes - choose your favourite events and create a pass full of things you want to do. You'll also save some cash and get guaranteed priority entry to the events you select.

Becoming a Queen Mary Student

Don't miss the Welcome Fair on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd September that will take place across the Mile End campus. It's your opportunity to meet our Clubs and Societies, find out more about our student services and grab freebies from lots of local and national companies who will be at the Fair.

The Reuse Fair will also take place on Saturday 16th September and Sunday 17th September in the Students' Union Hub from 10am until all the items are gone! It's your opportunity to get your hands on free bedding, kitchenware, crockery, room items, stationery and much more. All items were donated at the end of last year to stop usable items going to landfill.

Get Active

Get Active is our recreational sports programme open to everyone. We offer turn up and play sessions, structured courses, one-off events and much more! No specialist equipment or clothing is required to take part.

We know Get Active is a great way to stay fit, meet new people and make new friends so check out our new ticket packages to get involved. You can find out more on our Get Active pages.
