Winter Welcome 2020

Winter Welcome is the perfect way to settle into life at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) – and a great introduction to your new student community!

What is Winter Welcome?

Winter Welcome is a series of informal events designed to welcome you to NTU – and Nottingham – throughout your first few weeks here. It's for anyone starting a new course this January or February – whether you've studies here before or are new to NTU.

There will be plenty of opportunities to make friends with like-minded people and to meet and learn from those of other backgrounds and cultures – all the events are free to attend but you may want to bring some money with you to some of them (like the City Walk) just in case.

Events and meet-ups

There's a range of events that will run throughout your first few weeks with us – from 13 January until 14 February 2020. A lot of these events are repeated weekly, but we encourage you to attend as many as you'd like to.

These activities are open to all – so come along and get to know your new student community!

Make sure to check the campus each activity is taking place on to ensure you can factor in your travel time.
