Student experience

How will I make friends on campus?

As the autumn term begins, your academic department will introduce you to fellow students on your course, many of whom will become your friends, teammates and classmates.

You’ll take part in a digital-first Welcome Week, introducing you to the hundreds of societies and sports clubs that Warwick has to offer.

  • Welcome Week 2020 will be accessible to all new students.
  • We will offer as much in-person activity as is safe and possible.
  • Events such as the SU Societies and Sports Fairs are likely to be totally online. You can find more details on the Welcome Week webpages.

Warwick SU

Despite restrictions around holding events on campus, Warwick SU societies and sports clubs will still have loads of amazing activities for you to get involved with during term one. The majority of these will be online (early on in the term at least) but they will still be a great way for you to meet new people, try new things and get involved with your SU. From American Football and Underwater Hockey, to Esports and Pantomime, there should be something that everybody can try.

Keep a lookout for more information about all club, society and other SU events online.

How can I talk to other students before I start?

You can visit OurWarwick, where you can communicate with our student bloggers, and join conversations with other Warwick students.


When will campus fully reopen?

We are planning for the full reopening of campus, which includes our retail, entertainment and sporting facilities. You can see our campus timeline for more details.

As these facilities reopen, we will rigorously observe social distancing practices as guided by the UK government and Public Health England.
