Welcome /Freshers Week is a great opportunity for you to get involved in a variety of activities and events. It is also another good chance to meet other new students and familiarise yourself with the campus facilities and buildings. Look out for events which aim to bring students together in the Welcome Events Programme some of which are may be of interest to you or those specifically aimed at your circumstances. The events programme this year has been curtailed due to the Covid-19 pandemic but we are running many online events which you can join in. DUSA and the Sports Union are also running online activities so check out their information.

The Student Representative Council is one of the oldest student bodies at the University of Dundee and has been responsible for raising the student voice on campus since the University was founded.
The SRC meets 4 times each semester to discuss issues that matter to our students and develop solutions and answers to big questions on campus. You can attend any of their meetings held in DUSA, The Union’s meeting rooms on level 4 and watch the motions in discussion.
Student societies are groups of like-minded students who aim to promote an activity, cause or an interest in a particular culture on campus. It is also the one of the best ways to make new friends, find others from the same culture and make the most out of your university life. Trying a new sport or hobby is a perfect break from the academic pattern of student life.
Peer Connections is the University's welcoming, buddying and mentoring scheme to help all students settle in, show you around, meet, mix and share information and experience with other students.
