Say hello to the UofG Welcome, Freshers' Week just got even bigger and better.
Traditionally, Freshers’ Week has been a time to welcome new 1st year students to the University with a week of fun events and activities. The past year has been incredibly difficult for everyone, and we recognise that it’s not just new students who need to feel welcomed at the University, it’s everyone!
That's why we've expanded Freshers' Week under the new banner of the UofG Welcome. From Freshers to Postgraduates, to returning 2nd years, to visiting international students: the UofG Welcome is all about creating an inclusive atmosphere for all students starting back at the University this September.
The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) and Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA) have worked alongside clubs and societies to create a programme of events and activities that includes the standard concentrated week of events (Sunday 12th – Friday 17th September) but also extends beyond to include a whole month of fun throughout September!
Below you can browse events, sign up for free tickets, and opt-in to receive reminders about future Welcome events.
We can't wait to welcome you this September!

What is native?
Native is a student events discovery platform that aims to deliver the best experiences to students. Our website and app show events in your city and now we power experiences like University of Glasgow Freshers' Week 2020.
This year we are supporting the Student Union community through the Coronavirus Pandemic by providing an out-of-the box virtual events solution, in addition to top quality online and socially-distanced events for freshers programmes.
Will UofG Welcome events be accessible for me?
We strive to make our events as accessible as possible.
For enquiries about disability access and support, please get in touch with the Disability Service at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0141 330 5497.
The McIntyre Building and Gilchrist Postgraduate Club are all accessible - as is the Main Building and Stevenson Gym. For more information on the accessibility of campus, head to the University's website.
Are Under 18s Permitted to Attend UofG Welcome Events?
For 90% of SRC and GUSA events your age won't matter as our events do not tend to involve entering licensed premises (a bar). In the event that our events do take place in a licensed premises we will make you aware via the event description.
QMU and GUU's buildings contain bars, so for their physical events there are some restrictions. We recommend contacting the Unions for further guidance or checking their Freshers' Week site: https://www.uofgfreshers.co.uk/
Will my data be shared with anyone other than native?
When purchasing a ticket, you will be given the option to opt-in to future event marketing from Glasgow University Students' Represntative Council (SRC). If you choose not to opt-in, you will only be contacted by the SRC or GUSA (Glasgow University Sports Association) for the purposes of essential communications regarding the event you have signed up for i.e. to notify you of a venue change or cancellation.
