With a new year comes new opportunities, and that's what the UofG January Welcome is all about!
Formerly known as 'Re-freshers', for the newly branded 'January Welcome' the Students’ Representative Council (SRC) will be getting together with clubs and societies to host events throughout the month to either welcome you back to University after the holidays, or welcome you to Glasgow for the very first time!
The January Welcome is open to all new and returning students at the University of Glasgow, with inclusivity at the heart of everything we do. We can't wait to welcome you all and share everything we love about living and studying here in Glasgow!
A full line-up of events will be shared on this site before the end of this semester and you'll be able to sign up to events over the holidays. Keep up with what we're doing and be the first to receive updates by following us on our social media channels: @uofgwelcome (Facebook , Instagram , Twitter).

I have more questions about SRC events - who can I talk to?
Are Under 18s Permitted to Attend SRC Events?
For 90% of SRC 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.
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 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.
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 Glasgow Student Events and the UofG Welcome.
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.
