Accommodation Drop-ins - Every Tuesday

Across all accommodations, we will be hosting events every Tuesday that will give students the chance to talk to each other, have a chat with one of our team, and do some fun activities. For example, on the 22nd of October we will be in Panns Bank and Scotia Quay, where you can come and join us for pumpkin carving, decoration making, or just a quick cuppa!

Check the AboutUS Calendar for further dates.

Global Friendship Evening - Every Tuesday Evening

Every Tuesday 19.00 - 21.00pm, we host a Global Friendship Evening in which both international students and UK students can converse, play games, and help themselves to free pizza. Come along for a safe space to learn English, talk with friends, and meet some new unforgettable people!
