Everything you need to know for Spring semester
Last updated: 16 January 2020
Welcome back to University! We've put together this guide for you with information on our events, how to stay updated on society news and how to get in touch.
Our events this semester
Like last semester, all of our events will be held online through Teams and Discord. We're sad we can't meet you in person but it's just not possible to run physical events right now, so we'll be virtual for a wee while yet. To make it easier for you to find events you want to attend, we've published our full event schedule for the semester here. We've also grouped our events into general activities/types so you can get more of an idea what each event is about. Full details on how to attend each event will be posted on our events page before the scheduled start time, so make sure to check back regularly.
How to stay updated
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to get the information you need about what's happening. We provide a few ways for you to stay in the loop. One of the best ways to keep updated is to follow us on social media, see the icons for links to our socials! We also have a Facebook group for LGBTQ+ students at the University and a Spotify profile where you can discover some of the best queer artists around.
Another good way of staying up-to-date is to subscribe to our monthly newsletter. Each month we'll send you an email with updates on what's on and other fun happenings.
