Essentials: Training and Time Commitment


So you can understand your role and meet the rest of the team, it is compulsory that all volunteers attend training on Tuesday 17th September (times TBC).

During Welcome Weekend (20th– 22nd September) we ask that volunteers give up at least 5 hours of their time per day to help with daytime or night-time arrivals and activities.

During Freshers Week (23rd-29th September), we ask for volunteers to give up at least 5 hours of their time to help with daytime or night time activities.


Beyond Freshers! Get involved with the year ahead...

Throughout the rest of the year are plenty of other events and activities you can help with and you’ll be kept up to date as to when they’re happening. It’s completely up to you how much time you give up and which activities you choose after Freshers Week. Just choose the activities that are of most interest to you!
