Welcome Week 2019 will be our biggest and best so far!
Our week-long programme of events includes opportunities to meet new people, make new friends and have fun in your first week in the University of East London.
Some events are free with no booking required, some events are free with advance booking required and some events require a ticket. Detailed information on all ticketing is available at the bottom of this page.
Events are restricted to UEL students only.
How to buy tickets
To buy tickets, you must activate your account on our website. Your account details are the same as those for the University. However, there is a short delay between enrolling with the University and your account being created on our site. This is an automated process which happens overnight. If you complete your enrolment with the University on, for example, Monday, your account on our website will be available to use on Tuesday morning.
If you have already completed University enrolment online, you can activate your account by going to our log in page and answering the questions there.
If you have any problems when activating your account, please send your name, email address, University ID number and an explanation of how far you have gone in the activation process to firstname.lastname@example.org . Include screenshots if relevant. Do not send your password.
Introduction to academic societies
These events are to introduce you to your new academic/subject-based societies. Academic societies are one of the best ways to meet people, do something you enjoy without the pressure of being assessed on it, develop new skills and broaden your knowledge about your subject area outside the classroom. All of these things contribute towards your learning and to getting a good job at the end of your course.
Tickets are not required for these events. Locations for all academic society events will be published here soon.
