Students arrive at UCLan

Students have arrived at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) as they prepare for the new academic year.

Students and their families were welcomed by a range of entertainment as the students collected their keys and moved into their new halls of residence.

UCLan’s Samba Drummers provided musical background and free ice cream, pick n mix and a BBQ kept energy levels high.

UCLan’s Student Wellbeing Ambassadors, Students’ Union (SU) and members of various University sports teams, including members from the cheerleading and American Football squads, were on hand to help carry bedding, pots, pans and creature comforts into their new accommodation.

Professor Graham Baldwin, UCLan Vice-Chancellor, said: “Welcoming both our new arrivals and returning students back to our fantastic campuses is always one of the highlights of our year.

“This period signifies the start of an exciting new chapter in our students’ lives, and we know they can’t wait to start their studies and to make new, lifelong friends.”

The University’s Welcome Week timetable ensures there are many activities to help the new students settle into life away from home.

The popular Freshers’ Fair, Societies’ Fair, Sports’ Fair and Craft & Food Fair all return while a Stranger Things Roller Disco, Hip Hop Ping Pong, Comedy Night, Drag Karaoke, Film Night, Bingo Lingo and Silent Disco are some of the activities taking place. Teaching starts next week.
