Welcoming students back to Bath

Posted in: Bath, Newsletter, On campus

Over the past month, we’ve been delighted to welcome new and returning students to Bath. In addition to increased safety measures, as a university we’ve also put a lot of work into giving students the best possible experience.

A new venue, the East Village, recently opened to provide a safe, fun place to socialise on campus. The Students’ Union have worked with local businesses such as Moles and Komedia to bring the best evening entertainment. In addition to in-person activities, the SU are also keeping spirits up online, with virtual pub quizzes and workouts on their Facebook group.

Speaking of entertainment, we’ve got plenty of events coming up – please scroll down for details. Hope to see you online soon!

With best wishes,

Jodie & Emma
