What is the Welcome Fair?

We’re expecting more than 10,000 UCL students across the two days. It’s your chance to talk to over 270 Union Sports Clubs, Societies, and student-led Networks. Alongside student-led clubs are a great selection of national and local businesses, ready and waiting with 1000’s of freebies to give you. In the Quad and Wilkins Terrace, will be live entertainment, society demonstrations, performances, music and food!

The Welcome Fair takes place on campus, around the Wilkins Building and main quad. All of these spaces are wheelchair accessible. If you have access needs, either come to the front of the queue (15 Gordon St) where a member of event staff will be able to support you or email us in advance and let us know when you’re planning to arrive and how we could support you. 

We have student volunteers on the day, able to assist students with hearing disabilities. Look out for them at the start of the fair.

The fair can be very busy, if crowded and busy environments prove challenging to you, we recommend either visiting at 10:00 on Saturday or after 15:00 on Sunday as this is typically when the fair is at its most quiet.
