University is about more than studying, which is why we've created a schedule of activities to welcome you to Salford. Our events will help you get settled in to university life.

Our events will be a mixture of face to face and online events. Some you can take part in in your own time and others will be delivered live by our Students' Union. You'll be able to explore different things, pick up a new hobby, or explore different social groups that you're interested in! 

For more details on all of our events, see the events schedule on our StartSmart platform.

Please note: When visiting StartSmart you'll be asked to create an account to view some of the event details. This enables you to personalise your profile, save events you’re interested in, and view additional content to support your start to university life.

Meet people with similar interests

As well as taking part in our events, another great way to meet new people is through our new app, designed specifically for university students.

We’ve partnered with Umii, an app which connects students based on shared interests, course and society preferences, so it’s easy to get to know people even before you start in January.

Simply download the Umii app, set up your profile with your interests, add a quick bio and you are all set. Every day Umii will suggest 3-5 Salford students to connect with and before you know it, you’ll be making friends to meet when you get to campus!
