Welcome to the University of Birmingham! Welcome 2023 begins with Arrivals Weekend on Saturday 16 September, and we are here to help you settle in as you say 'Hello Brum'.

Whether you're joining us for the first time or returning on a postgraduate course, we've put together lots of useful information and resources to help you get ready for your time here. As we get closer to September, we will update these pages with all the useful information you need for starting your studies here at Birmingham, including our Welcome induction and orientation activities. Welcome is a good opportunity to settle in, make new friends, discover Birmingham (aka Brum), and to feel prepared for your studies.

Welcome Week 2023 will begin on Monday 18 September 2023, with Arrivals Weekend (the main time for moving into accommodation) on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September.

Make sure you also check your inbox and follow our socials (@unibirmingham) for the latest information, advice and guidance from current students plus lots more.
