Welcome Week

Wow, what a summer. The World Cup. Fortnite. Love Island. Heatwaves and hosepipe bans. Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa. And now it's almost time for you to start uni. The summer might be winding down, but the real fun ... well, that's just about to begin. See you soon.

Welcome to campus. Welcome to Hull!

We can't wait to welcome you to the University of Hull. To help you get set for your arrival, here are a few key dates for your diary. This information applies to all new students.

Online enrolment

Late August/early September

As a new student, you'll receive an email letting you know that you can now complete the first stage of your enrolment. We'll only send you this email once your application has met all its conditions. Online enrolment involves completing each section of the online form, confirming your payment details and agreeing to our terms and conditions. You'll need to finalise your enrolment by coming to an 'In Person' enrolment event on campus. The time of your 'In Person' event will be on your induction schedule.

You can find out more about enrolment – including the types of identification we accept, and information for our international students – elsewhere on the site, such as the FAQs page.


From late August

e-Induction is an online programme with a range of information that'll help you prepare for your arrival. Once you've got a confirmed place at the University, we'll email you an e-Induction link.

Teaching timetable released

Monday 3 September

On 3 September, your timetable becomes available. You can download the iHull app for quick and easy access, or view it online. Alternatively, you can visit your online timetable.

Moving in

Friday 14 September (Taylor Court and student houses)

Saturday 15 September (The Courtyard and Westfield Court)

Welcome to Hull! At this point, you'll be moving into your home for your first year at uni. Our team will be around on the day to help your move go as smoothly as possible.

Please note: if you're living at the above accommodation, you'll need to complete the fire safety and accommodation modules on e-Induction in advance. You have to complete them before we can hand over your key.

If you've got any questions, queries or concerns on moving day, please speak to a member of staff. Those are the folks in pink t-shirts who'll be hovering around with "happy to help" type expressions on their faces. (Not literally hovering, mind. That would be super weird.)



Saturday 15 – Friday 28 September

WelcomeFest, our students' union’s two-week celebration begins!

This first fortnight is full of activities for new students. You can see the full line up on Hull University Union’s website and the WelcomeFest app for Apple iOS or Android.

Welcome Week

Monday 17 – Friday 21 September

Welcome Week is dedicated to all new students. You'll attend central University and faculty induction sessions and you'll be able to take part in a range of activities run by HUU, Campus Sport and ResLife. Your faculty will contact you about their induction sessions.

Key dates:

'In Person' enrolment

w/c 17 September onwards

'In Person' enrolment is the final step to becoming a University of Hull student. Your induction schedule (see above) will tell you what time you'll need to attend the enrolment event. Please bring proof of your identity along, as well as details about how you're going to pay for your course.

Student loans

w/c 17 September

The Student Loans Company don’t release your first loan payment until you’ve enrolled. So that's another reason it’s so important! You should receive your loan 3–5 days after your enrolment's been finalised. If your payment's delayed, you can get in touch with the Student Loans Company. And if you need financial help in the meantime, talk to our Financial Support Team – they might be able to help.

Teaching begins

Monday 24 September

This is the day that your course officially starts! You’ll probably find that your first lecture isn't until the following week, but your school will have useful activities and meetings planned to help you settle in. From term times to exam periods, make yourself aware of the key dates during your first year.

Need further information after Welcome Week or missed Welcome Week?

First of all, don't panic! We're holding an event at Middleton Hall on 17 October (11 am – 4 pm), where you can meet some of our service teams and find out how they can support your student experience. You'll be able to talk to people from the Skills Team, Student Wellbeing, Learning and Welfare Support, Campus Sport and many more. We'll contact you about this event nearer the time.

What can you do to prepare for uni?

  • Register with a GP. If you’re moving to Hull, the University requires you to register with a doctor's surgery here. The sooner you get registered, the better – always a good move to have medical assistance available if you need it!

    The easiest way to find a GP near you is to visit the NHS Choices website and enter the postcode of your student accommodation.
  • Ensure that you're vaccinated. Public Health England strongly encourages new students to be vaccinated with Meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY) vaccine. Make sure you get the vaccination from your GP before you start university.
  • International – if you've applied for a Tier 4 student visa, you can collect your Biometric Residence Permit card at enrolment. You also need to register online with the Police in the UK.
  • Complete your online enrolment
  • Complete your e-Induction
  • Checklists will be your best friend – they'll help you make sure you're all set to start uni life
