Welcome Team

Welcome Team will be around throughout Freshers’ Week in their pink t-shirts to help you settle in and answer any questions you may have! From their Meet and Greet in the Ram to their campus tours, they’ll be ready to show you around and share their experience of University life at Exeter.

Arrivals Weekend

Volunteers will meet you when you arrive at your accommodation, help you collect your keys and then show you to your new room. If you have any questions about your accommodation, or where things are located, don’t hesitate to ask them! They’ll also have Freshers’ Packs on hand, with all the information you’ll need about events, societies and the Students’ Guild.
