** Taking place over 2 days - 24 and 25 September **

The biggest event to kick start your University year is here! 🎪

Join us on the Downs for festival vibes ✨ and your chance to sign up to everything you want to get involved in this year ✍

Meet all our student groups ⚽ find out about volunteering or joining a network and get a load of freebies and discounts from our commercial stalls 🤑

Don't forget to check out our Give it a Go arena for a taste of what our student groups have to offer!

On the day you can expect plenty of food and drink vendors, plenty of portaloos which will be cleaned regularly, hand sanitiser stations across the site and water refill stations (so bring an empty reusable bottle!).

The best part is that it's all free!

Quiet hour available from 10-11am.

Photography and videography will take place at this event - if you don't want to be featured in any Bristol SU promotional material please make yourself known to a member of Bristol SU staff on the day.

Your Welcome Fair Checklist

✅  You will need to bring your U-Card, if you have not collected this yet then please bring your registration confirmation email.

✅  You must bring one of the following which will be checked on entry: 

▪️ Proof of a registered negative rapid lateral flow or PCR test taken in the last 24 hours. This can be the official text or email. (Order tests / Collect tests from campus / Report your result
▪️ Proof of double Moderna / Oxford - AstraZeneca / Pfizer - BioNTech vaccination (or single Janssen vaccination) via the EU app, International vaccine document or NHS app.
▪️ Proof of natural immunity following a positive PCR test within the last 180 days.


✅  Dress for whatever the weather! While much of the fair will take place inside marquee tents, parts of the site are outside and on uneven ground – it may get muddy if it rains. 

✅  Bring a reusable water bottle or keep cup! We have water refill points on site and plenty of food and drink traders to buy a cup of tea or coffee.

✅  Don't forget your face mask – we recommend wearing a facemask when you’re inside or anywhere particularly crowded. 

✅  Register for the Bristol SU Welcome Fair web app – The app will count you down to the start of the Welcome Fair on Friday – from which point you’ll be able to browse and search through every student group at the fair, sign up to mailing lists and more. This will help to limit contact at the fair and saves on unnecessary paper waste!
