Welcome to UEA!

Dear students,

Welcome to UEA! We are super happy to have you here as one of our UEA family. 

And a big welcome home for returners! We are very excited to see you again on Campus.

We know that we have all experienced this difficult time but we are here now. It’s also been a long journey for you, but here is a new chapter of your life waiting for you.

The SU has been preparing loads of things for you before you start your course. Hopefully you’ve checked out the clubs and societies at the Digital Fair, explored the campus and got to know us at SU. Your safety is our main priority and we are taking seriously the guidance the Government has recommended. Remember to download the NHS track and trace app. If you are concerned about something, please contact our Advice team or student services.

For everything Welcome, check out our webpage. It will be updated every day so don’t miss out on the fun.

At uea(su), we have five full time student officers, each with a different role:

Lizzie Payne – Activities & Opportunities Officer
Hamish Williams – Campaigns & Democracy Officer
Ayane Hida – Postgraduate Education Officer
Callum Perry – Undergraduate Education Officer
Em Anderson – Welfare, Community & Diversity Officer

Each officer has a Facebook page, and don’t forget to follow the SU FB page!

If you have any questions, please do feel free to drop us a message through any of our pages.

Or if you want to ask a specific question, for example about housing, academic issues etc., please feel free to ask our kind advice team!

I’m sure that you will be able to find your future friends here!

I’ll share with you two of my favourite quotes:

“It’s never too late to become who you want to be. I hope you live a life that you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over.”
– from the movie The Curious case of Benjamin Button
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one!”
– C.S. Lewis

Have a great year ahead! We’re looking forward to seeing you virtually and face-to-face soon!
