The programme of activities and sessions will be interactive and enjoyable, where you will get to spend some quality time with new people.


  • The deposit – This year we introduced a refundable deposit to get a better idea of numbers. But we’ve listened to your feedback and removed the deposit to make booking as easy as possible! If you’ve already paid, we’ll refund you next week.  

  • Working the Open Day? – You can still sign up if you are working the Open Day on Saturday 8th September, we’ll pick you up at 5pm outside Union House, so that you can come and enjoy the rest of the residential, just in time for the BBQ! Simply email to let us know you’re coming on the later bus. 

  • Not knowing anyone – Don’t worry if your mates aren’t coming, the whole weekend is all about helping you meet other staff, committees and reps! We’re putting on loads of easy icebreakers and activities so by the end of the weekend you should know everyone!

Tickets for this event are on a first come first served basis and are dependent on your main volunteer or staff role, to ensure we get a fair variety of attendees.

Coaches to the centre will leave campus at 9am on Saturday 8th September and we will leave Hautbois at 5pm on the Sunday expecting to be back at campus for 6pm. If you are concerned about access requirements, the Union have taken this into consideration and the venue does have accessible rooms and facilities. We also have secured a prayer space.
