Annual Events at UEA's Student Union...

  • Student Transformation Weekend - Our hugely popular residential trip for all of our student leaders (Course reps, committee members, staff). The residential is full of hands-on skill workshops and fun team building and networking exercises.
  • Freshers - The biggest and best line up in the UK - Experience the amazing nightlife that Norwich has to offer, whilst getting to know more about the opportunities available to you through Societies, Clubs and campaigns.
  • Pimp my Barrow - The most anticipated event of the year. The whole student community come together in an amazing fancy dress celebration in aid of charity.
  • Go Global - The biggest international event of the year. Travel the world in Union House and immerse yourself in the fantastic food, performances and displays from our Cultural Societies.
  • STAR's - The end of year award and recognition event. This is where we recognise the hard work that our Societies, campaigners and student staff have accomplished that year.
