Welcome to Buddy Up! An initiative (originally coined ‘The Companion Scheme’) designed to support students in staying connected.

The premise is really simple - send us a few details and we match you up with a new friend at UAL! 

We match UAL students in pairs, based on a few preferences that you provide us with when you sign-up. We will send you both an introduction email and after that, it’s up to you! You can email, video call, swap phone numbers or meet in person… whatever works best for you both.

Take a look at our FAQ below for some more details and sign up when you are ready!
