The Arts SU Welcome Fair is BACK! And, we're making up for the lost time with a TWO DAY experience!

The fairs will be taking place on Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd September at Chelsea College of Arts


What is the Welcome Fair?

It’s your chance to talk to our Sports Clubs, Societies, and student-led networks. Alongside student-led communities, there’s a great selection of national and local businesses, ready and waiting with freebies to give you. So whether you're searching for a club or society to join, looking to find out more information on the Students' Union and student-led campaigns, or simply searching for discounts and offers, you're at the right place!


Who can come to the fair?

The Welcome Fairs are open to all UAL students so whether you're joining us as a new UG or PG student or are a returning student, feel free to come along. 


Is there a cost to coming to the Fair?

No, the Welcome Fair is completely FREE and no need to book in advance!


What time will the fair be taking place? 

The Welcome Fair will be from 10am - 4pm with the first hour from 10am - 11am designated as a quiet/access hour for those students who need some additional space and quiet in order to enjoy the event.
