The Virtual Welcome Fair

Thursday 24 September 2020
9am - 5pm
Online (our website)

This is it people! It's nearly HERE! That all important start to any university experience – the Welcome Fair (often known as the 'Freshers Fair')

This year, we’re changing it up a little bit. Usually, we would hold the Welcome Fair in your 8 floor Students’ Union building - the Saw Swee Hock Centre. We are committed to ensuring a safe Welcome Fair experience for our students, societies, sports clubs, partners, staff and university colleagues – which is why we’re going virtual this year.

Everything you’d expect to see at a physical fair will be right at your fingertips! A much quicker, safer, efficient, and more accessible Welcome Fair for everyone in the LSE Community.

Not one, but TWO whole days of getting to know your Students' Union and all of it’s student activities and opportunities - from sports clubs, societies, your student representatives, campaigns, initiatives, our brand partners and MUCH MORE! They’ll all be ready, waiting and excited to meet you at their virtual stalls – jump straight into our zoom links or live chat with them and have those all important conversations in real time! And if you can't make it, fear not! You can access the fair at any point once it is live, even after 25th September.

Lots of activities and initiatives have turned digital for the year in the interests of safety, so this is the BEST way to find out how to get involved from home!

We’ve worked really hard to pull this together for you! And we’re confident that you’ll walk away from this years’ Virtual Welcome Fair with the same information and excitement for getting involved in extra curricular activities that you would from the physical fair.

If you want to have the best life outside of lectures, this is the event you need to “virtually” attend on the 24th and 25th September! Here are the details:


Virtual Welcome Fair
