How to Join a Welcome Group

Welcome Groups are the perfect place to meet new students just like you: here's how to sign up

Join a friendly group of other new students

If you've just started as a new student here, there's a place for you in one of our Welcome Groups. These are online networks led by a student Welcome Ambassador who's been at the University for at least a year. 

Welcome Ambassadors will guide the conversations and give you tips for settling in. They'll share their knowledge of the University, the city and university life, answer questions and point you in the right direction of useful information. They'll organise a meet up at the start of the January term for everyone in your Welcome Group.  

Sign up

Email welcomeambassadors@port.ac.uk. We'll then sign you up to an online meeting space hosted by student welcome ambassadors, where you can:

  • browse useful info about settling in 
  • meet other January-start students
  • chat with the welcome ambassadors to find out more about life in Portsmouth

Before you email us, please check the Slack privacy policy to make sure you're happy for us to use your email address to sign you up. Then look for your email invitation to 'Welcome Ambassadors' from the week beginning 7 January 2019.
