How do I join the Students' Union?

Congratulations! All registered students at CCCU at are automatically members of Christ Church Students’ Union, so you don't need to do anything to join. Bonus!


What is Freshers'?

Freshers’ Week gives all new students a warm welcome, the chance to settle in, meet new people and familiarise yourself with your new surroundings before the term starts. It's also a chance for current students to get involved and welcome you into the Christ Church community.


When does Freshers' Week officially start?

We have thousands of new students starting in September 2020 and your start date will depend on what course and campus you're on. You will get information via email as to when your induction week starts and when you are expected to arrive.

Most students will be arriving for the week 19th-25th September so that is when the bulk of Freshers' Week activities will take place. There will be events earlier in September too so please check out the events page.


How can I meet other students?

We’ve organised both virtual and on campus events that give you the perfect opportunity to meet lots of other students. Just because you can't always be in the same room doesn't mean you can't make friends and connect via our social media channels. Have you joined our Christ Church Online Student Community?


Are events in line with government guidlines and social distancing?

We have and continue to work hard to ensure all events we are offering are safe and inline with government and university guidelines. 


How can I join a society or sports club?

Make sure you visit the relevant pages on this website to find out more and also put the date of the Virtual Freshers' Fayre in your diary.
