Everyone needs a helping hand at university, whether it’s budgeting advice or help finding a job or accommodation. Contact our Advice Centre or take a look as the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
Greenwich and Kent Students’ Unions Together is a partnership between the University of Greenwich Students' Union and Kent Union on the Medway campus.As a student on the Medway campus you get the best of both worlds, as you’re not only a member of GK Unions but of your ‘home’ student union too. Why not come and check out your Student Hub where you can meet the team, grab a bite to eat or have a drink. Plus there is loads of social and study space available.
GK Unions runs and supports the following for students on the Medway campus: The Student Hub, the Advice Centre, Sports Clubs, Societies, Events, Give it a Go activities (like trips to Harry Potter world!) and The Deep End bar and café.
Take the time to get to know people! The people you meet now could be your friends through your time at University, and it’s always great to have a friendly face in the first few weeks.
Maybe you fancy popping down to our new Student Hub, maybe grab a Starbucks coffee or some of our Deep End classic meals.
You should collect your student card from Pilkington Reception during arrivals weekend. This can get very busy so we would suggest getting their early to avoid queues.
Freshers' Fair is your chance to meet and talk to current members of clubs and societies. You can ask any questions you have and sign up to their mailing lists. It is held on Wednesday 19th September in the Student Hub.
Look out for our Welcome Helpers in the bright t-shirts, they can help you unpack and answer any questions you may have!
No, sorry. Only students can attend The Deep End events, so that rules out guests too.
Under no circumstances are under 18’s allowed on the premises, we’d be breaking our licensing laws and we don’t want to get into trouble!
We need to see proof of age ID and Student ID please - don’t bring one without the other or we can’t let you in (and we don’t want to ruin your night!).
Yes, you’re more than welcome to attend events in The Deep End and The Venue, in Canterbury. As long as you are a current student, you are welcome at any event we are holding.
Yes of course - Medway Activities will be running coaches to and from Medway to Canterbury for the Freshers' Ball.
Yes we know, it’s going to be epic! You can purchase tickets online from the Kent Union website and collect from the Student Hub reception and at the Freshers' Fair on Wednesday 20th September.
The Freshers’ Ball is usually a sell-out so we suggest you get your hands on a ticket prior to the event to avoid disappointment. If tickets don’t sell out, they will be available on the door, but buy beforehand to guarantee you don’t miss out.
Of course, we can’t wait to see you there!
Absolutely! You can find out more about the Freshers’ Ball on the Greenwich webiste.
All you need to do is create a guest account on the SUUG website and then you can purchase your tickets. Get them quick before they go!
Of course! If you’ve brought your ticket online, you can still get in by showing us your confirmation email. If you’ve purchased in person at one of our venues, we will have your name on our purchasers list, so definitely bring a form of ID (such as a passport or driving licence) and your University of Greenwich Student ID.
We will have a limited number of tickets available on the door – but these will go quickly. Come early to avoid disappointment if you’re buying on the day!
Definitely – the more the merrier! We’d love to see you there.
NUS cards are available from the Student Hub reception or from NUS.org.uk. Why not find out more over Arrivals Weekend or at your Freshers' Fair.
That’s not a problem, we can take your photo for you at the Student Hub reception when you buy your card.
