FAQs

Students’ Unions are separate to universities and are led by students for students. They exist to represent your needs and interests whilst you are studying. They provide lots of opportunities, activities and events to improve your time at your university.
As a student at Goldsmiths University you are automatically a member of Goldsmiths Students’ Union and can get involved straight away.
Our Welcome Week events begin on Friday 24th September… and we can’t wait to get started! From Postgrad Prosecco, to Trashy Tuesdays, to Gold Fest and of course the Welcome Fair, we’re pretty confident there will be something for everyone. You can check them all out and buy your tickets via our events page now. The following week our student societies, sports teams and communities are hosting their own events - so we hope you’re ready to get involved and give it a go! Perhaps you could try a beginners session with Pole Dance Fitness? Or maybe a Zine Making Workshop with Smiths Magazine is more your kind of thing? We’ll be adding more of those events to our website over the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled and book yourself in for a session when something catches your eye!
We’re charging a small fee for some of our evening events to cover the cost of putting on the event i.e. staffing, but any money generated through Welcome Week events goes straight back into the Students' Union services. If you're unable to afford an event, please get in touch with welcome@goldsmithssu.org. We'll do everything we can to help students who are facing financial hardship have the same Welcome Week as everyone else.
Some of our events have a ticket limit of one per person - to make sure everyone has a fair chance to book their spot, and tickets don't get overbooked and go unused! However we do also have a limited number of tickets on offer for non students (at a slightly higher price) so if there's an event you really want to attend with a friend or flatmate, make sure you buy them as early as possible so you don’t miss out!
It's quite simple actually! All you need to do is create an account on our website. Create your account by clicking the ‘Register’ link at the top of the homepage. If you experience any issues don't hesitate to drop us an email via welcome@goldsmithssu.org, or use the live chat function on the website.
