A new direction, a fresh start, and a completely different environment.

Studying at University can be exciting, and it can also be a little confusing.

Take a look at some of our most frequently asked questions below.

If you still have some questions, you can send us a message at studentunion@aub.ac.uk or get in touch by messaging us on social media.

Clubs, Societies & Networks



We're in the middle of a pandemic; are there events this year?

AUBSU are holding a calendar of online events, to make sure that you can still meet and get to know everyone (and us).
For more information on what we're offering during Freshers and the first term, visit our "What To Expect" section.

We don't recommend buying any tickets for physical events, especially if they are hosted by an external provider.
There is no certainty whether governement regulation will allow these events to go ahead by September, and in the past students have struggled to secure a refund from these type of external events.

Where can I get tickets for events?

Any event we host that requires a ticket can only be purchased or booked online via our website.
Just click HERE to gain quick access to all the ticketed events we currently have on offer for Freshers 2019!

What if an event has sold out?

Some of our events, such as workshops, have a limited number of spaces. This is because these events are pre-booked with an external organiser or have a limited amount of materials available.

If we have any spare tickets, we will make an announcement on social media.
We may have some no-show spaces available, so if you’re super-keen, contact us at the start of the event to double-check.


What if I can no longer attend an event?

If you can’t attend an event for which you have bought a ticket, please let us know.
This means we can reallocate your ticket to someone else.
Tickets are non-refundable, however if you are unsure of anything, please do read our Refund Policy.
It is up to you to make sure you can attend an event to the best of your ability before you purchase a ticket.


Clubs, Societies & Networks


How do I join a sports club or society?

Our website has a long list of clubs, societies and networks that students run throughout the year.
You can join at any time by contacting them directly and signing up for membership.
It can often help to have a chat with them about what they do, before signing up; that way you can make sure it's the right group for you.


What if there isn't a club or society I want to join?

All of our clubs and societies are student-run and student-led.
This means that we don't dictate which groups get set up, and which are missing - that's all dependant on AUB students.
If you think there's something we're lacking, you could create a club or society of your own!
Just grab two friends who'd want to run the group with you, and contact us. We'll give you the forms and the information you need to get started, and we'll be here to guide you throughout the year too.


Are there any events for mature, international, or commuting students?

We try to make all of our events as welcoming as possible to everyone, as well as running several events and campaigns throughout the year for specific student groups. These activities are often led by the representative Executive Officer.
If you're a mature student, international student, or a commuting student and you see something missing from our events and activities, let us know! AUBSU gets better by learning and growing, and we're always happy to hear feedback on how we can improve our provision.

The International department take charge of putting on a wide range of activities to ensure those of you who are coming from far away feel right at home. For any questions about International orientation, please contact international@aub.ac.uk.




What's the deal with being on campus?

The University will be your first port of call for official information about being on campus.
Check your emails and your physical post for updates on how the current lockdown restrictions will shape your on-campus activity.


Where is the nearest Supermarket to campus?

The nearest supermarkets include: Asda, Sainsburys, and Aldi, and you can take a super nice walk straight from campus.
We will be including a full list and map soon.
