Information Fair

We would have loved to do this on campus with you and have thousands of you in the same room, with pizza, and just generally having a great time. Seeing as we can’t do that though, get yourself a snack, get comfy and take a look at some of the great opportunities we’re bringing you at the information fair this year.

This is almost all EXTRA stuff you can do on top of the GSA Networks, which you can find linked under Welcome 2020 or by following the link in the find out more section. We’re bringing you clubs and university services, so there’s a bit of something for everyone.

Visit the fair!
