Updates and FAQs

Lots of students are in touch with us about what is happening next academic year. The truth at the moment is we're not sure!, but we feel like it's important to be transparent and keep you all informed. Here's what we know so far...

The University campus will be open in September for teaching and research to take place. However, we know lots of you are concerned about how it will work, what online teaching might look like and how to be productive if you're studying at home. We've compiled all of your feedback and sent it to the University with some key recommendations:

  • Ensure that any changes to modules are communicated early, and without additional or extra costs;
  • Improve student communications, with a key contact to answer enquiries;
  • Outline specific plans for returning to campus, reassuring those who are currently abroad, and those who are shielding themselves or family members;
  • Ensure that students relying on public transport have options for flexiblity.

Q. Does this mean Freshers' Week will be different?

We know this isn’t how you planned to make your grand entrance to university, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fill your schedule with fun things to do.

It doesn’t matter if you’re planning to commute or sorting out your student accommodation, September is where we get to show you how we can make your life better. We’ll introduce you to campus in true Huddersfield Uni style with our virtual Welcome Festival!

Whatever Freshers looks like this year, there’s sure to be tonnes of opportunities to meet new people and make friends, as well as bag yourself some free stuff from local businesses and customise your uni experience with our wide range of Sports Clubs and Societies

We’re still tweaking this years’ programme but keep an eye on our social media and website and the full schedule will be dropped on Results Day!

Q. Should I book accommodation for September?

The University will not be releasing timetables until much nearer the start of Term 1 in September. We would suggest getting in touch with the HudLets team, who will be making ti clear whether your contract has any flexiblity in..
