Welcome to your Students’ Union – here to provide you with everything you need to make the most of student life!
The University of Portsmouth Students’ Union is a registered charity led by students for students. Your first encounter with UPSU may be through our Freshers’ Week, which is bursting at the seams with events and activities designed to make your first days at university great. Expect loads of opportunities to meet new people, make friends and settle in.
Freshers’ Fayre takes place on Wednesday 19th September at the Union and Ravelin Park from 10am. Make sure you come along and meet all the student-led groups looking for new members (plus the freebies and free Domino’s)!
