We want to make your journey to Liverpool Hope University go as smoothly as possible. This page tells you what you need to do before you arrive, and what you can expect in the first few weeks.
The University has a special Arrival Day each semester so that all new students receive a warm welcome and can meet each other. We have lots of staff on all three campuses and at our Halls of Residence to make sure you settle in and have all you need for a great start.
We would like all students to arrive on these special days, but if you can't, just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure we meet you when you get here.
Arrival Day is mainly aimed at students moving into Halls of Residence, but as the University's Induction Week (October) and the International Hub's Orientation Programme (September and January) start straight after Arrivals Day, we would encourage any undergraduate students living off campus to also arrive on the same weekend.
If you are a postgraduate student, your course and Induction week will start a week later, but you are welcome to join us on Arrivals Day and have an extra week to settle in before your course starts.
