Welcome Desks

Welcome Desks


With a Welcome Desk on both campuses, we're never far away if you need us. Our Welcome Desks give you the chance to speak to a friendly face in real time. Our Welcome Desk Assistants will be able to greet you and triage, or answer, any queries you may have. If you need to speak to a full-time member of staff or an Elected Officer, our Welcome Desk Assistants will happily guide you.

There are a number of services you can access via our Welcome Desks. You can purchase society memberships, tickets to events and our TOTUM Vouchers. Both Welcome Desks also offer a while-you-wait printing and binding service, which you can find out more about below. If on College Lane you can also visit our Advice & Support Centre, collect/return any equipment borrowed if you're a society and collect/return the minibus keys if your student group has made a booking online.


Printing & Binding


If you ever need anything to be printed, bound, photocopied, or scanned, simply pop along to one of our Welcome Desks and we'll be happy to help you. Our Welcome Desk Assistants are trained to ensure your work is produced in the highest quality, so you can hand over your work in confidence. Our printing and binding service can be used year-round but is particularly popular when it comes to dissertations or final projects. Take a look at our price list below to calculate how much it will cost you to print and/or bind with your Students' Union.

All students and staff are welcome to use this service at our Welcome Desks. We do ask that your document is available on a USB stick. If this is not possible, we will try to retrieve your document from you via email. Unfortunately, there's nowhere in either office for you to make changes to your document, so please make sure it's ready to print. Where possible, please ensure your document is saved as a PDF to ensure the format of your work is safe

Please note that as deadlines draw closer the Welcome Desks can become very busy with students using this service. Please allow plenty of time for us to print and bind your dissertation or final project for you. There is a high chance you will have to wait, so we recommend that you don't leave it until the day your work is due! We are not able to act as a reference for any late hand-ins
