Frequently Asked Questions

Who can join the Welcome Crew?

Awesome people only! (Yes, that means you!)

Any current Staffordshire University Student is welcome to join our Crew.

What can I expect to be doing?

Anything and everything to ensure that new and returning students enjoy a fantastic Welcome to Staffs.

You could find yourself helping people move-in (whilst recommending which Denver Fries from Verve is the best. American right?). You could end up encouraging people to join you as you head to move-in party, have a absolutely amazing time and then helping them find their way back home after dark. You could take a lead on a Union resourced event, perhaps helping out with Nesta's amazing creatures from Nesta's Ark, zapping your time away in Lasertag or even travelling away to local attractions such as Alton Towers.

Ultimately, how you join in is down to you. We've got a role to suit everyone in our Crew.

I have a disability, can I take part?

Yes, of course!

Please inform us of anything we need to know to make sure you can take part safely and comfortably - so long as you do that, we'll make sure you'll have an amazing time.

Does this involve training?

Nope. We just need awesome people, like you, to be yourselves.

Each day will include a quick briefing to cover all necessary safety details and to make sure everyone is happy with what's going on.

However, if you take a lead role on an event, we may ask you to come in and meet with a member of the SU team in advance.

When do you most need me?

Our biggest challenge is making sure that Move-in Weekend is amazing, as hundreds of students will be moving into their new homes on campus before saying their goodbyes to Mum and Dad and having an incredible night at LRV.

Move-in weekend is Saturday 14th Sept 2019 and Sunday 15th Sept 2019.

Who can I contact for more information?

The Student Engagement Team are always here to help. Give us a call on 01782 294687, drop us an email at or drop in to the Students' Union Offices above Ember Lounge between 10 and 4 on a weekday.
