Meet the parents: Receptions for freshers' families this weekend

Parents of new students can find out about the University at family receptions on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 October.

If you’re dropping your son or daughter off at Leicester this weekend ready for the start of their first term on Monday, why not take the opportunity to come along to one of our Family Programme receptions on Saturday or Sunday for tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat?

The Vice-Chancellor will be there, along with our Student Welfare Officer, to reassure that we’ll take good care of your offspring while they’re studying with us. And our Director of Development will be on hand to explain about the Family Programme which can keep you involved with the University.

Receptions take place in the Charles Wilson Building (pictured) in the centre of campus at 2.00pm, 2.30pm, 3.00pm, 3.30pm and 4.00pm on both days. Please book a time using this form, then we’ll know how many hobnobs and custard creams to put out.

While you’re here, you can take the opportunity to look round the campus, including the David Wilson Library and our shiny new Students’ Union Building. Why not have lunch in the brand new 1923 restaurant?
