Organising opportunities to meet up with other Friends, to catch up and reminisce and to hear from NUS about its current activities is a core part of the work of Friends of NUS.

We commit to two events each year: a reception in London in the autumn and a further reception at National Conference in April, which moves to a new city every two years. We also encourage Friends to organise their own reunions and meet-ups – if you do let us know and we can advertise it on this site.

Upcoming events

The Friends of NUS Committee have agreed to hold two events for Friends in 2019/20. The first will be a reception in London, to be held on Tuesday 11 February 2020, in line with the desire to move the annual reception so it is held on or close to NUS’s official birthday (10 February). It will be held at the Institute Bar at UCL SU, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1X 0HG, starting at 6pm.

Secondly, a reception will be held at National Conference in Liverpool on Tuesday 31 March 2020. Further detail of this reception will be circulated in due course.
