The Welcome Service supports new members of staff relocating to York to take up work at the University.

The service is available whether you are relocating from overseas or from within the UK.

New starter's requesting assistance are assigned a welcomer, each with their own valuable experience and personal knowledge of living and working in York.

Our welcomers' can provide support with a wide range of issues including:

  • Assistance with finding short term accommodation
  • Advice on school catchment areas and admissions processes
  • Help with setting up a UK bank account
  • Insight into transport options around the city and campus

This list is not exhaustive and welcome officers are able to help with a wide range of activities.
