Here at York, we have tailored support for different groups of students.

We offer a range of services for these communities to help every student get the most out of their university experience. Find out about further support available to members of these communities.

Events for Student Communities

One of the benefits of being part of a student community is being able to access the programme of events we hold throughout the year. You can find out about upcoming events open to student communities in our fortnightly Student Communities newsletter and through our social media. 

If you don't currently receive our fortnightly newsletter and believe you belong to one of the Student Communities listed above please email and we will add you to the mailing list.

University Jargon A-Z 

This University Jargon A-Z has been put together by current students for new students. We hope it helps to explain some of the new terms you will come across when your first start studying at the University of York.
