Buddy SU logo


Settling into university can be an overwhelming experience. Whether you’re from a different country or county, buddy(su) is designed to offer you support during your transition to UEA by matching you with a buddy(su) volunteer, a current UEA student who has been at UEA for at least one academic year. Matches are made by school of study or hobbies and interests.

From helping attend clubs and societies, to going for coffee around campus, buddy(su) volunteers help combat loneliness and ensure everyone feels like they belong at UEA.

Whether you want to know the best place to study on campus, learn a new skill or meet new people, there’s no one better to help than a buddy(su) volunteer!
