Settling into university can be an overwhelming experience. Whether you’re from a different country or county, buddy(su) is designed to help UEA feel like a second home. All our trained volunteers are already students from UEA who have completed at least one year of study. These peers can help students struggling with university life, and are matched according to their needs, circumstances and interests - such as area of study and hobbies. From helping attend clubs and societies, to going for coffee around campus, buddy volunteers help combat loneliness and ensure everyone feels like they belong.

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!
