OU students can be found almost everywhere, and getting together is a great way to share the highs and lows of studying!

  • Meet new friends and study buddies
  • Share study tips
  • Find out more about your Association and useful OU services
  • Have fun!

If there isn’t a meet-up running near you, we can help you promote a new event for students in your area through social media and on our website.

If you decide to run a meet-up event let us know and we'll send you a Support Pack for new organisers. For further support email

In the meantime, check out these meet-up tips from veteran student organisers!


Get in touch with local OU students online

To get a feel for where students are keen to meet in your area why not run a poll on your region’s Facebook page, post on your region’s forum (some are livelier than others!) or tweet your local account.
