Whether you want to find a new hobby to pursue, explore a new place, take a mindful break from your studies, or just have fun with your friends, there is a Do Something Different activity that will work for you.



What is Do Something Different?

Do Something Different is an extracurricular programme delivered by the Students’ Union, with the support of the UEA, to enhance your time at university. Most DSD events will be run online during the first semester of the 2020-21 academic year. Watch this website for further details on how each of these events will work.


Is Do Something Different free? 

The majority of DSD activities are free to enable all students to partake, this also applies to the online events that we will be running over the next semester.  


How do I go to a Do Something Different event?

All you need to do to attend a DSD event is find the activity you want to go to, either via our calendar or on our 'Go to an event' page, and book your ticket online. It's as simple as that! 

Please note that there are very few events to book onto at the moment as the semester is yet to start. When it has there will be more events advertised, though most of them with be online events.


We hope you have a great time doing different!
