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. From exercise classes at the sportspark, trips around the country, and arts and crafts sessions, we run a Do Something Different activity everyday on and off campus.

We run Do Something Different programmes to celebrate various times of the year. This year we are running DSD Does Halloween, including ghost walking, 12 Days of Different, featuring various festive crafts and wintery activites, and of course, the Do Something Different Festival which promises to be the biggest and best it has ever been, the festival runs from 17th-23rd February 2020. For more information on the Festival, please click here


Is Do Something Different free? 

The majority of DSD activities are free to enable all students to partake. However, for some of our bigger events we ask for a payment to partially cover the costs of transportation and tickets. We always subsidise where we can.   


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! 


We hope you have a great time doing different!
