What is DSD?

University is about getting a great education, trying new things and having fun every day.

This is the point of 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. Whether you want to find a new hobby to pursue, 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.

We offer DSD activities every single day in a range of different areas. From arts and crafts, games and sports, to trips outside of Norwich, we hope to offer you something new to try that is exciting, great value for money and something a bit different.

We strive to make the majority of DSD activities 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. All you need to do to attend a DSD event is find the activity you want to go to, either via our calendar below or on our Go to an event page, and book your ticket online.

We hope you have a great time doing different!
