Wallplanner

Each year we give away over 10,000 A2 Wallplanners to our students, and they are one of our most popular Welcome Week giveaways. These are distributed in Welcome Packs, at our Students’ Union Reception & Retail points and placed in all University Halls of Residence kitchens.

The Wallplanners feature social, sports and other key dates in the QMSU Calendar. We are offering opportunities for your key dates to be featured in our calendar – such as the launch of your Winter Collection in a Retail company, or dates of a student discount you are planning to run. If specific dates isn’t what you’re after we can alternatively include your company logo on our Wallplanner.
