Those pesky zombies are back at Magee for Derry Halloween.

On Halloween itself, Monday, October 31, campus bars will show horror movies, host DJs, and serve themed cocktails and food to get students in the mood.

Ulster University is eager to offer students from all campuses the opportunity to fool themselves or treat themselves to the historic and world-famous Halloween and Samhain festivities in Derry City.

Leading up to this year’s events, Professor Thomas Maguire, head of the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, said:

“Ulster University is delighted to once again participate in the iconic Derry Halloween Festival this year. We have a packed schedule on our Magee and Coleraine campuses that we hope will showcase the creativity and wide range of talents of our students.

“Our spooky showcase will feature an immersive zombie apocalypse experience with the help of our amazing Drama and Music students, a giant inflatable robot inspired by our Computing, Engineering and Intelligent Systems students, as well as events at the Riverside Theater in Coleraine – including an expert panel on all things gothic, witchcraft and folk horror.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to what is sure to be a terrifyingly fun experience for everyone.”

Professor Jim Harkin, Head of the School of Computing, Engineering and Intelligent Systems, said: “The School of Computing, Engineering and Intelligent Systems at Ulster University is delighted to once again make our mark on the Halloween festivities this year.

“The Nao robot will be on display at our Magee campus, you will be able to find it outside the computer building of the computer school. There’s definitely a real buzz on campus and we’re really looking forward to immersing ourselves in all things Halloween this year.

“The celebrations on our campuses will feature many tricks and treats for the local community and we encourage everyone of all ages to join in and join in to experience Halloween at Ulster University.”
