The line-up for the most anticipated week of the University calendar has just been announced. Yep! That’s right we have officially launched our Freshers Week 2018 event line-up! As ever, we’ve put together a week jam-packed with events to suit everyone, so whether you’re an introvert, an extrovert, a raver, or a teetotaler, we’ve got you covered.
What is Freshers Week?
Freshers Week is a week full of social events designed to get new and returning students integrated into the university and university life by meeting new people and familiarising them with the campus and our services. This year our Freshers Week runs from 16th to 23rd September, and kicks off with the Freshers Fest at 18.00 on Sunday 16th and ends on Sunday 23rd with our brand spanking new, Freshers Bar Crawl.
What sort of events can I expect to see?
Expect to see day-time events, night-time events, socials and loads and loads of free stuff. One of the biggest events by far on our Freshers Week Calendar is our Headingley Freshers’ Fair. This is a daytime event where you’ll be able to get bags of freebies and discount vouchers from some of your favourite brands as well as be able to sign up to some of our societies and sports clubs.
We also have our Campus Tea Party, another daytime event where you’ll be able to enjoy an alcohol free social, full of free cake and free hot drinks. We've also got our night-time events, like the Freshers Beach Party which will be hosted by none other than Love Island's 2018 winner Jack Fincham! A full list of our events, times and prices can be found here on our dedicated Freshers site.
Are the events free?
The majority of our Freshers Week events are free, though there are a number of events like our Freshers Beach Party and our Freshers Bar Crawl that come at a cost. That’s where our Freshers Wristband comes in, for only £20 it gives you free entry into four events as well as a FREE T-shirt and a FREE Starbucks.
