    This may be a really stupid question however .....


    Does freshers week start the week of the accommodation contract? Ive just been wondering if my course starts on the 26th and accommodation contract will start on the 25th, will freshers week be the week before that? Or will it be that week?

    Thanks

    Freshers' Week starts on the 25th, your course won't start until a week after that.

    Fresher's Week was awesome, this year hopefully I'm gonna be a Fresher Rep at Glen Eyre to help make Freshers bloody awesome. There's events everyday on campus and at Glen, also Fresher's week at clubs in town are awesome. You might be lucky like I was and not have any induction until the thursday after freshers, plenty of time to get to know people and let your liver recover :P

    See you all in Freshers!!

    You'll move in on either Sat 24th (ensuite) or Sun 25th (non-ensuite).

    International Freshers Week is before this.

    The first week, Mon 26th to Sun 2nd, is Fresher's Week - but you will also have a variety of introductory sessions, depending on your course. No lectures! I do Geography and there was around 4 - all rather pointless but compulsory sessions - mainly all about skills and making friends

    Monday 3rd is when lectures and the main stuff really begins.

    If Fresher's Week is anything like last years, you'll have 2 welcome parties - one on Sat and one on Sun. Your Halls JCR will organise events every day all week. There'll be 1 or 2 other SUSU events in the Cube, probably Wed & Fri. Bunfight (to showcase all the clubs & societies) was on the Tues and Freshers Fayre on Thurs.... I think...

    Freshers Fayre? Societies? Getting to know your flat mates? Orientation? Intros?

    In uni there is something for everyone, whether your a drinker or not.

    Your halls JCR will arrange an event every day for the first two weeks for everyone to get to know each other. There will be nights out, BBQs, sports & general getting-to-know-you sessions.

    The union will have nights out as well as freshers fayre (don't miss you want free stuff! eg pizza, energy drinks, sweets, food) and the bunfight which is sign up for societies.

    Get involved with your flat, meet new people and have the best 2 weeks of your life!
