I went clubbing the very first night I moved in. I got absolutely smashed and my flat mate carried me home....still best mates now :p:

TV & Beer sounds like a good plan OP, and I like the shaking hands...nice introduction.

Would it be unsociable to arrive on the day before the official move-in date? (I may have to.) Because then I'd already be unpacked so would be just kind of standing there doing nothing!

I would be a bit like WTF if someone was shaking hands. I'd think thats a bit strange and posh or soemthing.

Just say hi and stuff!

On not reading the content of the OP and just going of the title -

...of christmas my true love gave to me. A partridge in a pear tree

On the second day of christmas my true love gave to me two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the third day of christmas my true loves gave to me three french, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the four day of christmas my true love gave to me four colly birds, three french hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fifth day of christmas some bloke called Tf tells you - on first day do normal stuff. Say hello, unpack stuff and go out for a few drinks with your new housemates. Doesn't matter who they are, chat learn some common ground (Music is an excellent common interest pointer) and get to know them, if you fancy shaking hands fair enough, but it's not prescribed. Although it can be quite cool, that's why I do it -

Five gold rings. Four colly birds, three french hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear treeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.. .."
wtf is a colly bird???

When you're unpacking etc, and you go knocking on people's rooms, if you're a guy... do you shake other people's hands?

What if it's a girl in the room? Do you shake their hand too?

Also, what if I were to invite a few people round to watch TV/have a few beers? Would that be awkward? Should I do it in the evening when everyone's sort of acquainted? What about clubs and stuff, do people go clubbing in Fresher's week quite a lot?

Damn my parents for giving me such an awkward upbringing. >_> There's going to be plenty more questions where that came from btw.
With guys a general, 'how you doing mate?' will suffice without having to shake hands or anything, and with girls just a casual hug, and yeah clubbing's virtually the only thing you'll do in freshers.

Ehh? Nothing wrong with a welcoming handshake! As long as it's delivered with a warm smile and you appear comfortable! :shakehand

Loads of people will move in before the official date, in fact the majority of people did that at my halls.

There are no rules and everyone is scared ****less. If you act like you know what you're doing people will think that you know what you're doing.
