    Do we need to bring an iron if we are in catered halls or do they have irons somewhere?

    most clubs don't have a strict dress code nowadays, you can get in with trainers/jeans ect. some places don't allow hoodies. anyone in a tracksuit usually gets turned away. smarter places might have a shoes/collared shirt policy
    again, most places accept cards but to be safe it might be best to draw out some cash. atm's are usually close by to most clubs, some have them inside but they have charges for withdrawals
    champagne depends on the club. a lot of places do sell it, some dj's in clubs even give bottles away! (t&c's apply - you have to be a good looking lass)

    by trainers i mean like Adidas originals or something of that sort. turn up in total 90's or air max's you could get turned away

    Yeah thats what im gonna do, but i notice all the freshers events are 'themed' and they expect us to dress up (e.g as cavemen) and i really cannot be arsed. Wondering whether everyone else is on the same wavelength

    I feel this exactly, I so cannot be arsed to dress up all the time, would much rather wear my own clothes, but I also don't want to miss out on everything

    Haven't got anything against it, but if I have to splash out £10-20 extra per night on fancy dress, I'm just going in jeans and shirt.

    same, just seems like the students union are trying to bleed us dry of money even before we've started. we could instead be spending that money on drinks/taxis etc to actually enjoy our freshers as opposed to prancing about in bedsheets (in reference to the 'greek' themed party).

    They provide transport to and from the fresher week events.
    All I did last year was buy some cheap tops from primark, cut them up if necessary and wore them with skirt/trousers
