    Intro week generally is Freshers as you have a very small amount of lectures (usually that is) and theres lots of orientation events around town to get you used to the area, which is perfect for meets and greets, but you will already know people in your accommodation too so you have drinking buddies from the start.


    (And yes "orientation events around town" was a polite way of putting pub crawls)

    Awesome i thought so the polite term , and i actually thought there were littel get together then of people just getting used to the layout of the city :') ahah x

    Well ive lived in the Leeds area all my life so if anyone gets lost or needs help finding their way around im sure I can sort something out, either pub crawl wise or as a general sightseeing type event, makes life a little easier when you first get htere if you know the lay of the land in the first few days.

    Leeds freshers is actually USUALLY 2 weeks due to their being a metropolitan university in the city too and most crowds usually just meet on the mid ground, there will be some Leeds Uni and Leeds Met functions/events that only students at the respective unis can go to, but most of the time its a general free for all type situation
    Actually it isn't 2 weeks as the Leeds Met freshers week is the same week as the Leeds one.

    Fresher's week technically lasts 1 week at both universities in Leeds, however, the first month you will notice the number of students in town is dramtaically higher than the rest of term time (although numbers in town are still very high during term, it's much worse in the first month).

    Official start date for Leeds Uni freshers week is Monday 19th September with most first years moving into halls on the 17/18th (depending on your hall of residence). Leeds Met's official start date for freshers week is Sunday 18th.

    Most people will wait until the weekend to move in, for one reason or another. At least, that was the case last year.
