    I'm starting UCCA in Canterbury in September and it says the induction week begins the 10th September. I thought 'induction week' meant Freshers Week, but the moving in date for halls is the 29th August....so does that mean Freshers Week is the week before?
    I'm just not sure whether to move in on the 29th or wait until the weekend before the 10th. I don't wana miss out on the partyin etc but I also dont want to be stuck by myself in my room for a week waiting for everyone else to arrive!

    Try asking on the UCCA category. Induction week may well be an acadmeic thing, whereas Freshers is more social. At Birmingham we have a fresher's fortnight effectively, with more of the academic meetings and things happening during the day on the second week.
    If the moving in date is 29th August, then I would imagine that's when most people would be moving in tbh so I'm sure you won't be all alone!

    l wish l'd been able to move in nearly 2 weeks early! it would've been great to move in in my own time, get to know the the place, go shopping, visit local pubs before they were crammed with students and generally relax and prepare before being overwhelmed by Induction Week events.

    Anyway, why don't you email/phone the uni and ask?

    I did thanks! They said most people don't move in until the following week, freshers week starts on the 9th September so I think I'll just move in a few days before that. Woo how exciting
