    I was literally just scrolling through TSR trying to find an answer to the exact same question. My loan will not even cover the cost of my accommodation so unfortunately I won't have any money left over which could help me out in any way. I think I might rely on stocking up on alcohol from cheaper retailers and pre drinking. I think realistically I will be moving in with a few hundred pounds for freshers and moving in...

    That should be enough for freshers! Depending on how many events you go to and how many societies you sign up for!

    If you aren't much of a drinker, then that should easily be enough

    Are event tickets for freshers sold through the university or would I need to buy them beforehand?
