Hiya

You can check out the events that Brookes Union is running here and on the Official Freshers' Facebook group, and find out all about your subject sessions and induction activities on our new student webpages. Make sure you follow Oxford Brookes and Brookes Union on Facebook or Twitter for the most up to date info!

Give me a shout if you have any more questions

You need to apply online. Link should be on PIP.

Hi Matthoow

great to hear you're coming to Brookes soon! You can find out how to apply for a BROOKESKey travel pass in the new students section of our website.

We look forward to welcoming you here.

There are a lot of unofficial events happening during Freshers' week, too, that aren't on the Brookes SU page. Some look better than the official offerings to me, if only because they don't want £75 to get in!

I can probably knock up a list, given time.

Stuff on during the day? Fresher's fair is on the 22nd, not sure about any other day stuff. I don't drink either, though, so if I see anything listed around town that catches my eye, I can let you know.

Are you looking for anything in particular?

not really, I've just heard from people that go to other unis that they have other stuff on during fresher's week other than the usual.

Everything I've seen announced so far is club nights, basically. There's nothing special on in the daytime that doesn't happen all year round though, that I know of. That said, I know the city fairly well having lived here most of my life. I'd be happy to give you a guided tour if there's nothing else happening :-)

@fionnghualah I just looked into it and there's an open air cinema thing on the 24th at 18:00. It's not daytime, but it seems to be the only event on (excepting the halls welcome parties) that doesn't completely revolve around a theme of "let's get paralytic!"
