    How much money should I set aside during Freshers' Week for going out-drinks/entrance money (that kinda thing)?

    I think I'll go out every night and it will be Student union run stuff - discos etc.

    Will £20 per night be enough?

    Ta!

    I think that'll be more than enough, well if you pre drink. But really, unless you're very tight on money, don't worry about it during freshers' week. It's the only time you'll get to do it so enjoy it.

    As much or as little as you like.

    May I suggest heavy pregaming?

    Freshers weeek isn't all that. You don't have friends yet so it's a bit fake. It gets better when you have friends

    I'm interested in this. I think I'll have about £100 for Freshers (my Mum may double it, or give me £50 as well) but that's for everything - drinking, societies, blah.
    What other things do I need to consider except drinking and societies?

    Probably transport, food, books (maybe).

    I think I'll set aside £200 quid for the week.

    My uni doesn't recommend buying books then.

    Most of you have your hopes too high. £50 a night, WTF are you planning? Watching too many american movies I think. £10-15 a day MAX.

    I'm giving myself up to £700 for the first month. This is including freshers, plus societies and books and any kitchen stuff i may need....
    But then again, if i end up spending all of that I'd be pretty distraught.
    ....
    Unless its amazing.
