    They probably do some smaller black-tie events for societies or courses, which seems to be the case at other universities. No idea about bigger events?

    Personally, I hate black-tie and being expected to wear a dress, so the less the better.

    Freshers ball was not black tie, most things people turned up v casual. The grad ball was black-tie but not many people I knew went, probably because we didn't have any suitable clothes! I do know there are a few sports balls and subject specific balls/events that are black-tie, if you like that sort of thing...

    Some of our stuff is a bit fancy (Sports/Society balls & the Grad Ball as cybersam4000 said) but even for those some people do a bit more casual. Black tie usually just means 'smart/shirt/tie/nice dress' rather than big ballgowns and expensive tuxs). We're fairly laid back in general
