What happens during Freshers' Week

Freshers’ Week is a week of events, activities and taster sessions to help you meet people, make friends and find out about the clubs, societies and everything else the Students’ Union (SU) has to offer.

Get your Freshers' Week wristband

There are two official wristbands for Freshers' Week.

The Ultimate wristband gets you into all Freshers' Week events, including the evening parties.

If you don't plan on going to the parties, you can buy the alternative wristband. This will give you access to all Freshers' Week events except the evening parties.

You must have an official wristband to go to some Freshers’ Week events.

You can buy either wristband online from Monday 12 September 2016, exclusively through the Students' Union website.

Only official wristbands purchased through the Students' Union website are valid. Watch out for fake wristbands that are sold or promoted elsewhere. These won't get you into Freshers' Week events, and you can't exchange them for official wristbands.

You must complete registration before you can buy a wristband.
