Welcome week

Welcome Week is packed full of events and activities. You'll make new friends and start finding your way around campus. You'll feel at home in no time. 

During the week, you'll complete your registration, receive your student ID card, meet our finance and support teams and take part in wellbeing sessions.

Your Freshers' Week – which you can find out more about below – runs alongside Welcome Week and is organised by our Students' Union. We've got some great events planned for you, including your Freshers' Fair, Frat Party and Beach Ball!

Academic induction

During your academic induction, you'll meet your Programme Manager. They will be there to meet you and welcome you to Hartpury.

You'll find out about your course and find out what happens next. You'll meet your new course mates for the first time here too and start getting to know everyone.

Freshers' Week

Your Freshers’ Week runs at the same time as your Welcome Week to provide the social side of your enrolment. It’s a great way to meet your new friends and get to know our beautiful campus.

Our Students' Union (SU) will organise a packed schedule of events and activities for you and your news friends to get involved in.

Last year, our Freshers' Week started with a big House Party - welcoming our students to Hartpury in style! With live music, drinks deals and friendly staff, it was chance to meet and mingle with other students and start to settle in.

Our students also enjoyed a beach party, pub quiz, movie night, pub crawl through Gloucester on Wednesday 'student night', and a 'bring your own drinking vessel' party in Legends bar.

Legends bar will become one of your favourite hang outs on campus. It's your space to chill out on the sofas, play some pool, watch the TV and chat with your mates. It's also where lots of your SU events take place during the year - don't forget to get your Freshers' wristband when you arrive so you'll never miss a party!
