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, we kicked off Freshers' Week with a big House Party. Live music, drinks deals and friendly staff provided the perfect opportunity for students to start to make friends and settle in.

From themed parties to a pub crawl through Gloucester - Wednesday night is student night - there was plenty going on. Take a look at last year's guide below for a flavour of what you've got to look forward to. We'll send your guide in August, so you can be ready for one of the biggest weeks of the year.
