My move in experience was smooth and easy! The flat reps did a great job and introducing the freshers to the rest of the flats. The events were fun and a great people from the rest of the university.

Thorpe Park was good but had to queue at uni for two hours then another hour inside. Good freshers fair Grand was also good

A great fun week different from a lot of unis, not just primarily drinking. For instance, the uni rents out Thorpe Park for an evening so there's no queues! We also get to do Blingo or Crazy Golf. However there is only 1 club night in the 6 days which is disappointing but the uni does change the student union into a 'club' which is great fun and easy to get to! Lots of chances for day meetings to meet people like yourself, for instance other off campus people. It makes the whole process a lot easier and is also fun at the same time!

I found freshers week a great experience. There were lots of staff to help out on the days and everyone was really friendly.

The friends I made during Freshers Week are the friends I’m still with 2 years later. Freshers week truly brings a bond between students. And all the freebies and offers on are worth it

Freshers week was good as you could meet many different people around the university campus. Lots of societies were present and some events were great for socialising. It would be better if there were more events “to do” and other years could also be involved.

Move in was well organized, different events for different preference was good. A lot of people to help. Great experience to meet new people, whether it was in queues or at the actual event. Variety of night and day events.

Freshers week was fantastic they catered for all. The best part was the Thorpe Park freshers night we got to go on the rides with no disturbance of other paying guests we had the park to our selves and had the chance to go on the rides we wanted. The club they choice for one of the nights was excellent and they even provided transport for safety this was a bonus for us as students

With the summer sun, great music and welcoming faces - move in day was so fun and made parting with my parents a little less hard. Freshers week was well planned out with events for everyone, alcoholic or not! Top tip: throw yourself into any situation, talk to as many people as you can do that in months to come you can walk around campus with familiar friendly faces surrounding you.

Freshers week included several nights of heavy drinking, a trip to Thorpe park after hours and a freshers fair with loads of freebies. There was a huge amount on in the day and Thorpe park wasn't quite what we expected; there were no queues but only a few rides were actually open. It's over priced but a good way to meet people.
