A lot of disorganisation prior to freshers week regarding which wristband to buy for club entries. A lot of my flat mates had different wristbands to me so we couldn’t go in the same clubs together without paying on the door. I went out most nights and still worked out it would’ve been cheaper to just buy on the door each time; definitely recommended not getting wristbands. On the positive side there were lots of events on, I made loads of mates and had a great time!

Overall good week but could be more opportunities to meet new people. Made some really good friends on my course Andy in my accommodation. The nightclub events were amazing and always packed. Although you spend quite a bit of money it’s fun and a great way to meet people and quickly build a relationship. My tip would be to put yourself out there as soon as possible it’ll make it easier to build friendships later on when you briefly know people from your first week. The first night I came I went to a flat party all my myself. It was a very unlikely thing for me to do but so glad I did. I’m still friends with some people from that very first night and it allowed me to get to know other people on courses and relate to their experiences at university. I’d say try and remain friends or at least civil with your housemates it only makes things easier and first impressions aren’t always correct. We’re all going through a new experience so people come across different to how they actually are. Housemates will see you at your best and worse and vise versa so politeness is only beneficial to everyone

Moving into my flat was made quick and easy and I was soon meeting my flatmates and getting to know them. We had the same wristbands for the events so we met with another flat and are still meeting up with them to go out months later. Freshers fair in the day were good and easy to find. Induction was easy because of easy to follow instructions and lessons in the week to get settled into the university. Overall, university has been really fun since I started in September.

Moving in was really smooth and everyone had time to get their stuff in while not being to long to make others wait long to get theirs in after. Also the events were really good and introduced everyone to what's on, who everyone is and also gave us things to set ourselves up with and help us start university.

Freshers week was one of the strangest experiences of my life, going out getting drunk with people you don't know and everyone is so welcoming

The university has been great in helping in every aspect of starting university. The teachers are very good and the course modules are fun. The timings for lectures are also good

I was lucky to find people in the same block of flats as me that I got along with but there wasn't much help on getting people to do nights out and stuff. Could have done with someone messaging me before and telling me what was where

The two weeks was full of jam packed fun, my favourite being superbull which I still go to week in week out, spending more of my student loan lol

Everyone I met was so nice, friendly and welcoming. I made many new friends what I will keep for years and there were many events on to have fun and to help settle down in the new environment

Events were well organised, so many you could attend!! I had already spoken to other students in my flat and on my course on group chats so meeting new people was not as stressful as I imagined, everyone is in the same boat so no need to worry about "fitting in".

Freshers week is the best time to meet new people and make friends, there's tons of fun stuff to do.

Great events and great acts. If honest maybe stick to SU events, however some of the other clubs offer great nights too if you’re up for busy, cheap drinks and making a LOT of friends in the smoking area!

The university had so many events, parties and opportunities to meet people. There was a lot of fairs to go and was such a fun experience despite not knowing a single person atriving there.

Wasn't great (night life) -over priced -little music genre variety Okay (activities) - A good choice of activities to chose from each day

Whilst the line up is usually eminiscent of a 2008 Pop Party CD, prices are good and there's a good range of non SU events.

the events were good, however the headline acts were rather poor or not of a high calibre. it would have been better if there was acts that were more well known so the venues would have been busier and the night in general more enjoyable.

I got all the help I needed throughout a very difficult period, there was plenty of information on things to do for nightlife. Also plenty of help to get to know the university.

Hard to meet people unless you live in shared apartment Joining a sports team or society will help you meet friends quickly Just bring essentials when moving in as you end up buying most things

Pretty good experience overall. Friendly and welcoming moving in experience that was no hassle. Good organisation of events both for the SU and the other clubs/places in Lincoln. Was able to get a feel of Lincoln and make friends easily and quickly.
