I was welcomed into my accomodation with an event to socialise with my housemate. I had a wristband that enabled me to attend most of the freshers week events such as nights out in the union like bass hunter and silent disco. I met a lot of new people and had a lot of fun nights. I settled in quickly. During the day I had introduction to my course and a guide around university. I also attended freshers sports fair and signed up to clubs

Poor overpriced events, wristbands rendered useless by poor staffing as people pushed in. Overpriced wristbands also. Huge queues despite wristbands.

Fresher's Week was not what I expected. Move-in day was incredibly awkward but we all soon warmed up to each other after settling in. There was at least one event each day, some with varied success. It was a good opportunity to meet new people in exactly the same situation so just go up to people and talk to them because they probably feel exactly the same as you.

nightlife is amazing and has a lot of variation to suit many tastes, the clubs and bars are quite small meaning there’s lots more of them and almost all are free entry

The move in experience was easy and welcoming. I went out every single night of freshers and all the events were very enjoyable! Meeting new people was easy as everyone was very welcome. Tips would be to make as many friends as you can, too have as much fun as you can

Freshers week was amazing. So much to do and not just going out at night. The outdoor cinema was amazing and the fair in the guild was great. So many freebies and discounts. The events they held were really good, especially the welcome to freshers week party.

There were really good events and something to do every night. I purchased a wristband which was very good value for money as it got me into the best clubs for a cheaper price than paying entry fee on the night.

I didn't have the best move in experience and also sadly, I did not feel as though the uni did much or offered much support for me during this time

Amazing times to make friends, really nice having independence. Drinks were very expensive annoyingly but netherless still had a great week

Moving in was easy with help from older students who took my bags up for me on a trolley that the uni provided. The freshers experience was also good with different events on every night such as a zoo party and at different clubs each night so you got to try each one. I would recommend getting the coolit wristband as it gave me que jump and free entry to all events and was only around £25 but it's cheaper the earlier you get it.

Good move in experience as there were staff to help move bags and boxes at my halls. The Guild of Students events had a good variety for people of all interests. There were a good amount of sober events too. On the other hand the events in town organised by Cool It were really fun and showed us a wide range of clubs. Very expensive though.

Freshers week was great! I was very glad that there were loads of activities besides drinking. I am from Cyprus and so I was pretty surprised to see the huge drinking culture (especially in Liverpool) so I was a bit worried at first but there was so many other things to get involved with. Although I must say the focus is on drinking but you can still meet plenty of people and have a great time! The fresher's fair was great too, very busy and really opened your eyes to see all the possibilities during my study here.

Freshers week at the University of Liverpool offers a wide range of parties in multiple clubs and a wide range of tickets such as regular and VIP. The VIP allows you to jump ques and receive free welcome drinks in clubs. Freshers is a very good way of making new friends who attend your university and your course, which makes you feel less nervous when starting university, because you already know people and therefore have people to sit with. I highly recommend going to freshers because it will allow you to make amazing friends and memories that, which will both last a life time. There are also daytime activities in freshers such as food stall which are a good way of learning your way around the campus.

Freashers week wasn’t fun at all. The events weren’t organised well and I felt there was very little interaction from the university guild. The events were far too centred round one genre of music and drinking was essential.

Move in experience was good, Halls staff were helpful. Club night s organised by clubs were awful, they put out misleading information as to what would be included. Tip: try and make friends at your course welcome meetings

At freshers I met quite a lot of people and I started asking them for their social media details straight away, like snapchat, so I could remember names and stay in touch.

Halls on campus are very isolating but they’re good at freshers. The unis village halls are the best for socials and worth the travel.

Had a lot of things to do, even had a welcome party in guild. The frehers fair was amazing, a lot of societies and met a lot of other freshers

Really good fun, met some amazing people and had a good time. My flat have been amazing and have really helped me settle into uni and freshers week was a big part of it.

freshers week was a fantastic experience, i really enjoyed it and i cannot wait to receive my free beer from brewdog. It is so fantastic that they offer such amazing deals to us students. Top brand.

It was great to move in and meet everybody in the Carnatic bar but was difficult to work out who I was actually in the same hall as, so although it was nice meeting those people, my first few hours were spent with people I didn’t even live with! The nights out were good and the events at the guild were great! Would advise get your parents to drop you off and leave as soon as possible!

The move in was great and ran really smoothly, make sure you know the type of place/where abouts you are in terms of the main going out areas/ where the closest supermarkets are before going. Throw yourself in at the deep end, it's daunting but you'll be comfortable very quickly.

Average freshers week. Had good fun and moving in was ok, a different experience to living at home but overall a good experience
