Freshers week is a great opportunity to make friends with the people you will be living with for the next year. There are many events and offers on throughout the week at the SU and the nightclubs in town.

Freshers events were very expensive; I would recommend paying for a freshers wristband if you intend on going to at least 2 of the events as that would be a better value for money than paying the expensive price on the door and having to wait in the queue. The move in experience was easy because of the accommodation team helping carry bags into halls and showing you where you could park. The time slot to move in was also helpful was it meant the halls weren't overcrowded. Making friends is really easy on freshers week, you've just got to put yourself out there and go into the communal areas and meet people and ask if they plan on going to any of the events that day and ask if you could go with them. Prior to freshers week it may be a good plan to find the university freshers page for that year and ask who's living in your accommodation so you know peoples names prior to moving in.

The fact that a time slot was given to move things into halls was extremely helpful as it meant the corridors weren't overcrowded, similarly accommodation reps were there in identifiable uniforms (purple shirts) to help you to carry things to your room/ to the communal areas which made moving things into the building easy and quick. Freshers events that cost money (nightclub events) were very expensive and the alternative was paying an expensive entry fee on the door but having to wait in a long queue which made the nights out feel miserable. I'd recommend getting a freshers wristband if you plan on going to at least 2 events to get your moneys worth even if you don't feel you'd go to all of the events specified by the wristband, otherwise you'll be paying more on the door every night you go out and have to wait in a queue. Meeting new people is easy in freshers as long as you put yourself out there - once your family leaves after helping you unpack, go out into the communal areas, find people and ask them if they plan on heading to any of the events that day and ask if you can tag along. Prior to freshers week if you find the university's freshers page you'll be able to link up with people in your accommodation before you move in so you can be more comfortable meeting your flat mates in person on move in day.

The events were good and the themes provided good opportunities to get dressed up and have fun. Was good that you could purchase a wristband for tramps to make a saving on entrance fees. Also the day time events such as the cider festival were good fun and nice chance to get to know new students.

The fresher week was mainly alcohol focused, with the events made being very expensive. I purchased a wristband and felt even though i attended every night I paid too much. The acts booked did not show up. Tramps was always too busy and drinks were too expensive.

great way to meet new friends and have a way of breaking the ice. Sick events that really help you settle into your uni life. Moving in gets easier if you have something in common to talk about - what event you're most excited for possibly! Just enjoy it most of all, it'll only help you lay the basis of friends, halls and what activities you enjoy doing.

Fresher's Week at Worcester had plenty of events running, including a Welcome Barbecue on the first day to meet new people. Lots of events happening at the nightclubs and student bars. A great opportunity to make friends for life.

Moving in was pretty easy as I was on the ground floor and just had to move a few boxes. The events were alright, mostly club based but there were a few at the uni. I met some nice people on my course. I would advise new students to talk to as many people as then can.

Move in experience was made very easy by a great support team. Events were well advertised and fun. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience

For me, freshers is an essential week to release party energy before the serious uni stuff begins and stops you craving a really big night out for a few weeks. It's great for creating fresh bonds with housemates and getting to know familiar faces you'll inevitably see on nights out later in the year!
