 What is Freshers’ Week?

Freshers’ Week is part of the University’s Welcome Week and is a celebration of your introduction to NTU.

It takes place during enrolment and is packed full of events and activities from Freshers’ Fairs to meetups that’ll make your introduction to Nottingham Trent a memorable one.

You can find a full list of all the Students’ Union’s events here or find the full Welcome Week Programme at www.ntu.ac.uk/welcome.

What can I expect from the Freshers’ Fairs?

The Freshers’ Fairs take place across all three campuses and bring together societies, sports clubs and some of the city’s most popular businesses and venues under one roof. You can sign up to a club, get access to exclusive discounts and freebies and just generally find out more about what student life has to offer here in Nottingham.

I don’t drink, can I still get involved in Freshers’ Week?

Absolutely! As well as the popular club nights, there a range of day time or non-drinking events you can get involved in during Freshers’ Week and beyond. From quizzes to clothing sales, there’ll be plenty you can get involved in whether you drink or not.

Do I have to be 18 to take part?

It depends which events you want to attend. If alcohol is being consumed, yes, you’ll need to be 18 and bring ID with you to prove it but otherwise, you’re free to attend as many events as you like regardless of your age.

I have accessibility needs. Can I still come to the events?

Of course! Simply let us know in advance of the event and we’ll do our very best to accommodate you.

Can I only attend the events on my campus?

No – you’re welcome to come to any of the Freshers’ Week events at City, Clifton and Brack no matter where you’re studying. Click here for more information on travelling between campuses.

What is a Freshers’ Wristband?
