Amazing having 2 weeks to meet new people and make friends especially when moving so far from home! Not many clubs in Bournemouth but you have to make the most of it! Disappointing with events as they are advertised differently from the actual event itself! One was advertised with paint cannons etc but on arrival it was a few glow sticks, which was a disappointment.

At first it was not what I expected, I really enjoyed it don't get me wrong, however I could not fully be myself around new people so I wasn't enjoying it to the full, if I had made the friends I have now at uni right at the start it would of been much better!

Freshers week was one of the best weeks of my life. I was able to meet lots of friends who I'm still friends with 3 years later. Events were well advertised on the Facebook page.

More could be done for uni let properties as it can be far more difficult than in halls, events were good just all slightly overpriced as it seems it's a big money maker for a lot of companies and becomes very expensive for students

Move in was very easy with no major problems. I wish they would have explained better the 2 wristbands you could choose from, the one linked to the university/Fire Station and the one linked to all the clubs in town.

It was one of the best experiences of my life. Freshers fair was a safe haven for freshers, soo many freebies especially after spending most of you money at freshers week.

The events were really good but expensive, tips don’t buy wrist bands you don’t use them or Alist cards never used them the whole time I’ve been here

The overall experience was eye opening to say the least. The first day I moved in I fell in love with my room and also the town as a whole. It was a surreal feeling to be surrounded by people I never met before who were also in the same boat and it was weird realising that I was left to my own devices pretty much. The first night of freshers involved going to the first club event at freshers and the welcome was really good. That was my first clubbing experience also therefore I could say that was a good first time. For new students I would recommend not to get into the club nights too much and not to assume that the people that you meet at freshers will be your friends forever.

Easy move in process, great team helping every step of the way. Flats were better than expected. Everyone in our halls was amazing, Purbeck house was the best it could have been. Easy to meet new people between all of the halls across the town as they are so close. Also the 2 week freshers is definitely a must, not the 1 week everywhere else. Tips for students, don’t hold back, knock on all the rooms and flats for the first couple of weeks. Meet everyone you can and enjoy the first couple of weeks. You can easily keep on top of uni and going out in the first year so make the most of the time and money you have before second and third year!

It was great. I went to cameo in Bournemouth and it was zoo themed I went completley over the top and was a bright neon pink flamingo. However when I got to the club I realised that nobody had dressed up anywhere near to the extent I had. Then I had to spend the whole night dancing looking like a bright pink crayon.

Feel like freshers week in general was organised quite poorly. Many people i came across had wristbands to events they didn’t want to go too and there were tons of events going on but no where to view all the events going on because they weren’t all through BU.

Absolutely unforgettable (not very memorable - for good reasons) 2 weeks! Linger than usual uni freshers weeks but filled with events every day of the two weeks including a garden party (festival) and good deals on tickets and wristbands for all events.

The city freshers events (halo, cameo etc) is much better than the SUBU events! Would recommend getting the city fresher wristband and purchasing individual SUBU fresher events if needed!
