Absolutely amazing. Moving in experience was good but could've been better, like more encouragement for flatmates to bond quickly. Events every night that were so good and loads of info so you knew how to get around and where to go.

Events were well planned during freshers but it could definitely be improved with more information on wristbands and which ones to get as people all ended up with different wristbands as there were different events each night and often more than one a night.

The experience was excellent. Meeting a bunch of new people and just having fun with them was like nothing else I have done.

Purchased the silver wristband from the union, would definitely recommend this as you get queue jump and discounted entry on all events. Smoking area is the best place to socialise and chat to people tbh

The move in was chilled and easy. Useful tip is to as your flat mates when they are moving in because you don't want to be the only one there on the first move in day and have to spend it by yourself.

Move in staff were extremely helpful and well organised. There was plenty of events throughout freshers week, incorporating day-time and nightlife events. Alltogether well thought through and planned - made me feel very welcomed.

Freshers week was pretty solid for partying, my accommodation was poor for helping integrate flatmates but the events were good, however the fact there were lectures in freshers week was a bit stupid.

A week full of VKs and general madness. Well organised and great fun. Plenty of event options available. Hard to tell what was an official event and what was not.

Fresher's experience was incredible as it let me meet so many new people and also get out more. Going out to nightclubs and meeting people as well as seeing the nightlife in Bournemouth was incredible.

Lots of different things on to do something new to do every day. Nights out during Freshers are good and the other events during the day inside the uni

It was a very swift and efficient experience, with everything from moving into halls to finding your way around campus specifically geared to guiding freshers.

Move in was organised well so that everyone was able to socialise and fit in well. The events were pricey but a really good way to meet new people and have a good time. Met lots of friends on nights out and everyone was very friendly. My tip would be go to as many events as possible to meet lots of new people.

The freshers fair at BU was the best part of my freshers week. Loads of freebies, loads of cool societies to join, and loads of lovely people to meet through those societies. I'd recommend to any fresher that you sign up for as many societies as possible, be that anything sport related, or gaming or films, or whatever. I met some of my best friends and housemates through stuff like that. I would also say during freshers try not to worry about money, that first couple weeks of uni is about throwing yourself into the social scene as much as possible, I didn't have a lot of money but tried not to let that exclude me from everything that was happening.

Freshers week was classy yet a splash or trampy. A good balance which you wouldn’t normally find. The people were either very friendly and sound or tits drunk. The clubs provided a variety of music which is good. There was music for those jaw swingers, club steppers, and road men.

My biggest tip would be to not keep yourself to yourself. Get out and meet your flat mates, then you’ll meet others through them as well as meeting people through your course. Don’t shy away, even if you’re not feeling too confident, everyone’s in the same position.

The accommodation team were all very friendly and delete with any issues promptly. It's easy to meet new people in the halls and there is a good range of societies that is still increasing. Useful tips are get all the freebies you can at the freshers fayre.

Was fun but wish there were more events going on around the campus and in Bournemouth during the night.
