Moving in was simple and easy and immediately I felt welcomed by the student ambassadors. There was a plan every evening for going out and every day there were activities that were so fun and inclusive. Freshers week at Lancaster is an event not to be missed

It sound silly but having anxiety made it difficult for me to put myself out there and nightlife etc unless it's a quiet pub night is not for me, so when my flatmates were going out to the clubs or pre-drinking, I was having internal anxiety attacks, struggling to actually connect with them. I think I'd have enjoyed freshers more and made more lovely friends if there were more chilled out or non-drinking events.

Fresher's week at Lancaster University was great (went every year), with events every day and night to keep you entertained and easily meet new people to settle in quickly. There are events both on and off campus making it easily accessible for all.

Fresher reps helped us move in, there wasn't too much going on in terms of non-alcoholic events but there were pub quizzes, treasure hunts for prizes and that sort of thing. Pretty sure every day was a night out in a different bar and you get free entry to all the clubs if you wear the shirt. 10/10 would fresher again.

The college system means that it it easy to make friends. Houses compete against other houses in competitions and there’s many events on and off campus which encourage interacting with new people such as bar crawls and drinking comps.

Overall good experience. Reps got everyone out and didn't put pressure on people to drink. I wouldn't recommend going out 5 nights in a row however

Really good experience but uni could have done more to introduce us to people that weren't in our actual accommodation - barely knew anyone outside of my house after the first week

Move in experience was great, people were on hand to help and the college atmosphere was very welcoming! We had fresher reps that showed us the best places for a night out in Lancaster as well as helping with any other worries. A tip for a new student? Relax! Just enjoy whatever you are doing, whether you drink or whether you don’t, freshers is a great time to meet people!

As a fresher my moving experience was great, as there were constantly party's in my halls. The events where mostly party's, thus making it harder for a shy person to fit in. Nevertheless I think that participating in those events and in societies is very helpful for freshers to meet new people

When I moved into uni, we had great time with lots of freshers events day and night. Nights outs to day to day sports engagement activities. The freshers fair was a fav getting testers and freebies.

The moving in experience was a dream. I could not have settled in better. The freshers reps did an amazing job helping us to settle in and there were constant events running throughout the week.

Freshers' week was really well organised in my college. We had various activities, chances to meet your housemates and the reps were so helpful.

Freshers was such an amazing opportunity to meet new people, make friends and get a feel for the university. Booze was ridiculously cheap and all the uni’s activities and society sign ups where very well organised.

Very easy to meet new people, and the move in experience was great! The only down side was the lack of variation during the freshers events, but then again I guess it is lancaster

The actual moving in, people and place are lovely. But the actual events and clubs are awful in Lancaster.
