If you love and American style university atomosohere you’ll love Loughborough and it’s freshers week is no different. You and your hall mates will battle it out throughout the week against other halls. This all leads to one big sing off at the end which determines who’s the king.

The fresher helpers were extremely useful with the move in and guiding us on nights out and at social events. There was always someone to talk to if I had an issue and the 2nd years made my experience thoroughly enjoyable. Not only this but I was able to meet so many new people because of the events and socials that we’re put on for us

The first 3 days (of my experience at least) were pretty alcohol heavy. I’d say if your a non-drinker, find other non-drinkers to have fun with because it can be pretty sucky when everyone is wasted and you’re not. I didn’t drink after day 1 because I didn’t want to make a bad impression. Found out it didn’t really matter because you don’t make your real friends till Like November. So just enjoy it!

After being very nervous arriving at loughborough for day 1 it was about 5 minutes before I felt completely at home. Met everyone in my block and we were a family almost instantly. They aren't lying when they say Freshers is one of of not the best times of your uni life.

Smooth move in, plenty of help with bags and directions. Everyone very friendly. Good range of events and nights out, suits the majority of freshers. Tips for new students include getting involved where possible and not being afraid to meet people.

Felt very welcome on arrival and met all of my new flat mates as soon as I arrive. Freshers week was very well organised with lots of events happening on each day that involved everyone with lots of different activities. I met lots of new people from all over the university and have stayed friends ever since.

Freshers fairs were good but I’m disabled and literally 0 consideration was made for how I’d be able to access a lot of the freshers events. Really sad it ruined it.

When you move in there a loads of students to help you carry your luggage and they'll show you around the hall and take you to outside your room. They answer any initial questions you may have and will chat to your parents also. It's good because you already know a friendly face from the get go. I stayed in Towers hall, each hall will organise their own freshers. Towers freshers is organised way in advance by the social secs of the committee so it's super organised and safe. The acitivities include day time ones as well as at night and then at the end there is freshers ball, which is the best part in my opinion bc everyone gets dolled up. You pree with your whole floor so you get to know everyone quite quickly, you don't have to go out if you don't want to e.g. If you're exhausted or if you don't feel well etc. Overall my advice would be to be open to all the opportunities, and different types of people. Do not judge people on first impression, people are nervous and you don't know their story yet give them a chance. If you want to try out for sports there's a sports fair, make sure you ask them when they have try outs for whatever sport you want so you don't miss them. If your freshers don't go as well as you hoped then don't worry there's plenty more time to find your people. Enjoy first year!

Organisation was great and events were a great way to meet new friends and get an idea of campus life. There was something for everyone's music taste which was refreshing and everything was cheap which helped everyone get involved

It's a 2 week longs freshers! Most days are involving daytime events and nighttime. A great time to get to know your halls and settle into university! There are plenty of ice breaker activities and you are sure to make plenty of new friends if you get stuck in!

Most of the halls are really well organised for the week. All have a different theme, loads of freshers fairs going on with free stuff and loads of information, super inclusive of drinkers/non drinkers/cultural differences

There where loads of events organised by the second years which where all fun and got you to meet loads of new people. Only negative was that it would have been good to have a document with all the important info about halls rather than loads of individual things. To much info couldn't take it all in
