Very friendly move in, the student helpers were lovely. The week was very busy and organised. It was easy to meet people living near me.

My freshers was lit! I had so much fun and met people I know I’m going to be friends with for many years! I had my first IPA in freshers week. It’s great.

It was a packed freshers week schedule, I had lots of stuff to do. I enjoyed meeting new people and the nights out were great. On the down side, it wasn't actually a full week as work started not that long after we arrived.

The move-in experience was fine. Unlike most other Cambridge colleges, at my college we got a full Freshers' Week (8 days, in fact). However, the week was not the most entertaining consisting of a lot of dull and unnecessarily long talks on things like safety, responsibility, how to use a microwave, and IT. There were not many fun activities arranged and the nightlife side was poorly arranged (other colleges had organised systems of wristbands).

Moving in was a fast but fun experience. The student reps were always on hand to help and guide you through the nervous first few days. Make sure you get enough sleep!

I hated moving in, but who doesn't. It necessitates first a moving out, which is like birth or worse yet the fall from paradise

Moving in was super easy, and they had loads of representatives on hand to help with even simple things like your getting your bags from the car! I felt like a lot of the social things they had put on felt really forced, and they would have been more enjoyable if the atmosphere had been more relaxed around it all. Having said that, the club socials like football were great to meet people from all years

Wristbands are worth buying if you can but don’t worry about going out too little/too much just do whatever makes you happy!!

I really enjoyed freshers week but I felt there could have been more variety of non drinking activities. But everyone was so welcoming and friendly and I quickly felt at home. The freshers fair was amazing, so much to get involved in.

Everyone in college was really helpful and friendly when I moved in, and there were so many activities and events organised to help us settle in and get to know everyone.
