Pre-Arrival

Freshers' Week

Freshers' Week

Freshers' Week, run by the Students' Union, is the main programme of social activities during the arrival, welcome and registration period.

The activities on offer during Freshers' Week are designed to introduce you to the University and the City of Newcastle, help you make friends and adapt to your new surroundings. Attendance is optional and there is a fee for taking part.

Your School or Halls of Residence may also offer social events.

School events

If you attend Freshers' Week, plan your week carefully - and be sure to attend all of the compulsory induction events in your School. School events are usually scheduled for mornings, so you can prioritise Freshers' in the afternoons and evenings.

Only attend morning Freshers' events if your school has not scheduled events for you. Morning Freshers' events are always repeated at other times of the day.
