Welcome Week – sometimes known as freshers' week – usually takes place in the week before the start of term. It includes a range of social and academic events designed to help ease you in to college and university life.

If you plan to live on campus you are invited to move in on allocated days – details of which will be sent out to you nearer the time.

Please note that, on campus, cars and personal belongings are left at owner’s risk.

Before you arrive

  • Freshers’ Packs – will be sold via the Students’ Union website and pick them up from Grizedale Bar on move in day.
  • Bus passes – This bus pass will entitle you to travel to and from campus throughout the entirety of Welcome Week. We highly recommend that you buy one of these as we will use a bus almost every day throughout the week. You can collect these from Grizedale Bar along with your Freshers’ Packs.
