Welcome to your Freshers experience! One of the biggest two weeks of your life are about to begin! We have organised two entire weeks full of activities and amazing socials to make sure you have the best Freshers weeks possible. There will be things to do both during the day and night, and these are the best opportunities to get to know the other people in the hall!
What happens when I move in?
Claudia Parsons' move in day for 2019 is Wednesday 25th September, which gives you a few days before term starts to get yourself settled in, and enjoy the Freshers' experience!
You should aim to arrive between 10am and 4pm. Once your academic place at Loughborough is confirmed, you will be able to go online and book your arrival slot which helps our hall and warden teams make sure you can collect your keys and complete the arrival process as quickly as possible!
If you plan to arrive by car, please be patient and follow the instructions given on arrival, these are designed to allow the University to cope with the increased volume of traffic.
You will then need to collect your keys and Student ID. You can do this in Claudia Parsons - a member of our Fresher Helper team will be on hand to take you there!
When you're ready to move in, our team of fresher helpers will be on hand to help you get unpacked and take your items to your new room! Don't be afraid to say hello and ask for some help or directions - it's what our team is here for!
What happens during Freshers?
Freshers Week is 2 weeks long, and every day the Committee and Fresher Helpers will be putting on amazing events for you! According to Loughborough tradition, every hall has a theme (which will be announced closer to the time), and this will be used throughout Freshers and during the Sing Off!
The Committee will also issue a timetable of events, which will tell you what is going on, and where, each day and night! Events will take place every day and evening, and will be suitable and inclusive for everyone, with sober nights and events part of the schedule for those who don't drink or live in our Performance Athletes Block!
Freshers' Highlights include:
The Sing Off - a passionate sing off between every hall on the first Sunday of freshers! A battle to decide which hall is best!
Freshers' FND - the first big Friday night of Freshers, where every hall invades the Union for an amazing night!
Freshers' Ball - a more formal evening to celebrate the final night of Freshers, with massive acts and fairground rides, stalls, and more!
