My move in experience was made easy by the unite app as it allowed me to interact with my roommates months before I was due to move in. Which enabled me to form a relationship with all of my roommates making move in day less scary. I had a freshers wristband which enabled me to be able to attend all of the events which I did and this helped me settle in really well as I made loads of friends that lived in my accommodation. Freshers was one of the best moments of my life and I can’t wiat to relive it next year. The experience is amazing. The events were really good however the second week wasn’t as exciting as the first so I didn’t really attend many events in the second week.

Try to go out every night and meet loads of different people, the bar crawl is really good fun! Not sure if it’s worth getting a wristband As some events weren’t included but it’s up to you! Its great to have fun with friends and make new ones.

There were a lot of diverse activities for everyone, that were really interesting and fun to do!! The move in was a bit messy but everything worked out! Going to the events really helped me relax and feel welcome!

The events held at the university were well varied and appealing to every type of student. They had multiple events on each day of the week that ran throughout the day and a night out event each evening . They also offered days out to places such as Alton towers for all freshers to take part in along with a freshers fair where there were lots of free giveaways and vouchers too

Was a great week, really nice places to go and visit. Move in was easy and everyone was really helpful, just make sure you have someone else to help you.

Freshers week was great this year! YXNG BANE headlined at Athena which was an amazing performance! The bar crawl had such a variety of pubs and clubs. It gets you the real uni experience

Moving in was pretty simple, I arrived at the office for liberty living and was swiftly appointed to my room. And was given an introduction on the spaces. Freshers week had lots of activities during the day and night such as meet and greets, and the societies fair. The nights out and events were well promoted and it was clear what was going on during the days

Not as good as you think. I didn't know anyone so I had to make friends when I went out. I lived in a studio which didn't help

Fresher's week is pretty wild in Leicester and tends to last a month or two. It started off pretty fun but the excitement does wear off rather quickly.

I remember the day I moved in. That day there was a very big mix of emotions, I was terrified but excited, nervous but confident. Moving to University is a massive change Staying healthy during Freshers Week was a task, especially with freshers' flu going around. All the late nights, alcohol and tempting take aways can give your body a hard time. I took Vitamin C tablets during that first week especially, as the big change of moving plus all the stuff i was putting into my body could be hard on my immune system. All in all It was a good week to form friendships especially with housemates and also it took my mind off being homesick whilst i adjusted to living alone. I didn't let myself get lonely in that first week, and before I knew it living alone was completely normal and I was dreading moving back home!

Very good and enjoyable , I advise new students to buy the wristband because it is definitely worth it . You can meet new people easily and go to some great events.

They played the same DJ who played the same songs at all the events. Tickets were very over priced and drinks at venues were too expensive

Freshers week is an opportunity to meet your new house mates and course mates. You get to experience the city and the university and what it has to offer. Freshers week within Leicester there is something to do day and night. From events taking place at the University, events ran internally and externally and events done by student accommodations. With freshers week you need to be open to meeting new people but don't fall into peer pressure.

The events were very good, but some queues were really long. The atmosphere was good and the choice of venues were picked well, as they were quite close to campus and there was a variety.

Best experience ever I recommend to enjoy freshers to the fullest because it is really worth it. Make sure you engage with other people be free to meet new people at freshers week

Great way to make friends, everything well organised and all one thing I would suggest is maybe someone to help lost drunk students as when you've had a few the campus becomes like a maze or great big signs saying halls this way

Amazing events held all week and all events are suitable for anybody 18+! A fantastic week to make friends for life.

The first time you move out of your parents home could be a bit scary and lonely but freshers week in first is the best time to make friends and feel relaxed in your new home. Go out EVERYNIGHT or most (you can sleep the next week) mingle and also start connection because the people you start uni with you probably will end up being the best of friend til the end

I am from India and as an international student, it is a great experience for me at the time of fresher's week and the pick-up service done by the university. I did not feel any loneliness due to the hospitality and kindness served by the university. Fresher's week is one of the amazing memories of my life where I made many new friends and that week was one of the best weeks of my entire student life. I played many games and did lots of fun with my new friends.

Had a lot of fun at the events I went to. I bought a freshfest package which included a wristband for entry into all the events however I only ended up going to one event so unless you’re dead set on going to all of them I wouldn’t recommend getting one

There were lots of activities and the pub crawl was brilliant, a great welcome to the night life in the city! However because I am a student nurse my induction week was full on, making me unable to attend the night events.

Freshers week was great, the events were definitely planned according to the flayer. Meeting new people was overwhelming and a good experience, it was great and fun meeting new people as I don’t have a lot of friends. For the new students starting university, all I got to say is have fun at freshers week l, enjoy it to the fullest and also enjoy ur experience at university make sure you don’t get lost in the sauce though, do not do things you’re going to regret, be yourself and again have fun.
