Freshers is fun but the biggest point I want to make is that, at least at Imperial, you’re expected to attend different welcome lectures, registrations, health and safety meetings etc. all through the first 2 weeks, many of them starting at 9am. I didn’t go to a few and was never called up on it, but it came as a bit of a shock when I saw a 9am lecture on the Tuesday of week 1. Moving in was made fairly easy and the warden team definitely make a lot of effort to be welcoming and helpful, which makes the whole experience nicer. There’ll also be a few meet-and-greet activities arranged by the wardens which are seriously cringey, but going to 1 or 2 does help you meet your flat mates.
