Freshers Week is right around the corner and we can’t wait! It’s one of the most exciting events on the university calendar, whether it’s your first year or your fourth.
With so many events taking place, it can be hard to keep track of them all, especially when you’re still finding your way around. Don’t worry though, we have five pro-tips to make you a Freshers Week expert.
Events at the Students' Union
There are events running throughout the week at the Students’ Union and on campus. From petting zoos to club nights, we’ve made sure that there’s something for everyone!
Our personal favourites are the Vintage Kilo Sale, the Freshers Fair and the street food day. We’re also keeping our fingers crossed for good weather for our OpenAir Cinema where we’ll be showing Rocket Man!

So, you’ve starting to make plans and getting a taste of what’s going on during Freshers Week, the next thing to do is check out our Freshers Wristbands.
They’re available to all students at York St John, not just first years, and feature a bucket load of discounts and free entry to events. Whether you’re looking for food, transport or a night out, you can save yourself a heap of cash by getting one.
We have premium and standard Freshers Wristbands available. Get yours quick because they’re selling out fast!
On Tuesday 17 September, we’re going to be having a Wellbeing Day here at the students’ union. Afterall, you might need some TLC after the first KUDA Monday of the year!
Take some time for self-care and relax with our exciting events. In the morning, there’ll be yoga and pilates classes in the students’ union bar. The chilled vibes don’t end there though, because in the afternoon we’re hosting THREE petting zoos!
As well as our dedicated Wellbeing Day, it’s important to take some time for yourself all throughout Freshers Week. Take care of yourself!
The Freshers Group on Facebook is something you NEED to join. Not is it the only official York St John Freshers group, but it’s also the perfect place to help get you settled into life in York!

One of the best things you can do during Freshers Week is getting to know the campus and the city. Take it from us, it’s easy to get lost when you’re new. Don’t worry though, after a few weeks you’ll know York like the back of your hand.
