We have two weeks of amazing activities planned for our new and returning students and their friends.
There are events to suit every taste, from fun daytime ice-breaker and networking sessions to comedy, karaoke, gigs, club nights, quizzes and more. It's a great opportunity to make new friends and immerse yourself in the University's social life. The fortnight also includes your faculty welcome event and the University's Freshers' Fairs.
All events within freshers' fortnight (except for the freshers' welcome party) are free for freshers with your complimentary wristband. You can get this from The Rocket venue on our Holloway campus or from our events team at enrolment areas and your faculty welcome events.
For the most up-to-date information on freshers' events, and to meet new London Met friends online and stay connected, join our social media community:
