Follow all the action with #LondonMetFreshers

What do I do first?

Collect your free Freshers’ Fortnight Wristband from staff in ‘The Rocket’ venue at Holloway campus, which gets you free entry to Freshers’ social events at London Met. Grab a copy of the free ‘Verve magazine’ Freshers’ Guide edition, which includes all the events happening over the welcome period.

How do I keep in the loop with event info?

The best place to get most up-to-date information (and to see all the wonderful pictures and tag yourself!) is by following our London Met Events Facebook page and our @londonmetevents Twitter feed.

I’ve heard about Freshers’ Fair – what’s that all about?

We hold two great Freshers’ Fairs at our Holloway campus (Thursday 3 October in The Great Hall, 11am-3.30pm) and Aldgate campus (Friday 4 October at The Wash Houses, 11am-3pm), for you to learn all about university life and get some great deals and freebies!

What are the best Freshers’ social events?

There are amazing club night parties at The Rocket in the first and second weeks of Freshers – our main events are Frat Party on Thursday 26 September and Full Moon Party on Wednesday 2 October, both 9pm until 3am (last entry at midnight). These are free with your Freshers wristband!

Alongside this we have fun carnival events in the courtyard during the first week and various fantastic evening activities like comedy, cabaret, quizzes, karaoke and more... all events are on our Facebook and included in the Verve Magazine Freshers’ Guide.

One event to MAKE SURE you don’t miss out on is the Freshers’ Premiere… it’s the biggest event during the start of year festivities, and is always a sell out! You have to buy a ticket for this one, but they are super cheap and students can buy two guest tickets too. For ticket link and more information visit our Facebook, details below.

All the most up-to-date info will be on our Facebook and Twitter… we regularly post content about uni life and what’s on, so give us a follow, say hello and keep in touch!

Use the hashtag #londonmetfreshers when posting to get featured and maybe win prizes!
