University of Exeter Freshers Week 2017

Freshers’ Week takes place from Monday 18 – Sunday 24 September 2017 with students moving into university accommodation from Saturday 16. It is an introduction to all aspects of university life. An opportunity to get to know your university and its surroundings, find out about your course and what’s involved in studying, explore and try the university’s many societies and services, as well as meet and make new friends.

With over 800 Guild events and 600 FXU events during the week, many of which involve no drinking at all, remember to attend your academic induction so you can be prepared for your study.

University staff and the Students’ Guild welcome team volunteers will be on hand to help with any issues that come up – they’re easy to spot in their pink t-shirts.
