You’re about to start the best years of your life and it starts with Freshers’ 2019, your exclusive events and activities schedule to help you settle in and have the best start to your life in Newcastle. There’s a reason Newcastle is known for having the best Freshers’ in the UK.


The fun kick starts on Sunday 22nd September with an exclusive gig headlined by non-other than Rudimental. You’ll get a whole host of day and night time events included in your wristband to help you feel at home in Newcastle.


And to make this year even better we’ve made sure the fun lasts even longer with 10 days of events and activities exclusive to Freshers’ 2019 Wristband holders. Because Freshers’ Week was so last year!



Freshers is your first few weeks at Uni. Aimed at making sure you are settled into your accommodation, your course and of course having the most fun. With a dedicated team of recent graduates working day and night for Newcastle University Students’ Union (NUSU for short) you’re sure to love every minute of it.

But as great as all this sounds you can only get access to all these great events with an Official Newcastle University Freshers’ 2019 Wristband. A select few events will have a limited number of tickets available for purchase but if you want guaranteed access to all our great events and activities, you’ll want to purchase a wristband.


There’s something for everyone during Freshers’ 2019. Get to know your new favourite restaurants with our grub crawls, get used to your surroundings with our city tours and try something new like archery or bubble football. Or why not try them all.


As well as all the great stuff off campus, the centre of Newcastle University’s campus will be a bustling hub of Music, Food and much more to make sure you’re not going to want to waste your days in bed. So make sure you join us and join in!


Freshers’ 2019 doesn’t end when the sun goes down. Whether your ideal evening is heading out on the Town or something more chilled out Freshers' 2019 has you covered.


With a whole host of evening events from gigs to comedy shows, axe throwing to a night out in town, you’re sure to find something to make you pause Netflix and get involved.


Showcasing the best of what Newcastle has to offer after dark you’ll soon find your feet in the Uk’s number one city for nightlife.
