  • During Freshers’ Week you may have lectures - these are important and should not be missed to attend an activity running in Freshers’ Week. There is always an opportunity to attend the daytime activities after 2pm when compulsory lectures have finished, as well as activities during the weekend and on our ongoing Give It A Go programme

  • Freshers’ Week and the Student Union advocate a sensible drinking policy. Visit www.drinkaware.co.uk  or www.nusu.co.uk/respect for advice to ensure you drink safely in Freshers’ Week.

  • We have worked hard to ensure the wristband offers great value for money; it is up to you how much you get from it, make sure you get involved!

  • Every individual must ensure that they act reasonably in terms of their behaviour and health and safety when on an activity. It is important to note that everybody must have due regard for the safety of others as well as themselves when engaged in an activity. Risk assessments will be in place for each activity offered in the Freshers’ Week program.

  • FW Wristbands are only available to first year UG and PG students (or where a student has come from another institution part way into a course and this is there first year at Newcastle)
