Freshers 2019

Arriving in Coventry in September? We've got everything you need...

Coming to University isn't just about your degree, you might play sport, have a hobby, want to volunteer, need to work, have questions about where to live, want something changed on your course, or just want to try something new. The Students' Union provides all this and more.

Throughout the first two weeks of term there'll be Freshers and Welcome events and fairs for you to find the things you're most interested in.

Make sure you buy your Freshers Wristband to guarantee access to all the Official Freshers Events.
