Freshers week 2022: What is happening to welcome students to the University of Sunderland following this year's A-Level results?
N-Trance and a member of JLS are set to welcome new students to Wearside this September.
Moving from home life to university can be a huge step in life, with universities and students’ unions doing their best to welcome new faces to the city.
And freshers’ week is among the best ways to introduce students to university life.
What is freshers’ week?
Used as a welcome period for students to get to know their new city, university, flatmates and coursemates, freshers’ week is the best chance students have to get used to the university lifestyle. This includes club nights and daytime events set up by student unions, as well as course leaders giving a further glimpse what to expect over the next three years.
When is freshers’ week at the University of Sunderland?
New students will get access to their first year accommodation in Sunderland from Saturday, September 17, with freshers’ week running from then until Saturday, September 24.
What is happening across Sunderland for freshers’ week 2022?
The University of Sunderland’s Students’ Union released their freshers’ schedule on the morning of A level results day, with the biggest names heading to Sunderland’s city centre including N-Trance and Marvin Humes.
Humes, best known for his part in hugely successful boy band JLS, is DJing on the final night of freshers’ week, which will see students end their night at Trilogy, in Green Terrace.
Electronic group N-Trance will be DJing as part of an Ibiza themed party on Monday, September 19, at Hidden, also in Green Terrace.
The full schedule is available on the Student Union’s website.
Those who may want to stay away from nightlife are also in luck, thanks to the return of the freshers’ fayre, held at the university’s CitySpace building, at City Campus. This gives new students an opportunity to pick up discounts from city businesses, find out what clubs and societies they can join and even pick up a bit of free food from big name brands.
Other events from the Students’ Union include bowling and minigolf sessions, games nights and a trip to the Empire Theatre.
