Freshers' activities

Freshers' activities take place each September to help you settle in, get to know each other, and to have an amazing time at Kingston University. This year they take place from Friday 16 September to Friday 23 September 2016.

Both the Union of Kingston Students and the University's student support services arrange lots of social events, all designed to get you involved and showcase the opportunities available to you throughout your time at Kingston. There will be:

  • numerous evening events in our campus bars;
  • the Freshers' Fayre which enables you to sign up to sports, societies and volunteering opportunities; and
  • the Freshers' Ball.

For more information on what's happening and where, visit the Union of Kingston Students website.
