One way of ensuring any events you wish to attend in freshers week are legitimate is to look at past photo albums from previous events. Are the tickets available on trusted ticketing outlets, such as Ticket arena, Fatsoma, FIXR, Eventbrite, Skiddle. Do you know any friends attending the same event or planning to? You can always contact the event organiser to chat to them about the event too, you should be able to tell a lot by gauging their response.

Event closing times are dependent on the partnered venues. Typically, most venues will close at 3am but some do stay open later. Check individual event information to find out the opening times of specific freshers events.

Events in freshers week are generally more lenient on dress code as venues and door teams are made aware that attendees are in a new city for the first time. As a general rule of thumb and just to be safe, it is usually okay to assume that with more electronic events (House, D&B, Tech) attire isn’t expected to be so formal.

With more “upmarket” venues, a slightly stricter dress code may be in place. You can always enquire with the venue or event organiser directly before the event if you’d like clarification on dress code for the freshers event you’re attending.

Freshers week events are of course predominantly attended by freshers students, but also second and third years. All freshers events typically require a student ID or another form of proof that you will be attending a university for entry, meaning the events are in a controlled and secure environment

Yes, but it depends. Most event organisers and venues allow friends to attend freshers week parties with you providing they are of or around student age, but it’s best to check with them if you’re unsure.
