freshers 2017 lands in

freshers 2017 is brought to you by leeds beckett su and is the ultimate start to the year!

Whether you’re coming from overseas, from the north or south, or just round the corner, coming to university is an exciting time. There are so many possibilities and things you can try out, so check out the fantastic line-up of events we have planned just for you!

Also, take a peek at our teaser video for a glimpse at what’s to come! >>>








“Officially” it should probably start on Monday 18 September, but we’ve been a bit cheeky and thrown some events in on Sunday 17 September! Either way, there’ll be lots of things happening between Sunday 17 through to Saturday 23 September!

A Fresher is someone who is just starting out in their first year of university. Freshers week is dedicated to helping firsties pave their way through student life by helping them meet amazing people and getting to know Leeds!

The Official Leeds Beckett SU Freshers Wristband gets you into the following:

– Freshers Beach Party feat Marcel from Love Island*
– Antics @ Pryzm*
– All-Day Freshers Fiesta**
– Projekt @ O2 Academy*

*Guaranteed entry before 23:30
**Guaranteed entry before 18:00

You can still enter the event with your wristband after the specified times, however, it can’t be guaranteed just in-case the venues reach capacity.

Wristbands are an incredible £20! What’s not to love about that?

As long as you are 18 on or before Tuesday 19 September and have valid ID then you can purchase a wristband or ticket. Any problems? Please contact us at

Once you have purchased your wristband you can collect it by bringing along your eticket (either printed or on mobile/tablet) to:

– Get Fresh on the Acre | The Acre, Headingley Campus | Sun 17 Sep | 18:00 – 21:00
– SU Helpdesk | Level 1, Portland Building, City Campus | Mon 18 – Fri 21 Sep | 10:00 – 16:00
– Freshers Beach Party | The Stage, City Campus | Tues 19 Sep | 22:00 – LATE


You only need a wristband to get into 4 events: Freshers Beach Party, Antics @ Pryzm, Freshers Fiesta, and Projekt @ O2 Academy.

Most of our events are free, we just recommend that you double check any that might require an entry fee.

Yes! You’ll be able to buy tickets for individual events that feature on the Freshers Wristband at a later date providing that all of the wristbands don’t sell out.
