Warwick Freshers 2017 – official groups, dates and event info

It’s about this time of year that we start receiving enquiries from prospective students and their parents about various ‘Warwick Freshers’ groups on Facebook which are already advertising what they claim to be the "biggest moving-in events" of the Freshers period.

Unfortunately, the groups in question are NOT official, nor do these events even take place on campus – in actuality, they are completely unconnected to either the University of Warwick or its Students’ Union (SU). Sadly, we experience problems with this situation every year, as external promoters pretend that the events they're running are part of the official Freshers programme, and students are duped into parting with cash for events they often don't end up going to! Many members of these groups are paid reps who aren’t past, current or future Warwick students, while the groups themselves are often used as data-gathering exercises.

The official Facebook group for incoming Warwick students can be found HERE. This group is administered by staff and student officers at Warwick Students' Union, and is the best place to meet actual Warwick students! On this page you will also be able to find a list of official groups for your Halls of Residence.

This is also the place where we will post all details of the official campus Freshers programme as soon as it's confirmed. You don’t need to worry about missing out on any events at this stage – preliminary details of the schedule aren’t usually announced until A-Level Results day (via, while tickets don’t go on sale until enrolment opens in mid-September.

The dates of this year's Freshers period are as follows:

* Welcome Week (for international students & Postgraduates): 25th-29th Sept
* Arrivals Weekend (for home Undergraduates): 30th Sept-1st Oct
* Freshers Fortnight: 2nd-15th October (runs during the first two weeks of term)

So! Sit back, relax and accept no substitutes for Freshers 2017. We look forward to meeting you all in September/October!
