Freshers Pass

Buy your Pass now!

New Undergraduate or Postgraduate student? Haven’t decided yet which events you want to go to yet, or just fancy trying a bit of everything during Welcome Week? No problemo! The Freshers Pass (available to both UG and PG students) costs £60 and guarantees you entry into all the SU-run evening events taking place in The Copper Rooms during Welcome Week (subject to Terms & Conditions below), plus the Paint Party in Week 10 of Term 1!

Freshers Passes, Annual Passes and individual event tickets go on sale at Noon on 10th SEPTEMBER 2019 via

In order to purchase tickets or passes, you will need to have enrolled and set up an IT account with the University (details of how to do this are up at Step 3 here). Once you’ve done this, you can use your details to log in to the Students’ Union website!

Aside from saving you money on individual tickets, the big advantage is that you don’t need to worry about events selling out or having to buy any event tickets during Welcome Week – they’re all ‘built in’ to the pass, so you simply swipe your University Card on the door and it’ll get you in. Simples!

Freshers Passes cover the following paid-entry events:

  • 23rd Sept: Foam Party
    24th Sept: Hall Wars
    26th Sept: Urban Festival
    27th Sept: Playlist
    28th Sept: Freshers Party
    29th Sept: Comedy Society Presents...
    30th Sept: Warwick Salsa Presents... Latin Fever
  • 6th Dec: Paint Party

    (n.b. Evening events held in The Terrace Bar and The Dirty Duck are all free entry. Please note: as they take place outside of term-time, the Club MTV Welcome Parties on Saturday and Sunday of Welcome Week are NOT covered by the Freshers Pass.)

General Terms and Conditions

  • - All attendees need to present photo ID featuring proof-of-age to gain admittance – for Warwick students we accept student cards, but guests will need to bring along legally acceptable photo ID (e.g. passport or driving license).
  • - Unfortunately, students under the age of 18 are NOT able to purchase a Freshers Pass or attend night-time club events in The Copper Rooms. While we apologise for the disappointment this will cause to the minority of you who are affected by this issue, it is strictly a legal requirement - in line with UK licensing law, it is illegal to admit under-18s to our nightclub. If you turn 18 during Welcome Week, you are able to purchase a pass, but it will not be valid until your 18th birthday.
  • - Readmission is not allowed once you have left an event.
  • - You are still subject to the Students’ Union’s event admission procedures and can be refused entry or ejected if you breach these.
  • - If you are banned from the Students’ Union at any time, your Freshers Pass will cease to be valid without recompense for the duration of the ban. So, you know… behave yourself!
  • - Your student card and tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable – you cannot lend them to anyone else, and individual event tickets cannot be ‘sold’ or transferred over to other students.
  • *** Please note that entry to events is only guaranteed before 11pm. *** After this time, you will be admitted if the venue capacity allows, but this cannot be guaranteed!
  • - Demand for all events during the first few weeks of term is extremely high, so we strongly recommend you get there ahead of the 11pm deadline if you wish to attend!
  • - There is no dress code for any event at Warwick SU, including the Freshers Party. (That said, we did have a streaker once, and he got chucked out fairly quickly).
