FRESHERS FORTNIGHT AT THE ROCKET – 22nd Sept to 3rd October
Freshers Welcome starts Monday 22nd Sept at The Rocket!
We’ve been getting fresh all summer sorting out a great welcome package of events for all our new and returning students.
As well as organising the events for the first two weeks, we’ve put together some great offers and vouchers to help you get the best out of Welcome Week! These can be found inside our “Welcome to LMU Freshers Fortnight” guide which you’ll find around the campuses, being handed out by our events team and in the Met Lounges for some casual reading 🙂
Our top pick is the free morning coffee from The Rocket on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday… get involved!
Check out our fortnight of events…
There’s something for everyone with food, drink, games, parties, comedy and even magic!! It’s a great opportunity to get to know other students from all round London and to explore your uni!
Our top tips are the Monday movies with free popcorn and the Full Moon Party on Wednesday 24th Sept with fire performers and free BBQ! The week after, Party @ Your Moms House on Wed 1st Oct for real freshers partying, and the incredible hypnosis show on Thursday 2nd Oct! Every night will be an amazing time so come to as many as possible!
Our top tips for getting the most out of Freshers fortnight!!
It’s all very full on for Freshers as soon as you get to London so here are a few pointers to get the most out of your initial weeks at LMU!
Make sure to get your LMU Freshers Wristband as soon as you get to uni so you can get to all 2 weeks of the events for free.
We will have our Freshers events team out around uni that you can pick them up from, otherwise you can get one from The Rocket Complex and we will also be hanging around all the enrolment sessions giving out lots of info too!
Discounts? YES PLEASE!
Make sure to get a ‘Metcard’ when you get to uni, which gives you great discounts around campus, especially on food, drink, merch and event entry! Our top tip is to use it in The Rocket where you can get the cheapest and best breakfast, brunch and lunch – Mon to Fri, great deals on drinks and event entry. You can also use it in the cafes around campus, and the book shop!
You can get your Metcard from our events team who will happily print it for you while you wait, either at the Faculty Welcome Events, Freshers Fairs or The Rocket venue.
Freshers Fair – for everything you need!
There are two Freshers Fairs, in Holloway and Aldgate Hubs. They are held in the Calcutta Basement Met Lounge (in Aldgate Hub) on Tuesday 30th Sept, and on Thursday 2nd October at the Holloway Hub Sports Hall. They have everything from info on all the great societies and sports teams you can join, to DJs and slices of free pizza… we strongly recommend you don’t miss this one off event at either campus! Top tip: get your NUS Extra card and meet the Student Union. And get your Metcard!
Timings are 11am – 4pm for both events.
Freshers Welcome Party – just for you!
The Freshers Welcome Party is on Friday 10th October and is the last and biggest event of Freshers Fortnight! It’s a huge party with something for everyone, and ALWAYS sells out, so make sure to get your tickets nice and early. Please note this is the only event not included in the Freshers Wristband free entry. There will be a champagne reception, London Taxi Photo Booth, free BBQ, live band and DJs, and especially important, you get 2 free drinks with your ticket!!!
Tickets are £5 student advance (£6 on the door), £7 guest advance (£8 on the door).
Tickets available online soon, find out more on our FB page.
Stay in the loop…
If you want all the latest goss and info on what’s going on socially around uni, you have to get involved with our facebook and twitter – let us know you’re here and get chatting, we’re a friendly bunch, very worldly wise about everything to do with #Londonmet, and would love to meet you!
