London Met’s Freshers’ activity starts on Monday 26 September.
There are two weeks of amazing events and entertainment, followed by a huge Freshers’ closing party on Friday 14 October.
Freshers’ Fairs are in Aldgate campus on Tuesday 4 October, and in Holloway campus on Thursday 6 October.
Most events are free for Freshers, you can get a free entry wristband from our student venue The Rocket, or from our events team at enrolment around the different campuses.
The Rocket bar will be screening Euro 2016 matches where possible, and as a special opening event we will have the bar open for Republic of Ireland vs Sweden at 5pm on Monday 13 June.
The match will be screened live on the LCD screens in the Inner Courtyard (weather permitting), and in The Rocket.
The bar will be open during the screening for students and staff so come down and unwind after work… there will be a free drink for the first 25 customers from 4.30pm and cheap deals thereafter.
All 2pm weekday matches throughout the competition will be screened in The Rocket, with the bar open on other key occasions… depending on how England do!
Hope to see you there!
Matches we are showing so far at 2pm:
Mon 13 June- Spain v Czech Republic
Wed 15 June- Russia v Slovakia
Thu 16 June – England v Wales
Fri 17 June – Italy v Sweden
We can’t wait for Summer, but until teaching ends instead we’ll have a BBQ every Thursday in the courtyard at Holloway Campus!
Delicious street food, giant games, music from Verve Radio and live music from our students as well as comfy deck chairs and more… not to be missed!
The first street food BBQ will be on Thursday 21 April, and then every Thursday if the weather is good!
After Pay Day comes THE PARTY!
