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.
After Pay Day comes THE PARTY!
Join us at The Rocket on Thursday 3rd March for #TakeMeToRio – we’re bringing Rio Carnival to Holloway!
Have a Caipirinha cocktail and dance to Brazilian carnival music fused with popular chart hits! DJ RNT knows how to get the party started. He’ll provide the Brazilian Bossa Nova/Samba sound, a little bit of Afrobeats, Soca and of course some House Music!
The 1st 50 people to arrive will get a FREE whistle! Dress as colourful as you like – photos will be taken on the night by Sharpington Photography. We have a special performance on the night from Taste of Brazil carnival samba dancers … You CAN NOT miss that!

London to Nepal
London Metropolitan University is holding an evening of entertainment in support of Nepal. You can expect great food, dance and live music. Come to see the students and staff of London Met performing on the night, including The Last Hurrah (the University staff band) and many more. You will experience a Far East atmosphere mixed with British culture. There will be great prizes in the raffle (you get free raffle entry with your event ticket), a quiz to take part in, and exquisite items in the auction!
Come to celebrate different cultures with us and support a good cause on Thursday 18th June. The event is in The Rocket ground floor venue from 6pm.
Please book your tickets on tiny.cc/londontonepal. Bring partners and friends, everybody welcome!
(Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian – I.D will be requested).
Well, it will end soon. Trust us. And what better way to celebrate when it does by having a party at your favourite student bar. We’re talking about The Rocket Complex of course. The big end of summer party 2015 is coming to you on Friday 29th May, and it’s going to be the best yet.
90s Glow Rave main room – There will be more glow sticks than you can fit on both wrists, and glow paint for those that want it. We’ll be playing all of your favourite chart, dance and house music, plus a few golden oldies for good measure.

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.
