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!

FRESHERS FORTNIGHT 2015 KICKS OFF AT LMU ON MONDAY 21ST SEPTEMBER!
We have some great events and activities in store for you this year in and around campus, with all the info to be released soon…
There will be club nights, cocktails, cake, bingo, BBQs, beer, lights, llamas (seriously) and laughs!
GET YER WRISTBANDS
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. It’s completely free for all first year LMU students.
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!
And don’t forget to pick up a ‘Metcard’ when you get to uni, available from The Rocket Complex at the bar. It’s completely free and 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 and the best coffee on campus.
Freshers Fair is held on Tuesday 30th September in Aldgate Hub and Thursday 2nd October at Holloway Hub. Everything from info on all the great societies and sports teams you can join, more free stuff than you can carry, DJs AND free pizza… we strongly recommend you don’t miss this event!
