Wristy business…

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!

The Metcard is your ticket to great discounts at LMU

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 2014 is on Friday 10th October, 8pm - 2am!
