Freshers Is Coming!

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!

Freshers Is ComingGET 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!

DISCOUNTS

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.

The Metcard is your ticket to great discounts at LMU
