Coventry University Freshers Week 2023

Details haven’t been confirmed by the university as yet, however it’s likely that Coventry Freshers Week will be held the week before teaching officially starts on Monday 25th September. Based on previous years, students can expect plenty of events, including the classic Coventry Freshers Fair where you’ll find information on societies, sports and student services as well as a few freebies.

Until details are confirmed we recommend keeping an eye on Coventry Uni’s Student Union for the latest updates on upcoming Freshers Week events. Even if you’ve already applied and have been accepted, you’re still free to check out Coventry Uni Open Days if you’re looking to spend some time immersed in student life before term starts.

Warwick University Freshers Week 2023

You get double the fun in Warwick Uni as events take place over a Welcome Weekend on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th September 2023, alongside Welcome Week which starts Mondays 25th September 2023. Warwick University has lots of events planned for students including theme nights, sports and societies fairs and live music. Keep an eye on the Student Union website for updated information or wait until the invitation arrives for your Offer Holder for Warwick Uni Open Day if you’ve already been accepted.
