A guide to surviving Freshers’ week


The Corn Exchange, Leeds city centre

Put yourself out there

Freshers fair — September 2019

Look after your body

Keep hydrated — before, during and after nights out

Fill up on food

Eating regular (and healthy) meals is essential — plan to eat before going out

Watch your drinks

Keep watching your drinks, and never leave them unattended

Know who to contact

Plan in advance how you’ll get home safely

You can say no

It’s OK to say no and have some quiet time

Relax and Rest

Quiet time away from it all is so important

Get Creative

It’s not all about going out! Game night anyone?


Settling isn’t something that happens overnight. Talk with your housemates and family.
