You've made it!

Welcome to Robert Gordon University from everybody at your Students' Union. Our team are currently working hard to give you a Freshers Week that you won't ever forget, and we've been dying to tell you the line-up!

This year's Freshers events start on Sunday 8th September. We will have daytime, evening and night events taking place every day from the 9th through until Saturday 15th.

Expect top club nights, celebrity appearances, amazing DJs, an epic FREE film festival, city tours, BBQ's, sports events, wild theme nights and so much more! We're also excited for the third annual RGU FreshFest event, where we take over the famous Aberdeen Beach Ballroom with three stages full of live stand-up comedy (headline act announced very soon!), the biggest student pub quiz, Scottish ceilidh room featuring live ceilidh band (in association with RGU ResLife), silent disco with live DJs, bars, plus more more. Keep your eyes peeled for act announcements.


This year we have teamed up with the city's newest and biggest nightclub, Atik, to bring you a week full of massive headline events, from top DJ sets, wild theme parties, celebrity appearances, meet and greets and much more! You can be part of every night by buying an RGU Freshers 2018 Wristband.

This wristband will get you free entry to all RGU Freshers Week 2018 events taking place at Atik, plus our very own RGU FreshFest 2018 event which takes place on Tuesday 11th September.
