Welcome to Robert Gordon University! The teams at the Students' Union and across the University have been working hard all summer to finalise plans for this year's Freshers events.

We have kept a close eye on all guidance provided to universities and unions to ensure we can give new and returning students the best and safest welcome possible to the 2020/21 session at RGU and we're excited to announce a line-up of over 100 virtual events and activities taking place throughout Freshers 2020, including ice breakers, live music, entertainment, quizzes, competitions, Q&A sessions, workshops, cook-alongs, life hacks and much more!

There will also be lots of opportunities for you to find out about our different societies, sports clubs, groups and networks, and to chat with other students from your course and school. Find out more below, and don't forget to join the official RGU Freshers 2020 Facebook Group to keep up to date with the latest Freshers news and updates.
