RGU Freshers 2022


10th-17th September


Freshers is a week long extravaganza of events to welcome all new and returning students to RGU!

All summer we, at the Students' Union, have been working with RGU to plan a whole host of events for you to enjoy, including opportunities for you to meet new friends, get to know campus and get involved with student union activities. This year we have over 80 events, from club nights to comedy, movie screenings to Freshers Fair, study skills to sports day and much more! Check out the full line-up and buy your wristband here!

Frequently Asked Questions  Volunteers required


Please note that all official RGU Freshers wristbands and tickets will be sold through our website (www.rguunion.co.uk) or our official ticketing partner, Native (rguunion.native.fm). Unfortunately, every year we see scammers trying to target students with fake wristbands, tickets and events. Please always be vigilant and double check if a company is legitimate by referring to our website.
