Unofficial Fresher’s Events

July 15, 2019

We’ve recently seen lots of fresher’s events going up on Facebook for September 2019 and, whilst it’s exciting, we wanted to give you a bit of a heads up….

A lot of the pages are not real fresher’s events! Some of them are business pages that use ‘Freshers’ as a way of getting your data from Facebook for marketing purposes, some get you to ‘like/join’ a group and then will totally change the event.
A few of them may even get you to pay money or buy a ticket - we don’t want you to buy a ticket to an event that simply doesn’t exist.

So, how do you know if an event is an official Hull University Union event? There are some key things to look out for:

•    All official Hull University Union events are branded as ‘WelcomeFest’ - not Freshers.
•    The events will have Hull University Unions’ official logo on them.
•    You can only purchase tickets through the Hull University Union/Fatsoma website. 
•    If it's a club night (not at Asylum) - make sure you buy through the official ticket sellers. 

WelcomeFest will be on the 14th – 28th September 2019; with fairs, Give-It-a-Go events, nightclub events in Asylum and loads more going on around campus. Tickets are not yet on sale, but keep updated on our social channels for when you can bag one.
