We’ve recently seen lots of fresher’s events going up on Facebook for September 2021 and, whilst it’s exciting, we wanted to give you a bit of a heads-up….

A lot of the pages are not official Hull University Students’ Union WelcomeFest 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.

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

 

  • All official Hull University Students’’ Union events are branded as ‘WelcomeFest’ - not Freshers.

  • The events will have HUSU’s official logo on them.

  • You can only purchase tickets through hulluniunion.com.

  • All official WelcomeFest club nights take place at Asylum.

 

WelcomeFest will be on the 18th – 26th September 2021; 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.
