    Freshers' 21 is inching closer and closer, and we can't wait to welcome you to campus to celebrate the official RETURN of Freshers' at Newcastle University Students' Union. This year will be unlike any other, with the transformation of campus into the 'Welcome Village', taking Freshers' Week to a whole new level with on-site food trucks, bars, tipis, beach pits & event spaces. We hope you're as excited as we are! To get involved, you will need to purchase an official  Week Pass, which will be on sale from Friday 27th August. Freshers' 21 is open to all new students as well as any second years that missed out on Freshers in 2020.
