During Freshers week you will undoubtedly feel a whole host of different emotions from excitement to sheer terror. This can be your time to shine, especially if you are looking to reinvent yourself after school and college.
Freshers week is your time to put yourself out there a little because this particular week is something you might just remember forever. You don’t want it to regret it.
Luckily we’ve got some great tips to help you avoid the regrets and live your best uni life.
Don’t Be Shy
Every single other person there is in the same boat as you and are probably feeling pretty shy too. Go along to freshers events, talk to your new flatmates, sign up to societies and sports clubs and attend those pub crawls.
Embrace all the opportunities that come your way.

And do it swiftly. Freshers flu is an actual real ailment and you don’t want to further your sulking while feeling poorly away from home if you can’t even get anything for it, or worse still, have to travel home for a doctors appointment while feeling absolutely rubbish.
Try Not To Think Of Home Too Much
You only get on freshers week, don’t ruin it by pining for home. Focus on the here and now and making a new life for yourself at uni. The quicker you do that, the quicker you can enjoy yourself.
This may sound obvious but don’t blow your budget on Freshers week. I know you want to have the time of your life but do remember you actually have to eat and you know, live after that week and you may not have any money coming in imminently. Budget for each day so you know how much you can spare and realisticaly spend.
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
