In recent years, there have been many companies who try to take advantage of confused students as they prepare for the best week of their lives. We would like to assure you that there’s no need to rush.

The University of Lincoln Students’ Union provides all of the on-campus official Freshers Week events. If you’re ever in doubt about whether an event is official, look out for either the Students’ Union logo, or the University of Lincoln logo.

The University of Lincoln Students’ Union is also affiliated with Home Nightclub. Home’s ‘Union’ and ‘4Play’ events are the only city centre events which are included in the official Freshers Week line-up.

Our Wristbands and Platinum Cards will be released on Thursday 16th August at 10am on our website. Please be very careful and check where you are purchasing tickets from; every year we have lots of reports of students accidentally buying the wrong wristband and not being able to access where the majority of students are.

If you have purchased an incorrect wristband, then please contact the place you purchased it from to get a refund.

Still confused? Feel free to drop a message to [email protected], or find us on Facebook or Twitter.
