Welcome week


Welcome Week is packed full of events and activities. You'll make new friends and start finding your way around campus. You'll feel at home in no time. 

During the week, you'll complete your registration, receive your student ID card, meet our finance and support teams and take part in wellbeing sessions.

Your Freshers' Week – which you can find out more about below – runs alongside Welcome Week and is organised by our Students' Union. We've got some great events planned for you, including your Freshers' Fair, Frat Party and Beach Ball!

Your academic induction
During your academic induction (in your first week), you'll meet your Programme Manager. They will be there to meet you and welcome you to Hartpury. You'll find out about your course and what happens next. You'll meet your new classmates for the first time here too and start getting to know everyone.

You might like to take a look at your academic timetable for 2019/20. See what your time at Hartpury looks like and start planning ahead.

Freshers' Week

Your Freshers’ Week runs at the same time as your Welcome Week to provide the social side of your enrolment. It’s a great way to meet your new friends and get to know our beautiful campus.

Our Students' Union (SU) will organise a packed schedule of events and activities for you and your news friends to get involved in.

Last year, we kicked off Freshers' Week with a big House Party. Live music, drinks deals and friendly staff provided the perfect opportunity for students to start to make friends and settle in.

From themed parties to a pub crawl through Gloucester - Wednesday night is student night - there was plenty going on. Take a look at last year's guide below for a flavour of what you've got to look forward to. We'll send your guide in August, so you can be ready for one of the biggest weeks of the year. 

Legends bar will become one of your favourite hang outs on campus. It's your space to chill out on the sofas, play some pool, watch the TV and chat with your mates. It's also where lots of your SU events take place during the year - don't forget to get your Freshers' wristband when you arrive so you'll never miss a party!
