This is it. Your official welcome to Leeds Arts University Freshers 2021! Alongside your elected Student Executive Officers and society leaders, your soon-to-be very own Leeds Arts Union has put together a whole week full of Freshers events and activities for you to have fun, meet new friends and enjoy a good old fashioned Yorkshire welcome to Leeds and the University! 


The best thing to remember is that everyone’s in the same boat when starting University. That’s why the events during Freshers are suited to both groups and individuals. The calendar includes events for all different tastes, with many that are chilled, arts-orientated, and most importantly, free! Whether you love a good movie binge and chill, fancy getting stuck in with some creative workshops, want to soak up the sounds of the best live music in Leeds or you can’t wait to be immersed in celebrating everything creative – there’s something for everyone!

So between now and September, it’s time to get excited! Go ahead and join the official Leeds Arts University Freshers Facebook group where you’ll find all the events and up to date info, sneak peeks and special prize draws. We say this a lot and will start to sound like a broken record in a few months’ time, but if you have any questions at all please get in touch; you can reach us on email or social media.
