Don’t miss a thing!

The countdown has begun to one of the biggest weeks of the year!

Freshers’ Week is an amazing time at Cardiff University. Every year we get to welcome new students to the city with a great range of activities and events taking place from day through to night. The Students’ Union is at the heart of all of this activity so make sure you come and find us when you arrive.
