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.

Want to stay up to date with our Freshers' club nights? Add @YPlasCSU on Facebook and Twitter to follow our night club team who will be releasing all the exciting news as it happens!

Club Nights

We host some of the best events in the city, and during Freshers' Week we take it to another level. With a different event every night, live acts, cool themes, awesome tunes and a lot of very happy students. Taking place in venues throughout the building, including Y Plas 


Joining a society, a sports club or becoming a volunteer are all great ways to meet new people. To help you decide on what activities you want to get involved in, we host a range of fairs throughout the week so you can find out what options are available. 

Give it a Go

Are you looking for something to during the daytime or want a fun alcohol-free activity to get involved in? Our Give it a Go team have got a whole range of stuff planned from city centre tours to days at the beach and trips to Ikea.
