Freshers' Week Wristband

The FW23 Wristband is the only official University of Bath Freshers' Week Wristband that gives you access to the campus-based exclusive events for University of Bath Freshers. The wristband gives you access to our five flagship arena nights as well as priority access to other exclusive FW events.

Our arena nights are one of a kind, held in a huge sports hall where over 2000 freshers can party together each night. There will be different themes with a variety of different acts and entertainment, providing you with the perfect introduction to life at Bath. View the What's On page to see the range of other events on offer in Freshers' Week.

The wristband can only be purchased once you’ve registered with the University and your SU account has been activated.

Included in your wristband is a FREE official Freshers' Week t-shirt. You will be given a T-shirt in your hall colours upon arrival*, a perfect memento of an unforgettable week! *t-shirt sizes may be limited.

Wristbands are now SOLD OUT! 

You can find details of all our events and purchase event tickets via our What's On page.

There will be opportunities to purchase tickets to Arena nights on the door. Wristband holders will get priority so we advise you to get there early to avoid disappointment. 

Please note Wristband purchases are non-refundable.

As The SU, we are organising the only OFFICIAL Freshers' Week for University of Bath students but there are other organisations out there that are not affiliated with us that will put on their own Freshers' events. Please be advised that we are in no way affiliated with any of these companies and cannot vouch for safety or value for money at their events.

Here are a few tips to help you identify whether the events are organised by us or not:

1. Are they selling tickets or wristbands already? If so, they are not affiliated with us as our wristbands do not go on sale until Monday 11 September.

2. If the social media accounts and events are not linked from this website then they will not be affiliated with us.

3. Be mindful of the branding used. Are they using our logo or Freshers’ Week branding? If not, again, it is unlikely they are affiliated with us.

So please be vigilant when purchasing tickets/wristbands for events or taking on jobs through other Freshers' organisations. If you are in any doubt about whether or not an event, page, or post is associated with us, please do email us on: © 2023. All rights reserved.
