Freshers’ Festival is Back: The Biggest Student Event of the Year

As you’ll know Freshers’ Festival has dominated our student calendars by providing the crème de la crème of the city’s finest eateries, fashion brands, clubs, pubs, accommodation, job opportunities and more! This is why we’re psyched to announce the long-awaited return of the biggest and best event of the year.

After swarming George Square in their thousands last year, weighed down with goodies and grasping fistfuls of pizza, the city saw students from all walks of life embrace the best of what Glasgow has to offer.

This year’s extravaganza will take place once again at the iconic George Square, 20th and 21st September. As well as an eclectic showcase of the fiercest attractions and brands in the city, there’ll be unique interactive opportunities for networking, careers and personal development.

And what would the Freshers’ Festival be without the freshest freebies, competition prizes and entertainment? We already have an awesome array of goodies up our sleeves including the return of FREE Papa John’s pizza as well as prizes, discounts and offers from the coolest haunts in the city. If that’s not enough you’ll also get to soak up some sweet sounds with our live entertainment, get involved in our new experiential zones, fill your bags (and buckets) with freebies and get the chance to experience, discover and celebrate student life in Scotland’s most exciting city.

Exclusive prizes and freebies

To avoid FOMO, make sure to download the event app yada and be the first to hear about exclusive prizes, goodies and showcases.

And if you’re keen for even more sensational city events, then check out the Freshers’ Fringe, a month-long festival featuring 60+ events from club nights and menu tastings to employment seminars, personal development workshops, shopping events and arts events.
