Freshers' Fayre

Our Freshers' Fayres are the best way for you to discover all the amazing activities you can join in as part of RUSU. It's also a great moment to get to know other students and make friends!

RUSU sports clubs, societies, media and volunteer groups will all be there as well as a whole host of commercial companies and charities. Come to the Fayres and chat to the students that run RUSU's sports clubs and societies, find out what they're about and ask any questions.

Really keen? Can’t wait? You can even join sports clubs and societies online before you arrive. You will need to register on the RUSU website. Once you have enrolled in September you can log in with your University details.

The Marquee

The Fayres will be located at The Marquee, in Car park 4, on the side of the Students' Union building.


3sixty plays host to a plethora of commercial and charity stalls all tripping over each other to give you free stuff in return for a moment of your attention. Make sure you drag yourself out of bed during our Fayres and get down to 3sixty to reap the benefits as different companies attend.
