All events begin at 7pm in the Students’ Union bar on Cottingham Road and there will be a late bar on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
“We want everyone to have a really good time as soon as they start at university,” said SU events co-ordinator Lisa Jordan.
“This is the last year we’ll be at Cottingham Road before we all move to the city centre campus and we’re determined to make this one a year to remember.”
The university is expecting over 430 first-year students to arrive in Hull next weekend for the new semester which begins on Monday 16th September.
