Freshers week kicked off for the 2020 UCLan students on the 13th of September. This is a great chance for students to make new friends, get involved in the student community and see what clubs are on offer. For returning students, as well as freshers, and those that are self isolating, there is something for everyone planned this week. And with a global pandemic in full swing this year, socially distanced and virtual activities have been implemented for the first time. So what do these involve?

Online activities for UCLan Freshers week 2020

There are a number of online/digital activities you could take part in this year as part of Freshers week. These include:

  • Speed friending using the Glimpse app- this is an app designed to help you meet other new students online so you can get to know the people on your course, as well as other people on campus.
  • Virtual escape room- This is an interactive, team-based virtual escape game for teams of 6. You can join with friends you have already made, or you can buy an individual ticket and be put with other people from campus. Either way it’s sure to be a lot of fun!
  • Virtual comedy night- this is and exclusive and interactive night of comedy just for you, from the comfort of your student accommodation, featuring three high profile comedians. This could be a great way to spend quality time with your new flat mates.
  • Online quizzes
  • Virtual parties/discos
