All new students at NTU will get a free Freshers wristband when they enrol. This wristband grants them access to Freshers events, though they will have to pay an entry fee on the door to access many events. To get more value out of Freshers Week, you can upgrade to a Wristband+, which not only grants you free access to NTSU's Freshers events, but also gives you priority q-jump entry and free transport*.
We estimate that a Wristband+ will save you £12 on average compared to paying on the door, assuming you would like to get involved in a full programme of Freshers Week events. We also offer a range of packages which include other items as well as a Wristband+, increasing your overall saving compared to buying the individual items separately. See below for the different Wristband+ packages that we offer.
Wristband+ gets you special discounted entry and queue jump for official Freshers 2017 events, spanning 8 nights from Friday 22nd September to Friday 29th September 2017.
Purchasing a Wristband+ means you'll get FREE entry to official NTSU Freshers events, including Kickstart, UV Rave, Trent Army, Trentfest, Silent Disco, Comedy Box, Bingo, Mexican Fiesta, Food & Beer fest and much more. You won't have to pay on the door, and you'll save money over all compared to paying for individual entry to each event.
Also included in the price is priority q-jump entry and FREE coach travel from halls of residence to evening venues* all for just £45**.

Wristband+ is for NTU first year students over the age of 18 only (see definition of first year student below). In order to gain entry to events where alcohol is being served, a wristband must be accompanied by one of the following forms of 18+ age verification ID: passport, driving licence or PASS accredited card (see www.pass-scheme.org.uk for details). Failure to present one of these forms of ID at the venue will result in you not being able to attend the event. ID will also be required for collection. Entry to nightclub events is valid before 11pm. After 11pm entry will be allowed if space permits. Comedy and film events have a limited capacity so space cannot be guaranteed. Rights of admission are reserved by each venue. Coaches will only be provided for halls of residence outside the city centre. Space on each coach is allocated on a first come, first served basis and is not guaranteed. Offer available while stocks last. Freshers’ entertainment programme details correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change. No refunds are available.
By purchasing this wristband you are confirming that you will be a NTU first year student during the academic year 2017/18 (see definition of first year student, below). You will be asked for proof of your first year student status at the point of collection. No refunds will be given to purchasers who are ineligible to attend Freshers’ events. You will need your NTU student ID number in order to purchase your wristband. To receive your individual NTU number and e-mail address, please call the Admissions Department on 0115 848 4200.
NTU first year students are those that have accepted a place on a full-time or part-time course starting in September/October 2017 at Nottingham Trent University or a Nottingham Trent University Higher Education Course at Confetti Institute or at Nottingham College.

Students that have relocated from another university and are enrolling at Nottingham Trent University for the first time are also included. Any students retaking part or all of their first year are also classed First Year Students.
