Hello!

Welcome to the home of Freshers Week 2020!

Heeeellllooooo Freshers! Welcome to the best years of your life!

We are your elected Full Time Officer team here at the Student Union and we’re here to make your Freshers Week and beyond the best it can be. Freshers begins on the 7th September and to help you get prepared, we’ll be updating this Fresher’s website regularly with loads of info about what to expect from Freshers Week, university life, and living in Edinburgh or Galashiels!

Make sure you keep an eye on our social media channels (@HWUnion) for the latest updates. The best way to stay informed is to join our OFFICIAL Freshers 2020 Facebook group. If you’re living on campus you can also join your halls Facebook Group to start meeting your new flatmates. And if you're living off-campus, don't worry we have groups just for you to find others living nearby or en route to Uni!! You can join the Edinburgh Off-Campus group here and the Scottish Borders Campus group here. 

For now, have a great summer - don't worry about those results, you'll be grand! If you have any questions in the meantime then be sure to send us an email, message, or slide into our DMs!

Emily, Colin, Alex & Lara
President, VP Community, VP Education & VP Wellbeing
