Freshers Fair Priority Access Hour, 10am - 11am on Saturday 5th October. 

We want our students with children to have the best Freshers Fair experience possible. Freshers Fair will be open and giving priority access to students with children and disabled students from 10am -11am, so that they can benefit from a calmer and less busy environment, in order to access the many different stalls and activities on offer.


There are also a number of Chill Out Zones along the route of Freshers Fair, open all day (10am - 4pm) for anyone who needs to take a break. These are conveniently located near toilets and baby change facilities, and will be identified on the Freshers Fair route map (P/L/006  - Exhibition Centre;  D/L/036 - Derwent College, V/N/044 - Vanbrugh College). Members of YUSU staff will be popping along to chat to people in the Chill Out Zones throughout the day.
