Welcome to We Are Freshers, your only OFFICIAL Bournemouth University Freshers programme brought to you by your Students' Union.

We advise you not to purchase any tickets for any events at present as we feel it is irresponsible for any event organisers to be selling them not knowing when restrictions will be lifted by the Government. Official BU events will not go on sale until we know when restrictions will be lifted.

 

You will of course be informed! Ensure you sign up online, and join our Facebook Group for all official updates.

FAQ's

WHAT IS ‘SUBU’?


SUBU is your Students’ Union, you are automatically a member when you enrol as a student at BU (you will do this online before you get to BU, (take care to “opt-in to SUBU” ! We are a registered charity and all the profits from any commercial activities go back into funding a huge variety of student activities and projects, clubs & societies and the helpful Advice Service, all of which make your time at BU even better. What’s more all our part-time staff are students and we endeavour to be ethical and environmental in what we do, so you can feel good about spending in your SUBU outlets.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat to stay up to date with all of our news!




WHAT IS THE OLD FIRE STATION?


The main BU venue on Lansdowne Campus is run by SUBU. From Club Nights, Live Gigs and Comedy, The Old Fire Station has it all. Profits made at The Old Fire Station are returned to SUBU and other than 4 full time staff, The Old Fire Station only employs students on its bars, technical and promo teams.




WHERE CAN I FIND SUBU ON SOCIAL MEDIA?


You can find us at FB.com/sububournemouth and @SUBUBournemouth on both Instagram and Twitter.

IF I HAVE AN EVENT IDEA OR WAYS TO IMPROVE THINGS FOR THE FUTURE AND OTHER STUDENTS, THEN HOW CAN I BE HEARD?


You could email your us at - subu@bournemouth.ac.uk as we are always hungry for your feedback, or message on Facebook or Twitter. If you would like to become a part-time officer at SUBU then the elections happen in October so keep your eyes peeled on our websites.




WHEN WILL EVENTS BE ABLE TO TAKE PLACE AGAIN?


We are working under Government restrictions. As it stands, all events throughout Summer are cancelled. We are working extremely hard to organise a Freshers for you. We are just unsure of WHEN this will be. As it stands, we are working towards a September Freshers Fortnight.




WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SEPTEMBER? DO YOU HAVE A LINE-UP?


As mentioned, we are keeping a close eye on the Government restrictions. This will play a huge part in how Freshers will work for the upcoming academic year.




I'VE SEEN OTHER EVENTS ADVERTISED ONLINE. . WHY DON'T YOU HAVE ANY?


DON'T BUY!!
We advise you not to purchase any tickets for any events at present as we feel it is irresponsible for any event organisers to be selling them not knowing when restrictions will be lifted by the Government. Official BU events will not go on sale until we know when restrictions will be lifted and we will inform you on our website when it is safe to book them. In the past people have had real difficulties obtaining refunds from some event organisations In Bournemouth, so be careful and our advice is don’t buy. Remember official BU events will have the BU or SUBU logo on them.




WILL THERE BE CLUB EVENTS?


We are organising Freshers as normal. We Are Freshers takes pride in organising events for every one to take part in. We are just unsure as of when certain events, such as nightclub events, will be able to take place. Once we have clarity from the Government, we can work on our events and when we will be able to bring these to you.




HOW CAN YOU TELL IF AN EVENT IS OFFICIAL?


All of our We Are Freshers events are clearly branded with the BU and SUBU logos and are run through this and the SUBU website (www.subu.org.uk) or the official Facebook group: Bournemouth University Freshers 2020 (Official)
