Get acquainted with Southampton nightlife

Navigating Southampton’s nightlife has been a hot topic amongst many of you on our social media sites and during our Twitter #SotonQandA, but we have the ultimate solution to help you seek out the entertainment hotspots and clubbing favourites.

After an incredible intro into student life complete with our packed Freshers’ programme, grab your housemates on Thursday 13 October and join 5,000 other students to tour 10 of Southampton’s finest bars and clubs in the city’s biggest crawl.

For just £12 a ticket, or FREE entry with our Freshers’ Master Pass, you can sample:

  • Tokyo
  • Buddha Lounge
  • 90 Degrees
  • Popworld
  • Switch
  • Oceana
  • Orange Rooms
  • The Social
  • Vodka Revolution
  • Warehouse

What if I want to go back to a venue?

You’ll get free movement between these venues with your ticket (you’ll need to be wearing your t-shirt – see below for details), so you can try them all and pick your favourites.

How will I find my friends?

Our Halls Committees and Freshers’ Reps will get you all together in Halls before you go, so you can go down together. Don’t forget that Big Night Out (BNO) is held after Freshers’, so you will have plenty of opportunity to make friends before the event and during!

Is it safe?

We’re very conscious of your safety. Freshers’ is all about having a good time, so we’ve got it covered. We organise Big Night Out with our official partners and we have a good relationship with the venues and security. Southampton Solent also invites their students, so it’s a very student-based environement. We also offer a Safe Taxi Scheme to get you home safely once the party’s over.

Can I go if I study at Winchester School of Art (WSA)?

We will provide free transport (with our Freshers’ Master Pass) for all WSA students to take you to and from WSA. All our Freshers’ events are for ALL STUDENTS, not just Freshers’, whether you study in Southampton or Winchester! Feel free to join us whatever year you are in. The more the merrier, we say!

How do I get a ticket?

This is one of our most popular nights, so don’t miss out. Tickets are already flying from the Box Office, so make sure you get yours at:

www.unionsouthampton.org/boxoffice

Each ticket = 1 t-shirt for you to don for the whole night. That way, you won’t miss the Freshers and know where the party is at! You will need to wear your t-shirt on the night to ensure entry. We will release more details about ticket and t-shirt collection nearer the event, so keep your eyes peeled!

How can I find out more information?

Find out who else is going on our Facebook event, read our Master Pass FAQs and then get in touch – we’re happy to answer any questions you have.
