This years SUBU Freshers' Fair is on Saturday 23rd September 2017 10am - 3pm, and will bring the arrivals period to a climax for 5,000 new students and 13,000 returning students.
The SUBU Freshers’ Fair is a huge exhibition that is free to attend for 18,000 BU students. Included in the fair are lots of local and national businesses together with a collection of live entertainment, sports demonstrations, music, food and drink!
There are 5,000 new first year students to the area each year.
We have welcomed Spotify for three years running, and over the years they have filmed the majority of their Freshers' Fair Tour at our campus... plus we filmed extra footage to hopefully give you a feel for the fantastic atmosphere.
Keep up to date with exhibitors attending this year by liking the Official Freshers' Fair Facebook Page.
This Year the BAM Marketing Agency toured Freshers’ Fairs across the UK from Scotland to the South coast, surveying thousands of students and hundreds of stallholders to compile the most detailed research forming a Top 20 Freshers’ Fairs of 2016. SUBU are proud to come top of this list with a staggering 98% positive feedback from exhibitors and students. SUBU were measured against some other great Student Unions and Universities across the country so represents a great achievement. The full list of the results from other Freshers’ Fairs and survey highlighted results can be viewed by clicking here. .
So if you missed Freshers’ 2016 or wanted an opportunity to meet our students again, then this is your chance to book a Freshers' Fair Stand.

This year's Fair is on track to be the greenest yet. We have made commitments to increase recycling, composting, ban plastic bags and offset our emissions by planting tree saplings.
Our greatest partners in this environmental effort are our commercial stall holders, so this year we are offering an incentive to host a green and sustainable promotional stand!
On the day of the Fair our Green Taskforce students will be on hand and will score the sustainability of your stand. If you fulfil all 5 points on the criteria, you will receive up to £200 worth of student marketing, subject to availability and excludes posters. The full list of marketing options can be viewed above and can be claimed up to the end of December 2017. To download the sustainability criteria please click here:
