Where can I collect wristbands?
All pre-ordered Freshers Wristbands can be collected from Napier Fest at The Three Sisters, Cowgate on Sunday 8th September from 2pm to 6pm. Alternatively, wristbands can be collected from the ENSA Office in Room B34, Merchiston Campus, 10 Colinton Road, EH10 5DT from Monday 5th September to Friday 9th September from 12pm to 4pm.
Where can I get my tickets?
All pre-ordered tickets will be emailed with a QR code from our ticketing partners Native, check your junk mail. Any issues with ticketing please use the chat function on the website.
Do I need ID?
Proof of Age ID (passport or driving licence) will be required for Freshers Wristband collections and 'Over 18s' events. Wristbands can only be collected by the purchaser, as they must be worn from the collection point for the duration of Freshers Week. No refunds will be given if you fail to collect your wristband/tickets, or place an order for 'Over 18s' events and are unable to provide proof of age.
Do I have to be 18 to purchase a wristband?
Yes. Due to Scottish Licensing laws, we are not permitted to have anyone under the age of 18 in any of the venues after 8pm. We appreciate this is not an ideal situation, but it is totally outwith our control. To this end, we have offered an extensive choice of daytime events, along with our free Freshers Fair, Napier Fest, ENSA Challenge and Outdoor Games events, to cater for our younger students.
Will I be able to buy individual tickets for the nightclub events?
Yes, individual tickets are available on our Native booking system here. Ti ckets can be purchased up until the event unless sold out. Some events including the Bonkers, Love Wednesday and The Zoo Party are paid entry at the door.
I’m a returning student going into 2nd/3rd/4th year. Am I allowed to attend?
Yes! Students from all years of study are welcome to attend Freshers Week. It's not just for first years, so get involved!
My friend wants to come to a certain event but is not a student/not at Edinburgh Napier - can they get a ticket?
Yes, you are welcome to bring a friend. Most events are open to the general public and students from other Universities!
Does the wristband guarantee me entry?
Entry will be based on the capacity of the venue - you won't be able to get in if the venue is full! Door staff also reserve the right to refuse anyone entry, even with a wristband, if they are deemed to be intoxicated or a possible threat to other people. So makes sure you arrive early and in a fit state to get into the club!
How do I know if the wristband is going to be worth it?
The wristbands are a very popular choice for students who plan on attending most of the club events. If you plan on going to everything you can save over 30% on the Clubbers Wristbands and 17% on the Explorer Wristband compared to paying for each event individually. However, if you can only make one or two events during the week, we advise that you buy individual tickets for the events you wish to attend.
What does an Explorer Wristband include?
We have two types of Explorer Wristbands to ensure everyone gets to go on a tour of their choice! Select from the two options below to ensure you make the most of your wristband!

My wristband has been damaged, can I get a replacement?
Yes. If you bring your damaged wristband to the ENSA Office in Room B34, Merchiston Campus, it will be exchanged for a new one. However if you lose your wristband, we cannot provide a new one.
What happens if an event is cancelled?
If there is little interest in a certain event, we may change or cancel the event. In this instance, you will receive a refund, where possible.
Can I turn up without a ticket and pay “on the door” at the events?
Yes, subject to availability. Some events are likely to sell-out in advance. Make sure you stay up-to-date by checking our website to ensure you don’t waste a journey. We will make an announcement whenever events are sold out. It is strongly recommended that you buy a ticket in advance to avoid disappointment.
What kind of ID do I need to show?
You will need to provide Proof of Age at the venues throughout the week.
Only a passport or driving licence will be accepted as proof of age. Young Scot cards are generally not accepted by many venues in Edinburgh.
