STUDENTS flocking to Huddersfield this week are being offered a wide range of help.
Officials from the Students' Union at the University of Huddersfield have drawn up a detailed plan to ensure problems are quickly tackled.
And they have drafted in an enormous number of officers to ensure that the queries of 4,000 students here for Freshers' Week are answered.
The union actions come as students attend induction sessions at all the university schools.
The new academic term starts next week but the campus is busy with hundreds of new arrivals.
John Goodwin, the union's communications officer, said: "The main message we want to get across is that the Students' Union is not just a bar serving cheap beer.
"We are here for all manner of inquiries and we want every student to know we can help.
"Yes, there is a big entertainments programme for Freshers' Week, with something on every night, but there is a lot more involved.
"We have the Freshers' Fair tomorrow at Huddersfield Sports Centre and there will be up to 50 clubs and societies from the university letting the new students know what is on offer.
"We welcome any new societies to try and ensure there is something for everyone.
"Money can also be an issue. We do have a system of bridging loans in place if student loans do not come through on time and we have advisers who can talk to students facing problems, now and later in the year.
"The union can also help with part-time work, as we employ a number of students in jobs in the bar, in the shop and on union business.
"We are here to offer help and advice on pretty much anything. We want people to feel welcome to Huddersfield."
