Due to the limited capacities of each event, we try to ensure that priority is given to Students of DMU to attend events taking place through Freshers Week. We appreciate that coming to university can be daunting and you may feel more comfortable with someone you know coming along therefore you may bring a +1 guest to events where tickets for that event are available. Guests will need Valid Identification (Passport or Driving License) as well as an advance ticket to attend events with you. 

Will Photo ID be required to attend events?

All events where Alcohol is available or being served will require a Valid form of Photo Identification. You must bring one of the following acceptable forms of ID; a Passport, a Driving License or ID card bearing the Pass hologram. 
Photocopies or Pictures will not be accepted. Management reserve the right to refuse admission without explanation.
