The average fresher will spunk £187.20 this Welcome Week, The Tab can reveal. 

A typical night out will set you back £37.44, and 45 per cent of your budget will be splashed on alcohol.

The week will raise over £800,000 for the city as 4,350 freshers prepare for what promises to be the best week of their lives.

The Tab calculated the cost assuming all freshers would:

·         Go out five nights during Welcome Week

·         Make at least one drunken homesick phone call

·         Gorge on a Mr Chips doner kebab and chips each night

·         Buy seven drinks out a night, as well as predrinking before

·         Get the last bus in and share a cab home

And you can add another £40 if you throw up in the taxi, although the corner of Concert Square is usually free.

Mel Mousdale, who will be studying Law this September, said: “£187.20 isn’t a lot of pay, especially considering the amount of events taking place during the week.

“But I think the clubs hosting events should take into consideration that £60 for a wristband is a lot for students to pay, and should think about making drinks a bit cheaper or doing some kind of deal.”

Lauren Fowler, who’ll be starting at Liverpool Hope in September, said: “It’s a lot of money to pay out, especially if you don’t have a job.

“And for people who aren’t staying in the halls, like me, it’s going to cost a lot more in taxis.

“I wouldn’t feel safe getting a bus home on my own at night, despite that being cheaper.”
