Thousands of university students flooded the streets of Birmingham last night ahead of Freshers’ Week coming to a close on Sunday. 

Broad Street was packed with freshers and other revellers as they formed huge tightly packed lines to get into some of the party strip’s most popular venues, including Rosie’s Laundrette and Pryzm. 

Balmy temperatures of around 18 degrees celsius saw scores of skimpy outfits, with many girls opting for short skirts and crop tops. 

One reveller was pictured sporting an inflatable pink flamingo around his waist while another girl had brought her chihuahua in a clear backed rucksack. 

Several young university hopefuls stopped to pose for a picture as they their way from club to club.

Freshers’ Week kicked off for the majority of universities across the UK last Sunday and will end tomorrow on September 26.

Last year, festivities were cancelled due to the pandemic, but the party week has been busier than ever this year.

On Monday night, hundreds of students were pictured queuing to get inside Birmingham’s Coyote Ugly Saloon while the bars surrounding the canal basin and Brindley Place were packed with revellers.

One student, Samantha, 18, said: ‘My mum and dad have both had the vaccine, as had my nan. I’ve just had my vaccine before I got to uni so as far as I’m concerned Covid is over for us.

‘It’s basically like flu or a heavy cold. We all need to crack on with life. We can’t run scared anymore. Life’s too damn short!’

Despite warnings of an expected spike in Covid cases following the influx of students starting university, many freshers expressed little concern.

A first year student studying English, who gave his name as Andy, earlier said: ‘It’s been carnage tonight but who can blame us?

‘The pandemic has taken it’s toll on everyone but students have been cooped up, unable to meet up or have any fun.

‘As soon as the bars were open everyone went mad. It’s been a hell of night but it’ll be worth the hangover.’
