Visit a botanical garden in your area. Some may be ticketed, while others will be free, so check online to see which ones are near you. Here, you may enjoy being immersed in nature, see the greatest autumn colours, and get into the autumn spirit.

Take A Walk

You can go for a walk in your local park or nature reserve, just like you would in a botanical garden. This is a great way to socialise with your friends while taking in the autumnal colours around you. This will encourage you to appreciate your surroundings and allow you to become acquainted with your student town or city. Remember to dress warmly for your walk, with knitwear and a scarf.

Visit A Pumpkin Patch  

If you’re searching for a fun way to spend time outside this autumn, consider visiting a local pumpkin patch. You may have to drive to one, so it would be advantageous if one of your friends had a car and you could chip in on the petrol money. Pick out your favourite pumpkins and carve them!

Carve Pumpkins

Carving pumpkins with your friends and housemates is a fun activity. They are available at your local grocery or pumpkin patch. Find some inspiration online, like on Pinterest, and then cut them out. This is a fantastic way to decorate your home for Halloween!

Relish the taste of autumn! Pick up some hot chocolate or one of those wildly famous pumpkin spiced lattes from your local coffee shop. Enjoy what these shops have to offer because they only come once a year!

Have An Autumn Picnic

Have a picnic at a park or at your university’s common. Wear warm clothing and bring a variety of snacks and meals to share.

Go To Outdoor Seasonal Markets

Look for outdoor markets in the heart of your town or city. Here you may enjoy the autumn spirit, buy some decorations for the season, and eat some of the food on offer. These markets will take place throughout the autumn and winter leading up to Christmas, so keep an eye out for when they begin.

Have A Cosy Movie Night

Organising a cosy movie night is a fantastic pastime for this time of year. To set the tone, watch a spooky movie with your friends or housemates. Prepare food & beverages to share for the occasion, such as popcorn and baked goods.

Hopefully, this post has given you some ideas on how to spend your free time at university and get into the autumn spirit.
