Attention all uni students: give those fingers that have been tap-tap-tapping away at your end-of-semester assignments a rest. Instead, get those thumbs moving because it's time for a huge party that you'll want to swipe right on. At Thredbo x Tinder Uni Week, you'll spend six whole days of shredding — first on the snow, then the dance floor. Thredbo has taken pity on those surviving on the humble Mi Goreng toastie and is offering all uni students a five-day lift pass at a discounted rate of $379 — with some sweet themed parties to boot.

The week kicks off on Sunday, July 22 with a traffic light-themed party at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel's Keller Bar, where DJs will soundtrack your night from start to finish. On Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, it's the Ski, Swipe & Party events where DJs like Indian Summer will take to the stage. Monday night will require you to wear 'anything but clothes', Tuesday is a good old ugly sweater party and Thursday's theme is 'I can't believe you wore that'.

Wednesday brings Jye's Jam, an urban rail comp at the Friday Flat stairs, followed by an after-party where you'll don your best headwear (the theme is 'party hats'). And if all that snow has you dreaming of somewhere more tropical, the week will be capped off with a Fireball Full Moon Party on Friday night to transport you to (an admittedly very snowy) Koh Pha-ngan. Grab your glow sticks and get partying.
