Student Life

On campus, TheHub is the centre of student life: it is the place to gather, grab a coffee with friends, have a meal, see a band in the SU, or just hang out. In short – it’s TheHub of campus life. But there is also the University’s Sports Centre just across from TheHub, and the Westwood Heath Sports facilities with floodlit AstroTurf and grass pitches for football, hockey, rugby and cricket. There are nearly 100 clubs and societies for you to join – a great way to make new friends. We realise that many of you will need to take a part-time job while you are at University, so we even have our own on campus recruitment agency: thefutureworks.
