Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is regularly hailed as one of the best cities for student life. It’s partly due to the city’s compactness, which makes it large enough to be vibrant and exciting while small enough to feel like home. It’s also due to the sheer number of students: one in every six people in the city is a student.
The Students’ Union offers a great social scene at the heart of our City Campus. The Union building features three award-winning bars and it’s the venue for some of the biggest club nights and gigs in Newcastle. There are a huge range of clubs and societies that you can join. With all our thousands of students, there are sure to be people who share your enthusiasms and want to try new activities.
If you enjoy any sport at any level, we’re the place to be. Join Northumbria Sport or learn a new sport and make use of fantastic facilities that include our £30 million flagship ‘Sport Central’. You can also add a different dimension to student life by taking advantage of our partnerships across the world – perhaps registering for a summer program in another country or completing part of your studies abroad.
