The Student Centre is a hub for student activity at the University. Here you’ll find Advice and Support services, our Freshers' Week information point, access to the bar and nightclub and numerous food outlets. There are many tables for you to come and just chill with friends in between events. 

During Freshers’ Week, The Student Centre also hosts the incredibly popular Pizza and Board games throughout the week
