Student life

A huge part of coming to university is the social life. You’ve got the opportunity to make new friends, enjoy hobbies new and old, and sample everything the town has to offer.

We have around 85 clubs and societies that you can join, ranging from top sports teams to cheese appreciation. These are run by students and looked after by the Students’ Union, so take a look at the Students’ Union website for a full list of clubs and societies available.

You can also do your bit through volunteering and other charitable opportunities. We have our own volunteering scheme through the Changemaker Hub, or we can help you to get involved with local and national charities.

As well as all the fun things, we also provide a supportive environment for you, so that your life at university is as smooth as possible. We understand that for a lot of people, coming to university is a massive step and we are here to help, whatever you may need. Take a look at our student support to find out what services we provide.

If all of that isn’t enough, Northampton town and county have so much to offer too. We’ve got plenty of culture, sports and history to keep you busy in your downtime. Have a look at our Northamptonshire page to find out more.
