University living: Laptops, trips and internships
At the University of Northampton, everything we do, from funded trips to paid internships, is to give you everything you need to make a difference when you leave.
Student Perks | UON
Laptops for students*
Write something. Design something. Change something. We want every student to make a difference.
That’s why every eligible Home fee status student gets a laptop when they study with us. View the Terms and Conditions.
Free Sports and University Societies
You don’t pay to play. All sports and societies are free and any kit is also supplied free of charge by the Students’ Union.
Student Discounts: Gym and leisure activities
We partner with Trilogy Leisure, giving you discount at all their Northampton locations.
Funded field trips
Experience the world, on us. Every course at University of Northampton includes a number of trips that’ll help you develop new skills, discover new cultures and explore new ways of thinking. We think that’s really important. So we fund all travel & accommodation costs on any compulsory study trip.
