We have a Tesco Express on campus. It's open 7:00 am - 11:00 pm, seven days a week. Making it very convenient for our students. Perfect for those weekly grocery shops or the occasional snack during the day.
Living on campus, you won't have to go far looking for events, because they happen on campus. The union's regular club nights or live music events are the place to be. No long walks or taxi fares to worry about.
There's a sports centre located on campus. You'll not only have a gym next to you, but also, badminton courts, squash rooms and regular classes to attend here. Just pop in and see what else is available for you to get involved in.
