You want a degree, of course, but what’s work without a little play? Here’s the lo-fi track to your new life at uni…
Support at University
Our Advice Centre are here to help you with whatever you may struggle with at university.
Blow off some steam
Sports can be a great way to improve your mental health and make friends – it doesn’t need to be competitive! All our Sports Clubs include a social aspect, so you can take it easy off the field. If you’d rather just get to know some people over coffee, joining a Society is a great way to do that. They’re not all full on, our Societies include everything from gardening to generating awareness for mental health and wellbeing. Taking up a new skill doesn’t need to be stressful, just take it at your own pace.Check them out
Ease your mind
Are you worried that life is going to start without you while you’re wanting to slow things down a bit? That’s where we come in. Our brilliant Advice Centre have a whole campaign around self-care and wellbeing called Ease Your Mind. We’ve got methods to keep your mind occupied and if things get too much, you can always talk to one of our Peer Listeners.Find out more
While university life doesn’t have to be that hectic thing you want to get away from, sometimes you need a bit of fresh air. Being located right in the heart of the town centre means we have great relationships with local businesses. If you need to unwind, there are so many great spots to sit and get a coffee after a lecture. In Huddersfield, you’re never far from greenery either. A short walk will get you far away from the hustle and bustle, where you can just listen to nature. There’s even a full-on canal going right through campus!
Stress free accommodation
Did you know that we have our own student letting agency? Book with HudLets to take the stress out of house hunting.
