Be Sociable

Get out there, makes some friends, try some new things, take part in the special events. everyone is in the same boat as you, and come deadline season those memories may be the only thing keeping you sane.

 Join A Club

Hull University offers literally hundreds of sports teams and societies, have a go and try something new, expand your horizons (cough, cough, join Lacrosse, cough). Who doesn’t like the idea of touring the country in BUCS leagues  and destroying Russel Group teams on match day  combined with the best social events on offer, culminating of course with TOUR!!!

Attend Your Lectures

Its all well and good having fun, but at the end of the day we are all here to get a degree. Don’t worry the bars aren’t going anywhere.

The 4 Best Locations for a Student!

So it is that time where you have to do that dreaded thing called studying. Here are the 4 best locations to study for a student.

1) Did you know the library had;
✔ Group Learning Rooms – Perfect for group assignments
✔ Reading Rooms – For when you need perfect silence to read
✔ Interactive Projector Tables (Situated on the 7th Floor) – Great to get those creative juices flowing and free to talk aloud.

2) While this one may sound odd, studying outside can actually help you increase your brain power. Imagine sat outside, in the warmth, with the freshly bloomed flowers. Can feel the brain power already.

3) With the seating area designed for you to be sat by yourself or with a group it is a great location to study. With only a few peak times for noise it is perfect place to talk aloud and cracking on through that assignment but most importantly, you have coffee at an arm’s distance away.

See for your self! ☕
