Being a student doesn’t just involve going to lectures, studying in the library and hanging out in the Students’ Union. Early childhood studies student Evangeline Holland gives you an idea of what she gets up to on a typical day.

There’s a lot more to student life than studying. Check out our Teesside bucket list for our recommendations on what honorary Teessiders should try out while they’re here. Whether the great outdoors is your thing or you'd rather have a good knees up in town, there's something for everyone.

Students’ Union


The Students’ Union is a great place to meet people and get support when you need it. It offers food and entertainment, sport, clubs and societies, support and advice, a jobs service and also a shop which meets all of your everyday needs. The bar offers a variety of meals and drinks throughout the day, whether you pop in for breakfast after your 9.00am lecture, or make a night of it with friends.
