Even in a socially distanced, post-Covid world, there are still endless options for going out and having fun...
Student's Union nights
Most universities have a Student's Union on campus. The SU provides support and advice to students and offers you a place to hang out and chill with your new friends.
Most SUs also run live music events and club nights. Traditionally, Monday night has been a popular choice for hosting these kind of events as is Wednesday (typically the sports and societies night out). Both drinks and admission are usually a cheaper than you would expect at a nightclub in town and events are usually for only for students at your uni. Foam parties, popcorn parties and UV raves are all commonplace at the SU and provide a good opportunity to meet new people from different halls and courses.
These venues also often put on a comedy night, quiz nights and film screenings too. Most SUs try to cater for all tastes, so there will almost certainly be a regular event that floats your boat - just don't forget your student ID!
A name you’ll certainly come across at university is Overheard: they run a huge amount of massive nights out across the biggest cities in the UK, and also trips abroad.
This academic year, the Overheard team are putting on another Spring Break Festival in Amsterdam. The event takes place over three days in April, with over sixty huge artists taking the stage. Past acts have included: Kano, Rudimental, Chase & Status, MK, Sub Focus and Hannah Wants.
The first wave of tickets always sells out in flash. But you can register for the second wave right here.
