Your time at university is the best time of your life - your chance to gain independence, embark on new adventures, make lifelong friends and pursue your dream career. That’s why we’ve made sure you never run out of things to do while you’re with us.

Sunderland is one of the best value cities to live and study in the country and with our two Sunderland campuses located in the heart of the city and within walking distance of stunning coastline and sandy beaches, you’ll never be short of things to do.

We’ve taken care of everything to make sure your time at university is a memorable one. We have a huge range of activities for you to get involved in, and with more than 50 Clubs and Societies for you to join, from Water Polo to Pole Fitness, you’ll meet likeminded people who share your interests.

Our Students’ Union was rated in the top 5 in the UK in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2015, and gives you an exciting and never-ending packed programme of events to explore.
