Direct Entry: Student Life

What will life be like at Edge Hill University? We’ve got a dedicated Student Life team who are here to make sure you get the most from your experience.

Events and activities

You’ll find bespoke events and activities taking place across campus throughout the year. These will help you to:

  • make new friends and connections
  • find out more about ‘extra opportunities’
  • boost your mood and improve your wellbeing

The Student Life Portal

A great way to keep up to date on events is through the Student Life Portal. It’s a ‘what’s on’ guide where you can search for different types of events and activities. They fall into 6 different categories so searching for what you want to do is easy to do:

  • Developing you
  • Industry links
  • Going Global
  • Having fun
  • Getting Active
  • Exploring the Arts

And your view of the portal is entirely personal to you. So, once you’re here, get logged on. And start exploring.

Campus Connectors

Our brilliant team of Campus Connectors will help you get to grips with uni life, find out what’s on and help you make new connections. They’re on hand most days in the Hub. And they’re easy to spot in their purple hoodies. Ask them a question about whatever you need, and they’ll be happy to help.

During your first week you can also join us for a Campus Connections afternoon. It’s a chance to meet new people and try something new. Attend a games café, or a plant session. Try drumming, dance or even a TV Film workshop. Feeling active? Have a go at our assault course.

We’ll also be holding a free lunch and fun event on the Boulevard (just outside the Hub) on Tuesday 26 September. Just turn up to get involved.

During Induction week all departments within the University come together with the Students Union to help you settle in and feel at home. We hope you enjoy what’s on offer and get a great start to your time on campus. Check the student life portal for updates of when and where to go.

Living on campus?

If you live on campus, we have a busy and varied Residential Life programme of events just for you. There are monthly coach trips, cooking lessons and interhall competitions. Or why not try some of the activities we have put together for you to do in your flats? Not to mention everything that’s going on in the Sports and Arts Centres.
