The University of Law encourages a community feel at each of its centres, and so students will find a lively social scene at whichever one they attend. Each centre has its own social committee made up of students who organise nights out, balls and other events. Each centre also has lots of clubs and societies – these are all run by students and so the exact clubs and societies on offer vary depending on what students want – at present there is everything from rugby, football and netball to rock climbing, cooking, and book clubs, right through to yoga and wine tasting.
Centres often have links with local charities and support these through a range of fundraising activities throughout the year involving both staff and students. They also offer other activities for students to participate in which will help develop their CV, for example the Share Challenge (where students choose a ‘fantasy portfolio’ of shareholdings and monitor them over a period of months, the Business game (where students act as a board of directors to a fictional company and must try to increase the shareholder value), interviewing competitions, negotiation competitions, mooting competitions and mock trials.
The University of Law does not own any accommodation itself, but we can help you find somewhere to stay. Once you’ve accepted a place with us, you can access our online accommodation databases which will help you to find one of our listed properties to rent. You'll also have access to the 'Housemate Finder' service on our ELITE student portal and our Housemate Hub group on Facebook - to help you fine a suitable housemate to share with.
