There's more to student life than studying and Warrington offers plenty of opportunities to socialise.  We do everything we can to make your campus experience one you’ll never forget.

Sports and fitness

Sport means a lot to us at Warrington, and our excellent on-campus facilities prove that. Pursue your passion or learn to love a new sport.

You can use our all-weather floodlit pitch, indoor multi-purpose sports hall, rugby and football pitches, a two lane running track (350 metres) and the gym.

Sports available include Badminton, Basketball, Football, Futsal, Hockey, Netball, Rugby Union and Volleyball.

Our Fitness Suite is conveniently located on campus, so you’re free to nip in for a quick gym session before or after lectures. 

Free personal training sessions, health and fitness assessments and unlimited access to exercise classes are all included in our budget-friendly gym membership packages.

Societies are a fun way to meet new people who share the same interests as you. Here's a taster of what's on offer at Warrington:

Winner of Society of the Year in 2015/16, the Photography Society is pretty much what it says on the tin. If you’re passionate about taking incredible photos, this society’s for you. 

LGBT+ are a society dedicated to raising awareness of LGBT+ issues, and creating a safe space for LGBT+ students to meet and socialise. It’s a hugely supportive and exciting society to be a part of.

Academic societies are also available at the University. In the Nursing Society, you can share tips, advice and your own course stories over a drink or two.

If you have a passion for Scrabble but no one to share it with, join our Board Games Society. It’s a relatively new society, but already very popular.

Relax and refuel

Studying is thirsty work. If you’re wondering where you’ll be spending your time between lectures, or where you can pick up some top quality grub, there are a variety of catering hotspots on campus.

The Terrace Café Bar is a relaxed space for a snack with occasional live music performances, while the Garden Dining Rooms provides a range of meals throughout the day.

If you’re craving a caramel macchiato while you study – you’re in luck. Warrington campus has a Starbucks for your convenience.

Students enjoy a drink at the bar

By day, Warrington's on-campus bar is super-chilled and a great place for a study break. You can catch-up with friends, play a little pool and enjoy a bite to eat.

By night, it’s a different story: Bar Twenty10 hosts the perfect night-out. Its themed nights are legendary, we’ve hosted Monster Munch Parties, Popcorn Parties, UV Bubble Parties, Foam Parties and indoor Snow Parties.

When your legs are tired from dancing, we also have comedy nights, karaoke, and pool and pub quiz leagues, which are held throughout the week.

We love live music at Bar Twenty10 and regularly welcome up-and-coming bands and popular DJs to perform. In the past, a number of incredible artists have taken to the stage including MistaJam, Rudimental, Pendulum and Ms Dynamite.
