The Student Hub is a friendly community hub to bring together students and organisations. Why not drop in for a chat, have a cup of tea, a light snack or just take advantage of a quiet space.

For new students, it will be a chance to learn from others, get a bit of advice, and gain a few tips on how to cope
with uni life.
