    Hey,

    I was just wondering is the Uni of Newcastle just full of nightlife, are there any alternatives like when you don't go out and that? Also is it a big campus or a small one and is it easy to meet new people?

    Thanks

    There are supposed to be a lot of societies for different interests, but many students choose Newcastle based on its legendary nightlife...
    It is a big campus, and it should be easy to meet new people if you stay in the halls, you might be at a disadvantage if you don't go out often because of the above.

    It is (literally) in the centre of a big city so there should be plenty to do

    It was voted #1 student city on several recent polls.

    I hope to go in 2010

    Great nightlife! I'm sure there's lots of things to do other than that whilst at uni. And, yup it's a big campus in the middle of town.

    I'll be starting either there or northumbria uni which is in the same city next month so I'll let you know then. I've been to newcastle a few times though and I love it. Good for going out, nice food, culture, the quay side is lovely and it's close to beaches. Theres lots of societies you can join at the uni to meet people with your interests. Should be good.

    BEACHES!!!! Yeah there are loads of active societies that don't involve drinking (much). There are even non-drinking freshers events! Mental.

    Newcastle as a city is fantastic, yes there is a big nightlife culture but there are loads of other things to do as well. Mostly people go to the Gate complex for a night out, and near there.

    Really? I've been in the Gate only once, to go to the cinema. I don't think students go there really. Sinners all the way though!

    My friend works at Sinners, I don't like it, it smells awful. I think a lot of people start the night out at the Gate like in the Players lounge and Lloyds and then move out into the town later on.

    There is plenty of stuff to do. What do you enjoy doing? What would you like to try?

    It's not all a load of students trying to lick each others throats out whilst inebriated.

    Well Newcastle is famous for its night life, I wouldn't say people come here just for that though. There is lots of stuff to do in terms of societies / clubs as well as things in the city (cinema, museums, etc).

    The campus is quite big, in the middle of town. There are various places to eat and relax around campus. Meeting new people at uni is easy. Although staying in halls for your first year is definitely an advantage.

    If you have any more questions, just ask (about to start my second year in September).

    Hi, me and three other lads are coming up to Newcastle for my mates 25th birthday. We have never been up before and wondered where was good places to go. We are coming up in the half term, mon 26th Oct- fri 30th. As we won't be here for the weekend I wanted to know whether it would still be busy in the week? I imagine there will be a lot of student nights on? Does anyone know if you need student ID to get into these bars/clubs? We also need things to do in the day, all of us are into are sport, music etc so any recommendations? Cheers Scott

    There is a club called Digital next to the Centre of Life in Newcastle. On a Monday evening 11pm - 3am it has a 'Born in the 80s' club night. On a Thursday it has 'Stonelove'. Both are immensely popular events. On the 'Born in the 80s' night entry is 80p, selected drinks are 80p before 12am and £1.80 after. Arrive early as queues get big.

    There is also Liquid nightclub which is quite cheap on a thursday (and maybe tuesday).

    There is also Aspers Casino in the Gate Complex.

    TigerTiger next to the Gate is also popular and has just been refurbished. Its often that people start there night out in The Gate by visiting the bars, particularly Playas bar.
