On Campus

  • Love the Uni Life

    University can be, and should be, an amazing, enjoyable experience. Here’s my take on how to make it happen.

  • A Very Busy Week 1!

    Finally, the weekend is upon us after what has probably been quite a busy first week of lectures and classes for us all! As a second year history student, my timetable is still relatively busy but nothing quite like you medics and dentists out there working 9-5! Despite that, I thought I’d give a little […]

  • Campus Couches

    The academic success can be difficult to achieve in a distress state of mind. The University of Dundee has loads of support services to help with mental health, finances and such, but to maintain a good feel through students’ courses, it is also crucial to have an environment which is comfortable and inspiring. Such as […]

  • Best Freshers Advice!!!

    Freshers’ Week is almost over, but we can’t forget one of the most important events of the whole week…the Freshers Fayre! On Saturday 8th September, freshers will flock to the campus green to get a glimpse of the many societies we have here at Dundee. ‘So, what’s the best freshers advice?’ I hear you ask. […]

  • My First Year Review

    I’ve come to the end of my first year of university and I’d love to share some of my experiences in a review of the year. Settling into living in Dundee was so easy for me. It seems like it only took me a few days to really get into it and feel like it […]

  • Why you should use the library in First Year

    The library is a great resource available for all students at Dundee, but not many first years use it to their full advantage. Here, I’ll explain why I used the library so frequently during my first year of university and why you should too. Firstly, leaving your flat and going out to the library can […]

  • Best things about living in Dundee

    If you’re new here or if you’re considering coming to Dundee, I’m here to tell you that Dundee is the perfect city to live in as a student, and here’s why: As a predominantly student city, it’s really safe as you’re surrounded by students from both universities. Both campuses are safe and big enough for […]

  • Free Shop

    So you’re moving to a new place. Now what? Hint: You need things.  A lot of things.  Things you probably weren’t aware you were going to need. Things are expensive. Student life is great, but it isn’t always cheap or relatively affordable – especially if you want to eat something other than ramen a few […]

  • The Beast from the East

    On the 26th February to the 4th of March, the UK was gripped by a ‘hysteria from Siberia’. Between UCU Strikes and the snow, any semblance of a normal routine was up in the air, and for some, the university seemed to grind to a standstill. What the extra time during canceled classes did mean, […]

  • My favourite event on campus!

    Holi is by far one of my favourite festivals. Think of it as a massive colour run, with loud music, dancing and just good fun.  Holi is the Indian Festival of Colour, celebrating spring, love and the triumph of good. Linked to multiple stories of Indian mythology, it’s steeped in culture and tradition. Of course, […]
