On Campus

  • What’s in my Uni bag

  • Living in a Private Let Flat

    The move from home to halls is difficult enough, but most of us take that next step in second year and go onto living in a private let flat, which is a whole different kettle of fish. After living here for about 4 weeks now, I think I can comment on it, even though I […]

  • Open Days!

    Well, UoD undergraduate open days are over again for another semester! I’ve helped out at the History stall for the past two semesters and I absolutely love it. It’s such an amazing opportunity to really sell the university and encourage people to come to Dundee, as well as to take History modules of course! (I’d […]

  • Staying Safe on Campus and in the City

    As someone who had never lived in the centre of a city before moving here, I had some questions and concerns relating to my personal safety before I moved here.

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

Such as […]

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 […]
