There are a lot of students that go to Edge Hill and they all have their own opinions, however there are some things you will NEVER hear an Edge Hill student saying and I’m going to tell you why!

  1. There’s nowhere to eat 

Edge Hill’s campus is full of places to eat, in all different locations. Firstly the hub has at least four places selling food and drink, from McColl’s if you just want a quick sandwich or a packet of crisps to the dedicated food counter that serves and array of hot meals. On top of that you have Water’s Edge with it’s wonderful view of – you guessed it – the lake, the Red Bar located in The Arts Centre for when you’re peckish mid-rehearsal and Café Rewind in the Health building. There are many other places to get food on campus, we really are spoilt for choice!

  1. There’s no decent accommodation

As I, and many other student bloggers have mentioned before, the campus is ever expanding. We are constantly hearing of new developments and new accommodation being built. In my time at Edge Hill they have added an entire new cluster of flats called Palatine Court, and they are currently building more over the old running track. All of these buildings are decked out with fancy extras such as en-suite bathrooms, TVs and computers. To say that Edge Hill doesn’t have awesome accommodation would be totally untrue!

  1. There’s no sports facilities

As of September 2015 Edge Hill has been the proud home of Edge Hill Sports Centre, a new purpose built facility, not just for sports students. I often frequent the place to swim, the pool is probably one of the nicest I have swum in and not to mention the changing rooms are fantastic. The fact that they not only have cubicle showers (as opposed to those awkward communal ones) but hair straighteners (yes, this is a big deal to me), shows Edge Hill’s attention to detail when they were designing the building. It does not just stop at the pool though, there are so many other facilities such as a gym with in-built entertainment technology, exercise studio, 8 court sports hall and much more. That’s just on the inside, there are also football, ruby and hockey pitches, an athletics track and an outdoor 2.5km fitness trail with exercise equipment.  Who says students are lazy?

  1. The campus is ugly

I’m going to answer this in the form of pictures –

  1. You can’t get a job

Edge Hill has a great policy on student employment, they offer so many different job opportunities for their students from working in the SU bar or sports centre to student ambassadors and student bloggers *flashes a smile* But if you don’t want a job on campus the Careers Centre is always there to help you find a part-time job. They constantly post updates on Facebook, Twitter and their webpage for different vacancies, but if you’re still unsure you can book and appointment and an advisor can point you in the right direction – they’re very helpful like that.
