Life at Herts

University of Hertfordshire

So you’re here to study – to build your skills and get the qualification you need to kickstart a rewarding career. But university life is about so much more. You’ll grow as a person, make lifelong friends and enjoy a rich variety of memorable experiences. You’re in for an amazing journey and we’re here to make it as exciting, interesting and rewarding as possible.

Our friendly students are on hand to answer your questions whether you’d like to find out more about campus life, courses and what it’s like to study at Herts. Our team of staff are also available to help with any specific course and application queries.

Stick around

No need to rush home after classes, you’ll find plenty of spaces on both campuses to study or relax. If you need to get stuck into some work, you can head over to one of our libraries or find a quiet spot to access Canvas, a personalised online learning environment where you can pore over course materials and lecture notes.

When you’re done for the day, pop into one of our many cafes or eateries, or find a sunny spot on our wide open green spaces. You’ve earned it.

Your Students’ Union

Right from the start there will be lots for you to get involved with including a fun Freshers’ Week organised by our Students’ Union. With more than 100 societies from Anime and Manga to Urban Dance, we encourage you to get stuck in and meet new people.

Let your hair down

This September we will be opening our brand-new bar and nightclub – The Loft and Seventy7. We’ll see you there for club night! While the Ele House pub next door regularly hosts quizzes and poetry nights if you fancy something a bit quieter.

Hatfield itself is a small but busy town with popular pubs, restaurants and high-street shops, while nearby St Albans offers a host of music venues, an arthouse cinema, theatre and famous cathedral (where you’ll graduate in a few years’ time!).

And of course, you’re less than half an hour away from a little place called London which has, quite frankly, everything.

Get active

We’re big believers that sport and fitness are for everyone. Complete beginners, part-time participants, competitive amateurs and elite athletes – all are welcome in the HertSquad family.

Our dedicated, multimillion-pound Sports Village features a well-equipped gym, pool, squash, badminton and basketball courts, football pitches and climbing walls. We also have another gym at The Oval, where you can take fitness classes in everything from roller-skating to Zumba.

Supporting your wellbeing

When you join Herts, you become part of our family and that means we are always here to support you, no matter what – we’ve got your back.

As a Herts student you can access counselling, mental health and disability services, careers advice, study support and much more. All our services are here to ensure your time at Herts is fun, rewarding and as stress-free as possible so make sure you reach out if you need us!

Whatever help you’re looking for, our experienced, highly trained team of experts are here to provide the emotional, practical and confidential support you need to thrive here at Herts.
