Student Life

Get involved in student life!

These are some of the best years of your education, so make the most of the time you’re not in the lectures! There’s always something going on at Newton Rigg College, whether you want to try your hand at climbing, have a go at rowing or join our growing selection of clubs and societies. You can even enjoy free bus trips out to bowling, swimming, shopping, or to the cinema. We also run specialised trips such as ice skating, culture tours of the Lake District and to local sporting facilities, organised by the Student Experience Team and run by the College Wardens.

For sportsmen and women there’s no shortage of sports to take part in, with regular fixtures and the opportunity to compete and represent the College in a broad range of sports. The on-site College gym and climbing wall are also available for students to use and fitness classes take place regularly throughout the week.

Our Students' Union representatives are always on hand to listen to new ideas, questions, comments and concerns and to ensure that you, as a student, can get the best out of college life. There's always a wide range of activities to take part in on campus, from quiz and film nights to regular discos and much, much more!  You can become a member of Newton Rigg’s Students' Union and gain access to the NUS which offers great student deals in food, fashion and entertainments.

The student experience is a big part of college life and the more you get involved the better off you’ll be. Joining sports and societies is a great way to enhance your skills, ideal for building your CV and above all to meet new people and grow in confidence.

You can sign up for any sports, clubs, societies and activities or enquire about new ones by speaking to the Student Support Office or by phoning 01768 893400.

Check out our Facebook page to see what's going on in the SU.
