Getting fed up with red bull and vodka and waking up with a hangover from hell? We’ve put a few ideas together that will not only make you feel better health wise but you’re bank account is sure to say thank you for doing something else other than going out.
Take a trip to the cinema or what about a comedy club? It’s a good laugh and generally pretty cheap. If that’s not to your taste, the theatre is also a good idea – productions are always touring the UK and it doesn’t have to be expensive if you don’t mind the restricted view.
Join a society
Joining societies are the best ways to escape normal University life and a good way of meeting people who are in to similar things you’re into.
Staying in is the new going out
It’s time to break out the duvet, order some pizza and make some popcorn for a girls night in (or boys). Order your pizza and get settled in and then make your viewing choices. Movie or TV marathon?
A great way to remedy this is to take a day and go round visiting all of them, one cup of tea at a time. Spend an hour with each and move on, having a good catch up and filling yourself up on their biscuits while you go!
Treat yourself to a face mask, put some moisturiser on and get a hot chocolate – perfect for those nights you have to yourself.
Be a kid again
Laser questing, trampoline parks or paint balling are fun ways to get out and do something different at the same time as releasing some energy!
Get up and do some exercise
Go to the gym: it’s warm, there’s TV, radio and showers, if you paid the hefty fee at the beginning of term, and you’re finally feeling like you’re being good and burning off the extraordinary amount of chocolate you ate last week. Even if you don’t want to pay for the gym, you can still go for a run for free. This is an especially good idea in exam season when exercise can be a really good break.
Try to start a tradition of cooking a nice meal together every Sunday and splitting the cost. You can do a roast dinner for £1.50 each and it gives you all a chance to catch up and remember why you moved in together in the first place.
Go out for a meal
After all the essays and exams and general stress, occasionally it’s nice to treat yourself by having dinner at a restaurant. Plenty of places do discount codes and student discount and have vouchers you can download to get your meal cheaper. Having a night where you can eat nice food and drink a glass of wine with your friends is an enjoyable break.
Do some work?
It’s better for your stress levels if you start your work early rather than putting it off, leaving you plenty of time to do fun activities after it’s all done!

Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Excelente ubicacion, atencion y servicio. Muy cuidado todo, las recepcionistas siempre ayudando y dando atencion. Lo recomiendo.
I had an excellent experience living in Brickworks during the last year in Dublin! All the staff members were always very friendly and did everything they could to make people feel welcome and we had a very good atmosphere among the residents. The flats themselves were comfortable and provided excellent living and working space, and the proximity to the city centre means you can experience the Dublin atmosphere. I have met many people and friends that I will take with me for life. If I were to live in Dublin, I would not hesitate to live in Brickworks again, it really was a great place to live!
I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
