Life on campus

The more you pack into your life as a student at Middlesex, the more you'll get out

Your new life on campus

At Middlesex we've got one of the biggest and best campuses in London. Everything you need is here so you can try new things, gain new skills and make the most of your time at uni and in London.

Whether you’re keen to join a society, get on the basketball court or hang out with your new Middlesex family, here’s how you can get involved in life on campus.

Middlesex University Students' Union >

Your Students' Union - called MDXSU - won Students' Union of the Year in 2017. They're here to help you get the best from Middlesex and make sure your voice is heard.

Join a club or society >

Middlesex has over 85 clubs, societies and student groups on campus. Learn to play basketball, join a gospel choir, advocate for students' rights or join a network of people like you. There are endless ways to do what you love and find your people.

Events on campus

Something for everyone

Live music, comedy, film screenings, quiz nights, balls. There's something going on to match your interests throughout the year from Freshers' Week to the end of term.

Support for your course and career

We host events on campus to open doors, boost your job prospects and help you do better on your course including careers fairs, postgraduate study events and talks about your subject.

Get a student job

Choose from part-time work opportunities on- and off- campus that fit around your studies and holidays.

Find your perfect role

Last year we employed 747 students on campus in over 598 different roles. Choose from Course Ambassador and Student Ambassador roles or work as IT support, as a translator, a fashion model, a musician or a sports assistant.

New skills and new friends

As well as making some extra money, you'll develop a range of soft skills such as team working, communication skills and commercial awareness, all of which are sought after by employers. Plus you'll have a good time with a new group of friends.

More career support

Our on-campus employability service MDXworks is here to:

  • Support you to apply for student jobs
  • Help you find job vacancies just for Middlesex students
  • Connect you with a placement or internship through our links with employers
  • Advise you on getting the job you want after graduation.

Faith and religion

At Middlesex, we come from all over the world and we celebrate our different backgrounds and religions. We encourage you to connect with your faith when you study with us. There is a prayer room on campus and places of religious worship near us in north London and we're here to support you with any other facilities that you need.

More student support

At Middlesex, you'll study and socialise with students from all over the world on campus. Your new friends will open your mind to different viewpoints and new ideas - so you start to think differently.
