Time to Chill

It’s not all work and no play here at Riseholme. We understand the importance of enjoying yourself away from your studies and whether it’s getting to grips with nature or the hustle-and-bustle of city life that appeals to you, you’ll have plenty to keep you going.


We have a number of cafes and student lounges to relax in. Our restaurant offers a wide range of hot meals, snacks and refreshments for all students, staff and visitors and caters for different dietary requirements.

It’s open every day.


The Student Bar is located in the Tennyson building and is open to all students.

With a range of social activities including quizzes, ‘Riseholme’s Got Talent’, parties and film nights, there is always something going on.

Out and About
