Myerscough College isn't just about studying - it’s about enjoying yourself and having fun! OK, so going to College is about working hard and passing your exams, but on the way you definitely deserve a little rest and relaxation – and Myerscough College has got it all!
We've a great choice of social activities taking place throughout the year on-campus and off campus. These provide fantastic opportunities to try something new and make friends with other like-minded students.
Chill out on campus
If you want to relax after your College work, then you’ll find all sorts to interest you on campus. There are lots of places for you to meet up with friends in an easy-going sociable atmosphere. There are also hundreds of different organised activities, parties and theme nights, as well as our legendary highlights - the Myerscough Christmas and Summer Balls.
You can get involved in all these events, since the Students’ Association organises most of them - they’re always looking for good ideas, and for people to help out... especially during RAG week! In fact, if you fancy getting involved with any of the social and sports activities at the College, just put yourself forward for election to one of the student committees that arranges the events. There’s also a full range of enrichment activities organised by teaching departments within College - from course-related visits and guest speakers to charity fundraising events.
The Stumble Inn is one of the main social centres at the Preston campus and is the perfect venue for many of the activities on campus. With a main room for discos and bands, it also has a separate annex that is equipped with pool tables, a number of arcade video games, jukebox and big screen TV facilities. The Student Common Room and Snooker Club provides additional areas for relaxation. We've also got some of the best sports facilities in the whole of the North West, so you’ll always find something exciting to do without having to travel far!
Whether its social sport amongst friends or playing for one of the College teams there’s plenty to keep you fit and healthy!
Myerscough hosts an array of teams and clubs for you to join. From the Duke of Edinburgh Award and Scouting to fishing, badminton, cheerleading, rock climbing, archery and numerous sports teams, there is something for everyone! And don’t forget that you’ve also got access to more than 40 clubs and 30 societies at UCLan’s Preston campus nearby. You’ll have a great opportunity during “Intro Fortnight” to join up with these various groups during their freshers social events!
A word from the Students' Union President
"Myerscough is a great place to study. As well as having excellent teaching facilities and great staff, Myerscough students also benefit from a lively and interesting social scene. All social events and facilities are run by the MSU (Myerscough Student Union). The MSU's aim is to entertain and amuse all students no matter what their interests may be/ Event nights such as discos, battle of the bands, hypnotists, comedians, pool competitions and pub quizzes take place each week in the Stumble Inn, the MSU's student centre. Social nights are also run by the College's wardening staff each week. These include nights out to places like Blackpool, Preston and Lancaster as well as days out to Chillfactore, and the Trafford Centre as well as go-karting, paintballing and bowling. So whatever you're into, you're sure to find something that you'll enjoy."
