Student Activities

Northern College recognises the importance of the student experience as a whole and offers a wide range of activities and events for students to take part in outside their studies. Our Student Activities Organisers work closely with the Student Union Entertainments Officer and external providers to deliver an enjoyable programme of social activities. We also endeavour to provide family activities in The Dairy (our recreation centre) from time to time. You will see the Activities Bulletin displayed in several places around the college; this will give you up-to-date information about what activities are on offer whilst you are studying with us. Most of our activities are free for our students and their children. If you have any suggestions or comments regarding student activities, please contact us on or call into the Student Services Centre.

Metrodome Leisure Centre

The staff and students are able to use some of the facilities at the Metrodome in Barnsley free of charge. Please call in to Student Services and ask us for details.
