Whether you're embracing student life for the first time or returning to it for another year, one thing's for certain - there will never be another time in your life quite like university. You'll never be thrust into a situation like this again, where you'll meet such a huge number of people, be exposed to a whole host of brand new experiences, or get to have so much fun - and we'll be on hand to help you get the most out of it.

As the UK's biggest what's on guide, Skiddle.com has everything you need to make the most of your university life - from dingy raves in darkened rooms to decadent, goliath sized festivals and sweat-drenched mosh pits - we've got it covered.

In our nationwide Student Guide, we'll help direct you to some of the very best venues, clubnights and live music haunts around the country, helping you find the events you love for that all important socialising and down time which is such a vital part of university life. The guide also includes all you need to know about student travel, cheap places to eat, health and fitness and much more - the information you'll need to settle into your new hometown.
