To support your wellbeing you are able to enjoy a lunchtime stroll across our beautiful campus, book to get a trim from our onsite hairdresser, your car valeted, or get together with colleagues over free food and drink to watch the latest film on one of our Film Nights and so much more.  

This is just a taste of what we are able to offer you at Edge Hill University
