Why Fylde?

Check Out Just A Few Reasons To Pick Fylde Here and Loads More Below! 😀

We’re located right at the heart of campus, a five minute walk to nearly anywhere on campus, perfectly placed to be close to all of the activity that goes on, both during the day and night!  While Fylde is known as the “Home of Sport” because we dominate nearly all leagues and competitions (we’re better than the other colleges!), Fylde also excel in the academic side, supporting and developing our students so they can achieve their potential!  If you’re looking for a competitive and supportive College with great sporting prowess and a great sense of community, then you’ve come to the right place.

So what about the fun side?  Fylde has some of the best socials and events on campus, with nights out to Manchester and Liverpool, alongside numerous events held in the college bar!  The socials and events officers work hard to create an exciting and diverse social calendar, which include days out to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Chester Zoo, a weekly pub quiz, the Christmas Ball and so much more!

Fylde Extrav is also one of the best on campus, continuously selling out of all their tickets and having an amazing line up of music and talent, last year having a band who came second on “Must Be The Music” Sky talent show and had two top 40 hits!  With societies, student bands and a whole load of fancy dress, Extrav is one of the best nights of the year, and everybody wants to be in Fylde when it happens!

Fylde has a diverse and exciting buzz to it, and that’s partially down to how we celebrate diversity in our College.  Fylde has one of the biggest Equality, Welfare & Diversity teams on campus with 5 officers on our Exec team who organise brilliant campaigns, initiatives and events.  Each year ,we host a fantastic Chinese New Year celebration and have recently also started Fylde Goes Global, where we work in collaboration with a number of societies for a fun packed cultural evening!  The welfare team are also on hand to help anybody with any issues they have, as well as help represent students throughout the college.

With some of the newest accommodation on campus, alongside other fantastic facilities, Fylde is one of the best equipped colleges to have the time of your University life!  The bar has brilliant food and drinks offers all week long, as well as two pool tables, a games machine and a dart board, but we also have a common room, group study room and even a full sized snooker table!

If you want a college with a vibrant atmosphere, a friendly and communal feel, topped off by a hard working team of students who are there to provide you with the best years of your life, then pick Fylde College.
