Being a student does have its perks! From discounts on food to free food and we’ve collected them all for you!



Not a fan of hand cramps that come with writing? Or you just can’t be bothered lugging your laptop to every lecture? Well we’ve got you covered, if you’re a foundation year or first-year student you’ll be eligible for a free iPad to help you with your studies! And better yet, you get to keep it once you’ve graduated!

You’ll also get a keyboard to go along with the iPad to help out with all the note-taking you’ll be doing.



Once you’ve got your iPad you’ll have immediate access to Teesside University’s Future Learning toolkit! The toolkit provides you with a collection of software that will help you throughout your studies including Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams, which will allow you to develop skills to benefit your career.


£100 credit

We know it can be tough to find the money to afford the countless textbooks you’ll need to help you with your studies. That’s why at the start of every academic year you’ll receive credit worth £100 to spend on the key course textbooks you’ll need for your exams and assignments.


The Gym

Making sure you have a life outside of studying is important to us. That’s why our state of the art gym has a membership fee of just £100.  You’ll get access to badminton and squash courts, Astroturf pitch, climbing wall and of course the gym! You’ll also be able to swim for free at the Neptune Centre.



We are dedicated to providing you with the best possible student experience, that’s why you’ll be able to attend a wide variety of events across campus. From careers fairs to guest speakers we’ve got everything you could need for progressing your career and expanding your skillset.


Student’s services

You’ll have access to an array of services that will help you achieve the very best during your time here. Whether that’s help with essay planning at the library, or you need someone from Student Futures to fine-tune your CV. You’ll have everything you need to be a success here at Teesside.


Unidays/Student Beans

 While studying at Teesside you can take full advantage of services such as UNiDAYS and Student Beans. If you’re interested in fashion, food, drink, travel, entertainment, health, beauty – you name it, they’ve got it!

And who can say no to a free Greggs Sausage Roll or a free McDonalds Mayo Chicken!


Rail Card

 Discounted train travel will be available to you when you become a student. This is ideal for those who are moving away for university. You can expect to get 1/3 off on all passenger rail services within the UK!


Spotify/Apple Music/Amazon Prime

 When you’ve been stuck in the library studying all day you’ll no doubt want to go home to relax and unwind. Luckily, as a student, you’ll get discounts on all sorts of services like Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Prime. So you can work hard knowing you’ll have a catalogue of movies and countless albums to go home too.



Free stuff, meet new people, learn about the university, free stuff, food, drink, activities, oh and did we mention free stuff?

Businesses and partners from all over Teesside will be on campus during Freshers week giving away free food, t-shirts and discounts. Whether it’s a free parmo from Manjaros, a free t-shirt or some discounts for Pizza Hut, Freshers is a treasure trove of free stuff and discounts.
