So last night was a big one. You treated yourself to one too many trebles and now your body is paying for it. You’re woken up early the next morning and impulsively decide to check your timetable. You have a 9am. Wait… What? You were sure you didn’t have a lecture until 12… The horror sinks in, as does your banging headache. But no worries, we’ve got you sorted. You’ll be able to sleep off that hangover in no time, without even having to leave campus.
1) The SU
The students union is the classic choice for any Newcastle student that is in need of a place to nurse themselves back to health after a heavy night on the toon. Offering multiple rooms with huge, comfy sofas, that prove to be very satisfying to lounge on, you can see why most students flock here. NUSU Central also offers a chicken shop. What more can I say. And if all else fails you can always head down to Mens Bar and drink until your hangover (and dignity) is far behind you.
“Of course you can try and not drink so much, but that would be boring”
2) Patch of grass outside the Northern Stage
This hangover spot only really works if the weather is actually decent which, let’s face it, does not happen very often in Newcastle. So, perhaps save this spot for the summer term, when you can enjoy a nice relaxing breeze as you lay down on the soft grass. Ignore the judging glances of your fellow students as they stroll past you unconscious on the grass, the smell of alcohol still lingering from last night. This is you in all your glory. Embrace it.
3) Campus Coffee
Campus Coffee provides the perfect compilation of food, coffee and seats to sleep in, basically all you need to tend to the after effects of last night. Only problem with hanging here is that it’s quite possible you will come across people you don’t want to see. In which case I can’t help you, you’re just going to have to grin and bear it and pray they don’t tell everyone how much of a state your life is.
4) The Old Library
The Old Library Building - probably one of the best looking buildings on campus- is actually quiet and of fine architectural design. Although you won’t notice this because you’ll just be looking for somewhere to rest your head for a few hours, you hungover mess.
There’s nothing like the droning voice of your lecturer to send you straight off to sleep. But isn’t it important to actually listen in my lecture, you may be thinking, you know, to help you with that whole degree thing? But thanks to a handy little invention called Blackboard you don’t need to worry about that anymore, as you can easily catch up on your lectures there. So take a nice, relaxing nap in your lectures and feel refreshed for the rest of the day, and for tonight when you can go out and party all over again.
There you have it. Of course you could try and not drink so much that you need to pass out on campus in front of everyone, but that would be boring. Get sleeping folks.
