Nottingham is one of the most popular student cities in the United Kingdom, largely due to its great universities and the choice of activities and things to do for students of all ages.
Whether you enjoy partying, eating, downtime, or all three, Nottingham will always give you something new to do throughout your study years.
Of course, you are coming to Nottingham to study and although there are so many other things to do, this must come first! Your university will offer a student library that is open 24/7, so if you’ve left your deadline until last minute, this is a great place to go at 4 AM. Nottingham has a central library that’s great for students to find books they can use without having to buy them.
There are a few local cafes that are great to hit the books if you want a change of scenery or just can’t stop procrastinating at home!
Nottingham has many shops and a beautiful shopping mall (Intu Victoria Centre) where you can get lost in clothes for hours. Many of the shops inside offer student incentives and discounts and the centre even offers a Student Night where you can grab freebies, enter competitions, listen to live music and join in activities, all whilst getting great discounts in your favourite shops!
Nottingham student accommodation is located around the city including these luxurious student homes: http://www.almerostudentmansions.com/properties/nottingham located in a great place to enjoy the nightlife.
There are many student bars and clubs in Nottingham meaning no matter what night you fancy a party, there will be a club to hit afterwards that will be booming with like-minded party-goers. Das Kino is a totally unique bar located in Nottingham with a cool German cinema theme.
You can hire ping pong tables for something a little different than hitting the pool tables and it even has a retro style photo booth where you can get your first snaps as a new flat or home! Pit and Pendulum is a great club with a bit of a gothic vibe, and to find the toilets make sure you haven’t had too much to drink because they are hidden behind a secret bookcase (spoiler alert!).
As well as the big brand chains that are available in most big cities, Nottingham is host to many quirky and cute cafes and restaurants for you to discover. [email protected] is a roof-top terrace that offers great student grub and if you sign up for their loyalty card, you can grab a huge 30% off your food bill!
Warsaw Diner is great for those students who love a good lie in and still want to go and grab breakfast, this American diner sells breakfast and pancakes all day every day. Turtle Bay is a fantastic hang out for students, with 2-4-1 cocktails and great food, you can spend hours in here making your way through that cocktail list!
Whatever reason you decide to move to Nottingham, there are many great places to discover in your spare time.
