Huddersfield is a great town for someone who wants to experience city life on a small, relaxed scales Huddersfield has everything you need within a 15 minute walk. The night life could be better, but there’s lots of shops and food places to explore.

Nights Out

Huddersfield is known for the number of bars it has, as well as how close they are to the university. The Queensgate area, just opposite campus, is the hub for this so you won’t be stuck for nightlife. Popular student hotspots for clubbing include Camel Club and Maverick’s 80s Lounge, but there’s easily enough in the area to suit most tastes. If you fancy heading to a gig The Parish and Vinyl Tap are two out of a number of intimate and independent live music venues in the town.

Public Transport

Everything is close by and in walking distance, so you’ll only really need to use the buses if you end up living a long way outside of the main campus, which a few of the residential halls are. If this is the case, there’s a cheap bus pass you can buy which brings your fare down to just £1 a trip. Huddersfield train station is very close to the university with regular trains to the nearest big cities such as Leeds and Manchester.

Eating Out

Shopping

Huddersfield has lovely arcades and markets for those who enjoy a more unique shopping experience. Queensgate Indoor Market, Byram Arcade and the Open Market are the best places to pick up a variety of goods from independent sellers whether its weekly veggies or vintage clothes. For music, your new favourite hangout will be Vinyl Tap which is renowned for its selection of old and new records. High-street shopping is also catered for with Kingsgate Centre and Piazza shopping centres housing all your favourite brands.

Castle Hill

When you are feeling like you need to stretch your legs head to Castle Hill, an ancient monument which dates back 4,000 years. Situated just outside the town, it’s a 45-minute walk up the hill, where you will be rewarded with fantastic views as far as the eye can see.

Manchester and Leeds

Needing to see the big city lights? Well, you only have to travel 20-minutes by train to Leeds or 40-mins to Manchester. Both cities are famous for cultural attractions, shopping, food and legendary nightlife.

For nights out clubs and places to go have become limited recently after closures of clubs recently.

Although we have a shopping centre and shops around the town centre, again it’s just standard shops , nowhere I could really recommend to go in Huddersfield town read more

Small town, but great for student nights as all sports clubs go out on Wednesdays following their own route and end up in the last two clubs together. So great for social life and getting to know new people. Cost of living is good compared to cities like Leeds and Manchester etc. read more

Great places to eat out, plenty of options. I’ve never been our clubbing so I haven’t got much experience with that, plenty of your high street shops to treat yourself.

My favourite places to go in Huddersfield was: the public library (fully recommended getting a card there - it has Libby, a really cool library app), Waterstones, New Look, Primark, H & M, Spoons, and Nando's. There's also a Heavenly Desserts. It's a lovely town and has plenty of food shops and the train station is a 15 minute walk from the university. Taxi's are cheap and nights out have plenty of club options. There is a cinema that takes a 20 minute walk or a 10 minute drive. It has everything you need along with parks and incredible walks. read more

With is being a smallish town centre there rant loads of places to go n a night out but the places we have are great, you get to know the staff and bouncers who work especially student nights with makes you feel safe while on a night out. There are big chain restaurants such as spoons and revs but they also have lots of great independent cafes and places to eat that are great. I find the transport links to places like leeds, manchester, and halifax very good and reasonably priced. Finally student housing in huddersfield is some of the cheapest and nicest I've seen, very nice student houses, halls and studios all very well priced. read more

As Huddersfield is only a town it doesn't offer the vast range of shops and clubs which may be found else where in the big cities. However due to its location the drinks and living costs are cheap , in other words you get more for your money. The night life despite being more limited Is good and always packed. There I'd a small shopping centre with high street shops along with a range of other big brands and also some local business and markets. Transport links are excellent with connections by bus or train being easily found to most destinations. read more
