Cambridge, whilst expensive in places, is the most beautiful place to go out in. I’ve had so many good nights out with friends since moving here in September. The nightlife is vibrant and MASH is an essential to any student night out!

Cambridge Student Life

Having been renowned for learning since the 13th century, Cambridge is a city that is really geared towards students. It is a vibrant, compact city, with plenty to do away from your desk. 

Cost of Living

It is expensive around here but it is a lovely location, we are close to everything

Nights Out

Cambridge is primarily a pub city, but there are a few clubs too, like Lola Lo and the Junction, which all offer different types of music. If you are at the University of Cambridge then you’ll also get used to going to “bops”, which are parties put on by the colleges and are a fundamental part of life as a student at the university!

Public Transport

Cambridge is known as the “city of cycling”! 1 in 5 journeys are made on a bike, making it a safe city to cycle around with bike parks everywhere. 

If you are looking to get out of the city, Cambridge has frequent train services to London, Ipswich, Peterborough, King’s Lynn, Birmingham and Stansted Airport. Equally, it is well connected by road and you can get great deals through coach companies that travel all around the UK. 

Eating Out

Shopping

Cambridge has superb shopping, there’s a huge range of retail areas clustered around different shopping centres. There’s the Grand Arcade, the Grafton Centre and the Beehive Centre to start you off, while Mill Road has independent shops and cafes, and international food supermarkets.

Museums & Galleries

Cambridge is brimming with museums and galleries! To name a few of the standouts, there's the Fitzwilliam Museum, Kettle’s Yard for modern art, Cambridge Museum of Technology, the Museum of Zoology, the Museum of Archeology and Anthropology and the Museum of Classical Archaeology.

Music

Cambridge Junction was opened by the legendary John Peel in 1990 and has brought in big-name musicians as well as supporting up-and-coming artists. Today this social enterprise comprises of three venues that cover music, dance, theatre, spoken word and comedy.

Theatre

Cambridge Arts Theatre is well known for its a varied programme of drama, dance, opera and pantomime. Also in Cambridge, is ‘In Situ’, a group which focuses on taking cutting-edge performance out of the theatre and into unusual spaces.

Architecture

The architecture in Cambridge city centre is amazing. There are great walking tours to learn about the history, however, we think there is no better way to view these iconic buildings than by punting down the River Cam. You can’t get any more Cambridge than that!

Cambridge is a beautiful city, with lots of places to eat and many different cuisines I’m never out of options for a new place to try. I can’t say much about nights out as I don’t drink alcohol. but according to friends, they believe there isn’t as much choice as they would like. I’m able to travel anywhere I need to as the public transport in Cambridge is good, but the traffic is horrible. Whilst the variety for things in Cambridge is good, the cost of living can be very difficult, including finding spaces for the next year can be a challenge, often bills aren’t included, or some places don’t want students. In my case, I was often turned away as I didn’t have a job, which is difficult as I am unable to get a. Job with my 30+ placement hours per week aswell as lecture days on top of this. it can also be difficult to find places that are close to thr uni and hospital area, which if I do find can be upwards of £800+ which is unaffordable for a full time student read more

Lots of bus routes cut lately and bus prices have increased (park and ride at Newmarket road has gone from £2.70 when I first started uni to £3.50 and it’s a 10 minute bus route so very expensive). Also thinking about introducing congestion charge in the city of £5 a DAY, the city will be abandoned and many shops will shut (job losses for students too). Food is great but expensive in the city . read more

Quite expensive compared to my country (in some ways), but manageable when you know where to shop. On that note: Mcdonald’s and KFC are absolutely disappointing compared to their other places I’ve been to. However, there are a lot of other places to try when eating out. For nights our, there are plenty of night clubs available, like Mash, Vinyl & Lola lo… all seem ok & Cambridge is quite a safe town too so I never felt scared walking home alone after the dark. There are also a plenty of good stores for basically anything you need or if you by any chance can’t find the thing you’re looking for, London is only under an hour away. Public transport is 50/50, buses either come or they don’t, wouldn’t count on them 100%, rather use the scooters or bicycles. They are also quite expensive too. read more

Living in Cambridge has definitely been more expensive than what I was used to back home but it’s something you adapt to pretty quickly and the jobs available to you make that more than viable. As a student I think it’s pretty hard to get bored around here when there’s so many great clubs for a night out or restaurants and shops to enjoy a good day. That topped with the amazing student deals that so many places here offer just goes to show how great living in Cambridge can be! read more

A very beautiful and history-rich city! With so many colleges around the city, there's always something new to explore. Distances are relatively short, making meeting friends and going out very easy. There are lots of restaurants, bars and clubs, both from well-established chains as well as some that are native and unique to Cambridge. You'll never miss out on shopping as there are many shops and 2 large malls. The cost of living is definitely less compared to some of the larger UK cities but it is not considered cheap due to all the aforementioned benefits; nevertheless Cambridge still is a great and affordable place to live. read more

I am not one to judge the nightlife, despite the pricing in Cambridge being dearer than what I am used to, the living wage is higher and so it isn't noticed as much. So many places to chose from to eat out (or even order in), as well as shop, the city is amazing and I will certainly miss living there. One thing that I would definitely agree with is their transport avenues. Many park and rides regularly circulating around Cambridge (reducing the amount of cars in cambridge), also available bikes to hire - many healthy alternatives than using a car. read more

Comparing to London it’s a much slower and smaller space to do things but there a lot of retail stores and access to a lot of things if needed. Night life personally for me is waaayy tooo messy! (Fights before, during and after!). There are much more local stores that nearer to student accommodations than supermarkets which are more expensive to buy things from, the nearest shopping outlet is the beehive which is like a 20/30 minute walk, so I’d recommend a weekly shop. read more

if you don't come from a wealthy family or have almost the full maintenance loan from SFE then go somewhere else to rent minimum is around 600 a month and thats a small box room in a shared house. to eat out is expensive and the prices of drinks on nights out is also expensive at the end of the day its about perspective some people think £180 a week for a room is good and some think it is expensive. you need a lot of money to be able to rent somewhere nice and afford a social life in Cambridge. parking is limited and very expensive. get a bike is my advice and a decent lock as they are regularly stolen. read more

Definitely an amazing place to live! well, as long as you don't spend every minute of every day thinking about how much money you're spending.. Nightlife is amazing and there are plenty of places to explore around, there's several clubs that have their own genre set on it, one being a metal/rock based club that is becoming quite the talk around. plenty of shops surrounding the are and there is no need for public transport or cars when it comes to town shopping because of how close everything is. read more

Nice picturesque place with some good local businesses but the general population is rude and snobby. Walking down the street can be a challenge as people do not look where they are going and will not move when there is little space on the pavement which means you are constantly trying to avoid them like obstacles but usually still end up brushing shoulders. read more

The cost of livin...

The cost of living in Cambridge is really expensive - with rents similar to London prices. As a student, the price of your accommodation will depend on how rich your college is. There aren't many places to eat out, most students just eat in their college's hall. Eating out is very expensive if you do it. There are only three clubs in Cambridge and they're all a bit boring/ cheezy, as well as being pretty expensive. Students often attend "bops" run by colleges, which are usually cheaper and more fun. Pretty much everyone cycles everywhere, although there are also plenty of buses to get around. The train station provides easy access to London, and there are also several coach routes, e.g. to Oxford. read more
