A good town but very big. Very large student population with many places accepting student discounts and offering student nights. A lot of shopping opportunities and good restaurants.

It's not too bad…

As a whole it’s not too bad but if u like going out having fun with ur mates then Dundee isn’t really for you. There are only around 3 clubs in Dundee and they’re nothing compared to clubs in Glasgow or Edinburgh.

Public Transport

Everywhere is reachable by foot or bike in Dundee, there is also a frequent bus service. Dundee is in an ideal location for exploring Scotland with scenery, skiing, mountain climbing and sailing within an easy reach by road and rail. There are also good rail connections to main UK cities, with Edinburgh just over an hour away and Manchester 5 hours away. Dundee airport is close to the city centre and with flights direct to London Stanstead. Other Scottish airports make it easy and affordable to reach the main cities in the UK and Europe. 
 

Eating Out

Shopping

Dundee’s city centre is largely pedestrianised, making it easy to stroll around and pop into your favourite shops. Overgate and Wellgate Shopping Centres are in the heart of the city and house all your high street favourites. The city also has great independent shops too, such as Groucho’s Record Shop and Spex Pistols which doubles up as a glasses shop and intimate gig venue!

Most accomodation...

Most accomodation places are affordable and i have been happy paying my rent amount 3/4 years I've been staying here. There are plenty of restaurants and takeaway spots throughout Dundee as well as grocery shops scattered throughout the city. The main public transport around the city is buses and taxis which is sufficient seeing as Dundee is a relatively small city. It has a train station that can be used to travel to and from Dundee which is very useful. read more

Dundee is a very safe place i felt at least till this far. Nightlife is not great but is'nt dull even. It has so many places to chill out and eating out has so many options here. I am yet to try many things yet. Well, cost of living here is very reasonable. I am not a shopping person soi am not sure how to tell this but overgate and wellgate here are like shopping hub. And public transport is such a bliss here. Like if your age is below 22 (not just young at heart :P) then it's free for you guys, go out, enjoy your life. Very convenient travelling. read more

Dundee is a great...

Dundee is a great student city, large enough to feel free from eternal study and burnout and to enjoy oneself with variety but not so far as to feel daunting. The nightlife and day life are fantastic with the clubs, Union and various shops/restaurant/activities around the city. The buses are highly unreliable, although this is only a real issue travelling outside of DD1 or to the hospital. As a medical student I rely on the buses daily so this is a sticking point for me, but the issue is manageable and the benefits of the city far outweigh it. read more

With the YoungScot card, you are free to travel on the bus anywhere if you are under 21. This is a great bonus. Dundee, in itself, has not got an awful lot to do, but it's a small, cute, lively and SUNNY town. This is going to become your second home, and you start getting to know almost everyone around. A very student-friendly place, with affordable places to eat and almost all shops provide student discounts. It is also just an hour or two away from beautiful locations like Arbroath, St Andrews, Edinburgh for a day trip. read more

Dundee is really a homely city as it’s quiet, small enough for you to know everyone and big enough for you to explore. I’m not really a nights out person but the days I do go out with friends, we always find cheap or student discounted meals and prices which are awesome. I love that transportation is freeee!!!! (Well until you turn 21) but still this was mind blowing for me. The free community fridge was also very helpful and I couldn’t even begin to describe my gratitude for Dundee’s warm welcome. read more

There is a wide r...

There is a wide range of places to eat and things are relatively cheap-ish. Nights out are good, tbh most people tend to go to the same two nightclubs, but there are plenty of other pubs and nightclubs. There are some really pretty places, like along the riverfront, Law Hill and Magdalen green. Broughty Ferry Beach is only a few minutes away by train too. Most places are walkable, or there is free bus travel, and the train station is situated in the city centre. There is also an airport, but it is pretty small so it might be slightly more of a hassle for international students to travel to and from. Obviously, because Dundee is a smaller city, there are not an abundant amount of shopping centres, but most accessible brands are there and you have got pretty much everything you would need. Overall, Dundee is a cool and safe city to live and study in :) read more

Dundee is great, its a city but not too big. Generally everything you need is within walking distance. Depending on where you live will affect how close you are to the city centre. Though many accommodations are close to both the university and town meaning it is only a short walk to both. There are many shops catering to many needs and there are multiple places to eat in or take out. There are multiple buses and bus stops all over the city and they are running regularly. Overall it is a great place to live as a student or long time resident. read more

Cost of living can range but you can get very cheap flats. Cafes etc in Dundee are expensive even for sandwiches places can charge like £4. Dundee is very big for nights out. There are 2 shopping centres and then there's kingsway and a tkmaxx etc. There's bus links and trains. read more

As a city, it's pretty good... a bit underrated I'd say. The shops are decent but not amazing. Food places are good and nights out are pretty decent. read more

Dundee is very ch...

Dundee is very cheap but 'you get what you pay for' ;) The city is dead and has nothing to offer. Low-quality night clubs where you can see people fighting all the time. Bars with just the cheapest beer and vodka. No music scene beside a rock in pubs and mainstream pop music in discotheques. The last real club has been closed a few months ago. The city during the weekend at night looks like a ghost town. Dundee is boring and depressing especially with all those homeless people on the streets. It's a city for old people, not students. Also, everything is far away. Jumping to Edinburgh or Glasgow for a night out is limited to a few night busses. Oh, and it's always very windy and cold here all year. Wind very often spoil even the most sunny summer day read more

As a whole it’s not too bad but if u like going out having fun with ur mates then Dundee isn’t really for you. There are only around 3 clubs in Dundee and they’re nothing compared to clubs in Glasgow or Edinburgh. read more

Dundee, you reall...

Dundee, you really must avoid at all costs. The massive amount of money spent to regenerate this city would’ve been better spent on our failing public services. This town has a massive amount of dimwits every four years or so that come here to further their so called education , one would argue that the majority of them would’ve been fortunate to pass the11 plus. Our city fathers believe that Dundee will indeed be reborn with the likes of the new Victoria and Albert Museum. Bars and Restaurants alike to name but a few are tired , smelly and lack any quality of service , this gets no better as you head east to the so called posh suburb of Broughty Ferrty. Bars a plenty of which are at the very most average. Again most are manned by young immature staff with no formal training , the dimwits as previously mentioned , more interested in talking to pals abou whatthey got upto on Saturday night than paying any attention to the clientele. Although Broughty Ferry would like to believe read more

The cost of livin...

The cost of living in Dundee is incredibly cheap. The halls you stay in aren't that cheap sadly and they're not catered however eating out and about is cheap, easy and convenient. The nights out are genuinely out of this world - the union is about 5 seconds away from the University halls and has 5 floors: Two bars, a games room, a nightclub and floor 5 (Which plays the best cheesiest music in all of Dundee!) Shopping is good although leaves a little to be desired compared to places such as Glasgow. However, I've never struggled to find anything I need, the choice is just is a little limited. The overgate shopping centre will generally satisfy all of your needs. Public transport is also good, train station in the centre of town, good frequent buses etc. Dundee has so much more to do in it that I ever expected and I've been pleasantly surprised at how nice it is. The West End is completely designed around students with hundreds of cheap bars, pubs, restaurants, shops, cafes, etc!10/10 read more

Great small town, quite cheap, one of the best for night-life, yet provides excellent academic opportunities. One negative aspect is perhaps the limited job market if you're looking to work, though there are opening if you're patient. read more

Such a great city! Especially for people moving from Notthern Ireland as its great to be so far away from home for independence and living on your own, but you can get home via megabus and stenaline for £49 return lol! It's such a lively city at night, and during the day it had plenty to do! It truly is my second home :-) read more
