Gloucester Student Life

Students enjoy living in the beautiful city of Gloucester, which is close enough to the Cotswolds to feel like you’re almost in the country, but with no shortage of things to do on days off. There is something for everyone, whether that’s visiting King Edward II’s tomb or experiencing one of the 45 festivals that Gloucester hosts!

Cost of Living

Bit rough around the edges but a great city for students. Low cost living with an aldi or lidl for every 100 residents.

Gloucester is on the national rail and National Express coach network which opens up travel to the rest of the UK. Don’t forget to get student discount cards for your travel!

Shopping

Located by a historical dock area is Gloucester Quays, a retail outlet mall for brands such as All Saints, Molton Brown, Levi’s, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas and Nike. In the summer, you can also dine or take in a pint by the waterside.

Days Out

Crazy Golf

Visit Mr Mulligan's in nearby Cheltenham for a 36 hole challenge with your friends on your day off. There are three themed routes to mix things up, but you can also play ping pong, pool, electro darts and shuffleboard.  Who knew crazy golf can be so competitive?!

Go Karting

You can enjoy a whole day out at JDR Karting and Activity Centre where they have go karting, laser tag, axe throwing and segwaying! You can visit there with your mates during the weekend or convince your family to go whilst they’re visiting.

Gloucester Cathedral

If you enjoy Harry Potter and history, the Gloucester Cathedral will be right up your street. Some bits of Harry Potter were filmed there and you will also find King Edward II’s tomb, which is one of only a few royal tombs to be found outside London. Plan a visit to appreciate the rich history of the cathedral!
