Hull is a very social place to live. There are so many places to hang out or eat out that anyone will be spoiled for choice. Newland Av is great for student hangouts while town is great for shopping and nights out.

Living in Hull

As the centre of commercial life in East Yorkshire, Hull has spent the last few years regenerating it’s city centre and making it an increasingly attractive prospect for students considering the University of Hull.

As a busy cosmopolitan area of course there’s some great shopping. There are three large shopping centres near the campus; Princes Quay, Prospect Centre and St Stephens, all of which are massive. For all the rest the Newland Avenue area is only a short walk away and covers all your essential shops, bars, and a good variety of food outlets. Princes Quay is also where you’ll find the older section of the city and the Museum Quarter. Hull has a lot of historical significance as a merchant port, shipbuilding and industrial city, and the home of William Wilberforce who famously worked to see slavery abolished in the UK. He was extremely awesome so it’s definitely worth checking out places like the Maritime Museum, and the Wilberforce House Museum. If that’s not your style, you could just take a stroll along the Quay and enjoy the boats.

If you did hang out around the Quay, chances are you’d quickly stumble across The Deep. It’s a ‘submarium’ - an aquarium partially submerged in the waters of the River Humber- so the further into the aquarium you explore, the deeper you go under the river. It holds over 3,500 fish spread over several large tanks, so you could easily spend all afternoon in here trying to find Nemo.

There are three or four cinemas in the town, mostly within an easy walk of the main student hangouts, as well as a couple of theatres. Hull New Theatre hosts most of the bigger shows, while the Truck theatre is a little more quirky in its taste. For comedy and live music, keep an eye on the schedule for city hall, as it often draws big names from the circuit. The main student-friendly clubs are Piper, which plays a range of music on different nights, and Spiders for the rock fans. Finally, remember to watch out for the arrival of the Hull Fair, one of the biggest travelling fairs in Europe. Not that you’ll be able to miss it: it parks right next to the campus!

Any sport?

  • Ice Rink: This is in the Hull Arena where you can see the Ice Hockey teams play, or learn to skate yourself.
  • West Park is a big open space only a short walk from campus. As well as being the ideal spot to revise or kick a ball around it’s also the home of The Circle, the stadium where the Hull Tigers football team and the rugby team both play.
  • Athletics Clubs: There are two in Hull, as well as the Hull Speedway cycling club.

Good to know

  • Taxi: B-Line Taxis.
  • Bus and Train: The Hull Paragon Interchange is a massive transport hub in the city centre, where you can switch between local buses, trains and coaches all in the same place. Buses go to the campus from here every 10mins or so.
  • Airport: Humberside Airport does a few flights to Amsterdam and the UK. For a wider range of European destinations, you’re probably better off leaving from Robin Hood Airport near Doncaster.

St Stephens is very nice. Sports Direct, 2 Games and the biggest Tesco in Europe, what more do you need?! Princes Quay is beautiful but a lack of decent shops for me.

Hull is a cheap place to live for students. You will never be stuck for choice in the city centre, there's a multitude of places to shop, eat and drink...not to mention multiple bars and clubs.

SO cheap to get a taxi, eat out and going out. Lots of individual restaurants down newland and princess ave which are good and affordable. Buses are very frequent so it is easy to get from campus to town.

Great connections throughout the uni, shopping is sufficient and the cost of the living is very cheap compared to other major cities. Plenty of things to do!

Hull get a bad rep, but its super cheap, loads of nice restaurants popping up around town. Night life is good, student nights almost every day of the week, bus service is decent between Hull, the Uni and the Lawns accomodation

Love Hull! The public transport is so cheap and you never have to pay out too much on a night out! There's lots of great places to eat and there is a great choice of shops and shopping centres.
