Norwich Student Life
Students rate their experience of the city highly, due to its shops, nightlife and the small-town-community-feel. Norwich crams a lot of activity into a very manageable space, while still keeping the relaxed attitude you’d expect from a county that is half seaside.
Cost of Living
Norwich is such great value for money and is so clean! There are student deals on most places so eating out is cheap. There are so many bars and pubs and a few clubs that nights out are great fun and affordable!

can't really comment on nights out as i haven't really wanted to go on any, lots of pubs and clubs either way, all the clubs are on one road so easy to stay away from them or find them all - whatever floats your boat! unexpected the large amount of homeless people, mostly found near the market square so i tend to avoid the market for sake of being stopped and asked for change nice shops and the lanes are very nice for walking around castle, theatre royal, biddys tea rooms, vue cinema come recommended! read more
