Decent cost of living and places to eat out although not that much variety. Night life could have a little more pubs/bars/clubs although there's a few. Shopping is okay, there's Drake Circus centre for what you may need. Public transport such as trains or buses run on time however there's no Uber and taxis are hard to come by! (And pricy). Nice seaside and many things to do around the city in the summer.

Plymouth Student Life

There’s a big student population in Plymouth and it has plenty on offer from outdoor adventures and culture to restaurants and nights out. It’s a big enough city to have lots going on and all the amenities you would want but small enough to make it a friendly and accessible place to study and live. 

Cost of Living

Great location near some amazing beaches and good cost of living.

Friendly city with large student culture, very few clubs but a large amount of pubs. Pubs on the barbican are lovely, but very expensive.

Public Transport

Plymouth is incredibly easy to get everywhere by foot from both university campuses. Despite being located far South West of England the city has good connections to the rest of the UK by road and rail, as well as being a short train ride from Exeter Airport. If you have time on your hands and want to save some money be sure to checkout Stagecoach and Mega Bus for great deals on coach trips to major UK cities.

Shopping

You will find all the high street favourites at Drake Circus, Plymouth’s most popular shopping destination. Make sure to check out their student nights, where you can take advantage of student discounts, live music and giveaways. If you are looking for something a bit more alternative head to Ebrington Street, which is known as the cultural and coffee quarter of Plymouth and is super popular with students. You can find independent boutiques, vintage stores as well as cool bars, cafes and restaurants.

The Great Outdoors

Just north of Plymouth is Dartmoor National Park a vast wild open moorland, with forests, rivers, wetlands and tors to explore and their famous wild ponies roam. It is a stunning area to go for either a day’s hike or you can make it into more of an adventure by camping out.

Devon and Cornwall Beaches

Beach lovers are spoilt for choice in Plymouth! Nearby there’s Bovisand, Jennycliff and Wembury beach. If you are happy to travel a bit further afield, then you have the pick of the bunch across Devon and Cornwall, which boast some of the best beaches in the country.

The Hoe

Closer to the city is The Hoe, which is an open green space that has a spectacular backdrop of Plymouth Sound, one of the greatest natural harbours in the world. On a sunny day, it’s a popular spot for students to take a picnic, have a bbq, go for a walk or swim and enjoy a well-earned break from the books.

Plymouth is a lovely place to live, situated right by the sea which is perfect on sunny days. The transport in the city centre is perfect for wherever you need to get to. There are loads of bus stops on the royal parade and is a 10 minute walk to the railway station from the centre. The city centre has everything you will need. Plymouth is a good option when it comes to the cost of living because it doesn’t effect us as much as it would in London etc. read more

I've found Plymouth to be good in terms of cost of living; my rent has been low compared to other cities and cost of food/groceries seems okay. Plymouth has an amazing food scene with loads of independent restaurants with every cuisine you could want! Nightlife is good, and shopping is great too! The waterfront is the best place to be in the summer and there's loads of beaches nearby, as well as Dartmoor! read more

Public transport into and out of the city is generally very good. Especially as you have to go elsewhere to do most things. Nights out must be had on the right days but can be very fun and thanks to the uni night patrol are generally not that unsafe. It is however very cheap to live relative to the rest of the country and the beautiful Hoe and Barbican are always there. read more

I live in private student halls that are actually cheaper than the university halls by £30 per week which helps. The uni is so close to the mall and the train station and night life. No need for travel but if you go to Marion the buses are easy to access and I believe certain ones are free for mark on students. read more

Most student accommodation is expensive but there are flats that are quit cheap. There are lots of places to eat and get food delivered from, however only a few places are open late. There are lots of pubs and clubs around but it seems like most pubs shut at 11pm. There are lots of shops around the Drake Circus, however there aren't many big shops around the city centre. The only public transport I have used is getting a train from Plymouth to Essex and back but they are quite nice trains. There are lots of buses that drive around. There aren't many places to park unfortunately. read more

Love living in Plymouth. Amazing night life that can actually cater to different ages too, if you fancy something more upbeat there's clubs but also a really nice atmosphere on the Barbican in the summer for a few cocktails in the sun. Public transport within the city is mostly busses but the train station is centrally in the city making commuting further outside of the city nice and easy. Theres lots of lovely independent restaurants as well as chain restaurants. Many of which provide excellent food. The main shopping centre has some good shops however Plymouth does lack some more modern stores. There's nothing better than sitting up on the hoe in the summer with your friends and a bbq! read more

Plymouth is a good place to live. Cheap cost of living, offers an excellent restaurant and nightlife scene, plenty of options in terms of shopping (essentials, luxury items, etc). The public transport is okay: I have some issues with how quickly the public transport arrives at their allocated stops, but I only ever used one bus (Gold to Torquay/Gold to Plymouth) in Plymouth, and my score is only based on one experience, so I can't give more of a comment than that. read more

Student living is...

Student living is quite reasonable in Plymouth and if you search around you can find some wonderful properties for all budgets. The town is great, not too big but there’s many clubs, bars, restaurants and cafes for all audiences. As well as a decent shopping mall and retail parks. Nightlife is great for students and some cheap places. Many buses around and a coach station and train station in the city centre. Don’t forget about the ferry which is always overlooked, but a perfect and very cheap way to travel from one side of Plymouth to the other and to Cornwall too!! I love Plymouth. So great for students. read more

Great student cit...

Great student city because the uni is located in city center and so are most of the accommodation and shops. Aldi (2) and Lidl (1) all within walking distance of city center. Drakes Circus is a bit small IMO. You can walk virtually anywhere you need to go so you save so much money for not having to take public transport. If you do need to leave city center (not many interesting things, mostly residential) the buses are really expensive and sometimes have ridiculous delays (I've seen one at 45 mins...). I've bought a return ticket that was 5 something pounds - the journey was like 20-30 minutes one way... I don't go clubbing but from friends they seem to really enjoy themselves and in my opinion there's a lot of clubs for a small city (town I might even say). A range of restaurants (cuisine, price) but also a lot of takeaways and kebab shops. Lots of fish and chip shops near the Barbican that all taste so good! read more

Not that expensive, but for a city the amount of shops is a bit poor. The buses are frequent and the train station is central. read more

Nice city! short walk to the seaside/aquarium/barbican, and Drake circus (main shopping centre) is right next to the uni. Word of warning: bring a raincoat. It will rain nearly every day, most days pretty light but too windy for an umbrella, and all to frequently a downpour like you've never seen. read more

North Hill is the best place if you're a student to go if you're on a night out, it's cheap and clubs/bars are very close together. Drake circus has most good stores that you might want to shop in. Plenty of good and cheap places to eat, caffeine club is a 24hr cafe and does food for a good price. read more
