I love it here! I’m originally from Stoke but moved away when I was 2 years old. I returned for university. This city is full of amazing places to go!

Stoke-on-Trent Student Life

Situated about halfway between Birmingham and Manchester, Stoke is a modern place that still has a lot of older buildings from its days in the pottery trade, which gives it character. It’s a good size for a town, big enough to hold all the facilities that a growing student needs. 

Cost of Living

Accommodation

Student accommodation costs in Stoke-on-Trent range from £80 - £157 per week; the average is £116 per week. 

Compare the average elsewhere: Wolverhampton: £127/week, Worcester: £142/week, Birmingham: £173/week.

(prices are for all purpose-built student accommodation (both private and university-owned) over the last 12 months, as listed on StudentCrowd)

The average price for:

A cheap meal at a restaurant: £11
A pint of beer: £3
A regular takeout coffee: £2.79
1L of milk: £0.96
A loaf of white bread: £1.06

Prices are about 2% lower than equivalent costs in Worcester and about 3% lower than Birmingham.

Nights Out

There’s a decent nightlife, although many students will taxi the short distance over to Hanley which has a few more clubs aimed at students. For the culture vultures, there are several theatres to pick from, the biggest being the Regent Theatre and the Victoria Concert Hall is just down the road. There’s an Odeon at Festival Park or you can try the independent art-house Stoke-On-Trent Film Theatre for subtitled, classic and post-release movies.

Public Transport

The Stoke-On-Trent campus has two sites which are just a few minutes walk apart from each other. To get around Stoke it’s easy by bus which links the city centre to the wider area. To get out of the city there is a good rail network, Manchester is just a 35-minute journey, Birmingham is 45-minutes and London 90-minutes.

Days Out

Canals

Nothing says “I’ve just received my student loan” like a party on a boat. The Trent and Mersey canal system runs through Stoke and is over 90 miles long. There are often day trips you can do, and some companies will let you rent out a boat for the day, although you might have to pull in an adult guarantor to help convince them you won’t crash it.

 

Image Credit

National Cycle Network

There are nearly 80 miles of off-road cycle paths that run through Stoke to explore. We can’t think of a better way to clear your head after a hard week of studying!

 

Image Credit

Alton Towers

It’s ten miles away. You could hike that if you had to. You won’t though, because there’s a bus that goes from Stoke Rail Station.

 

Image Credit

Trentham Estate

Trentham Estate is a stately home and beautiful gardens, where you can find peace and quiet. There are trails and barefoot walks as well as a Monkey Forest. Yes, that’s right, a forest full of actual monkeys. They just wander around and are used to people so they’ll come pretty close.

Not the best city for night outs. Has one decent club in town, others are just not it. Most people go to Manchester to do big proper shopping but stoke has a few small decent shops. Public transport isn’t the best in terms of promptness and you can be in the cold bus stop for a while sometimes. read more

Again, like my last review, I haven't really done much. I don't go on nights out, or eat out, or even catch the bus, since everything I need is 10 to 15 minutes from where I live. The Tesco's I go and resupply at is decent, got everything I need there, my only criticism is the self checkout getting annoyed that I have my own bag, but technology, it'll do whatever. read more

In terms of place to live Stoke-on-Trent is one of the cheapest cities out there as the cost of living is far cheaper than say London. If you're a student you're most likely be using the on sites nightclub rather than going out into to Hanley as it will be more safer, however a range of clubs are available nearby. As university student the range public transport on offer is huge as a regular bus service serves the campus as well as having a train station right on its doorstep for those who are commuting. You won't get lost as the both sides of the stoke campus are right next to train station. read more

The location that this is based in it is quite near the stoke on-Trent town center where they are lots of different brands and shops to choose from and I say that it would take 10 min to get there especially the nearby shops like Tesco.

Tons of places to go in Hanley during the weekend, The Hive at Intu Potteries is amazing for eating out and the cinema is right next to the restaurants. The Hanley park is very huge and relaxing to walk through. Except there are tons of geese and I’m scared of walking around them, but they’ve never attacked so far. read more

Stoke on trent is a interesting...

Stoke on trent is a interesting place to live.There some many places to explore from parks to the shopping center. Hanley is mainly outdoor shopping center where you can find anything you need for a reasonable price. I haven't been out in the night to experience "nights out" but there is a choice of two cinemas, a bowling alley and close by is alton towers. The public transport isn't very good as the buses are ether very full and busy or the bus drivers are a bit rude. (personal experience). Not to mention the high price for usage. I walk everywhere, better scenery, especially in the mornings. read more

I have nothing to complain about apart from how bad the nights out are here it’s really worth drinking at home in student accommodation because student union is bad and so is hanley. Public transport I only use trains and they are usually late (stoke-manchester). Cost of living seems decent especially in student accommodation. read more

The town is not very big which is very good because less traffic, less crimes, and very quite. The town has anything you need from many corner shops to a big mall such as intu Potteries. You can find anything here and there’s lots of activities to do. read more

Great place, generally nice chatty people, an entertaining and unique accent.. Still a bit of a s**thole. Some locals are quite chavy and a bit gobby which really brings the atmosphere down, especially with their lowered cars and stupid revving engines at 3am. read more
