Read Uxbridge Reviews
The town of Uxbridge is well-situated, on the metropolitan underground line which passes through London Liverpool Street. The campus in not a far distance from the centre of Uxbridge, which boasts a reasonable shopping centre and selection of shops and eateries. I am not well-versed in the nightlife. However as with living anywhere in London the the cost of living is quite high, potentially meaning that you will need to consider more carefully how you live to reduce costs.
Uxbridge was okay; I didn't go out much then to be honest. But i liked the town centre which was where the train station and shops were. I am from Nigeria and could get african food there. Basically, i could get anything needed. I don't go clubbing so I can't really speak to the night life. The cost of living was fair.
Uxbridge does not have many places to go out, but it really depends whether you like pubs/bars or clubbing. Clubbing it's not good apart from student night (Wednesday). But there are a lot of pubs so a pub crawl is quite often a fun alternative. You can get the tube into central London, takes about an hour and a half to get to anywhere that's good for clubbing but just consider this time to "subtly" pre drink on the tube. But for shopping and living Uxbridge provides all you need.
