Nights out are quality short walks no need for taxis with cheap drinks and cheap takeaways all over the place loads of options for clubs or pub all with cheap drinks on student nights. Shopping is simple short walk to a supermarket or a walk into town if your not looking for food. Loads of tourist attractions in york the dungeon and minster are pretty cool and there are loads of other thing close by to do as well. The value for money is really good as well once you get to know where to shop as york can be expensive if you don’t know what you are doing or where to go but it only takes afew days to learn as it is relatively small but has so much to offer.

York is a lovely place, slightly slower pace of life than a big city. Lots of good beer and coffee, but not the most going on here.

Really nice city, with lots of places to eat and drink. The city itself is of great historic interest.

nights out are poor if you like big clubs but easy to get to leeds. bars are good, especially stone roses. some cheap places to drink and eat if u look hard but touristy places are expensive.

York is a beautiful city here in the north with lots of shops, access to transport and clubs. There is a club for almost everybody and town is equidistant from both UoY ans YSJ

Beautiful city in the great north and lovely, friendly people. When I first came to york I was met with beautiful scenery and architecture in the capital of the north! It not only is a wonderful city but is rich in history and every street has a story to tell or a friend to be made.

Absolutely gorgeous city, so in love with the atmosphere here. It’s a bit on the expensive side overall, but good student deals can be found everywhere. So many day activities (awesome museums), really good bars and Leeds/Newcastle are just on your doorstep.

York has a beautiful town, full of all the shops you could want. If there are some missing for you, there is the designer outlet 2-3 miles from town and Leeds just a 20 minutes train away. There are 2 cinemas in the town centre. You can take a ghost tour and visit the many pubs. The night life is ok, probably not the best but it’s enough for a student. Although it’s not a ‘dress-up’ kind of night life. The value for money is good considering it’s a lovely town, less expensive than the south although more expensive than other areas in Yorkshire. The accommodation is fairly pricey... but you save money on travel since everywhere is accessible by walking or by bike. But there is an excellent bus service that is frequent with friendly bus drivers which is rather novel.

The university isn’t in the centre of town so nights out aren’t on you’re doorstep but there is the cheapest bus ever which comes every 10 minutes. There are loads of little shops you chose from including an Aldi which isn’t dead cheap and great for a student budget. The town hasn’t great clothes shopping as well as there being a designer shopping outlet.

Good variety of clubs and bars to choose from. There is always student events, prices are cheap and the atmosphere is friendly. Plenty of shops and restaurants to enjoy a good day out. York has many unique tourist attractions including the art gallery, train museum and castle. YSJ accommodation is very close to the city center. I can’t fault it.

Good night out, friendly place. Would recommend anyone coming here as a student. Student accommodation isn’t too bad though rather expensive. Houses in the area are fairly similar to students as in the rest of the country.

York is the best student city without a doubt. Its the perfect size and we have a few clubs and loads of pubs. Its also a really cute city and really safe. Theres touristy things to do when your parents visit and fun things to do with ur pals. Best decision ive ever made was going to uni of york. Unis close enough to town you can walk or theres a bus as well also pretty cheap compared to down south

York is a pretty fantastic town to be honest, the two campuses are a short bus journey away from the town and the buses run very regularly, there is a nice mixture of your usual chain shops and cute quirky independent shops, there are always people out on a night and the drinks are really cheap.

Campus is only a twenty minute walk or a cheap, ten minute bus journey from town. Both campuses are lovely, and York city is historical and beautiful. There are plenty of shops as well as a large network of buses going to surrounding cities, the coast and York’s retail outlets. Most places offer student discounts, including the museums! Town is also filled with cute cafes and restaurants, as well as a pub for every day of the year. The night life is much better than you may think, there are some great, cheap bars and plenty of clubs.
