Are you thinking of going to University in Huddersfield? Here are some of the best things about student life living in Huddersfield.

Night life

Huddersfield night life is appealing to drinkers and non-drinkers. Hud Crawl is the biggest Fresher’s Week event in town, where students take on bars and clubs. Carousel Huddersfield combines street food, cocktails and arcade games. Five Bar is home to the best house and DnB music in town, with an outdoor courtyard and live DJ. Parish is the perfect place if you’re wanting a more indie / alternative scene with live music, craft beers and huge social spaces for late night antics.

In addition to the student friendly crowd night life in Huddersfield brings, there is also Odeon Cinema and Lawrence Batley Theatre that host late night box office films and live performances for you to sit back and enjoy with friends. FYI: getting a tango ice blast at the cinema is a must.

Brunch spots

Whether it’s a catch up with friends or a solo coffee date, brunch in Huddersfield never goes a miss! Northern Tea House, Arcade Food and Coffee and The Venue are some notable mentions, all serving classic brunch items and American diner favourites. Also, students at University love to eat good, in Huddersfield you’re definitely not short of food that will tantalise your taste buds!

International student community

Huddersfield is a vibrant town in northern England, home to a large international student community. Huddersfield’s Students Union have many societies where students can meet and embrace their national identity and culture.
