Close to campus, the vibrant Newland Avenue and Princes Avenue residential area is popular with students and offers an eclectic selection of bars, coffee shops, eateries and boutiques. Hull’s lively city centre also offers a broad range of shops, restaurants, cafés, bars, theatres and clubs, as well as the picturesque marina.
Hull was the UK City of Culture for 2017 and is a true destination city. Its annual Freedom Festival is a premier art, music and entertainment event, while trendy Humber Street in the city’s Old Town is a creative and cultural hub, filled with galleries, live music venues, markets, bars and eateries.
Connected to country and coast
The city is only a short train journey to bigger cities: Leeds (1 hour), Manchester (2 hours) and London (2 hours 40mins), and an hour from the stunning coastline and the beautiful seaside town of Scarborough.
