In the city centre there is plenty on offer for students. The £200 million St Stephen’s development in the heart of city is a shopper’s dream filled with all the most popular high-street shops. Savile Street is where the designer names can be found and in the Hepworth’s Arcade more eclectic tastes are catered for. Students can wander around the Old Town and visit its relaxed cafes, traditional pubs and award winning Museums Quarter. For night time entertainment students can party at a variety of different clubs, watch a play at the acclaimed Hull Truck Theatre or visit one of the four cinema complexes.

Newland Avenue and Princes Avenue form the heart of a thriving bohemian quarter with plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and other amenities.

The University also has a campus in the seaside town of Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast. The campus itself is located on a hill overlooking the South Bay, the castle and the harbour, with the North York Moors in the distance. The clean, sandy beaches and the busy Brunswick shopping centre are only minutes apart and are linked by the famous funicular cliff lifts. Scarborough has all the high street names along with many independent stores that give the town a unique feel. The town has many bars, pubs and clubs for evening entertainment and there is a lively local music scene. Alternatively students can attend a show at the Stephen Jones Theatre, the Futurist Theatre or the Spa Complex (which also has its own orchestra). Several festivals run throughout the year in Scarborough. For those seeking a little more action, students can learn a new water sport, from sea canoeing to windsurfing.

Both Hull and Scarborough are blessed to be surrounded by beautiful English countryside that can be easily accessed. East Riding of Yorkshire has some of the Britain’s most striking scenery, with open plains, rugged coastlines and rolling hills.
