Choosing the right university is no longer just about picking the right course for your future career aspirations, it’s also about the nightlife! So, we thought we’d guide you through some of the top student nights in the cities with the highest-ranking universities (with a little help from findings from Which? Guide).
Notable places include Tiger Tiger (located next to the Gate) on Monday’s with fancy dress events galore and Digital nightclub, situated next to the International Centre Of Life. This club is considered as being one of the best nightclubs in Geordie land that charges an 80p entry fee on a Monday with £1 drinks.
Popular student haunts include Fifth Avenue, a club offering different events every night of the week – with cheap drinks and shots to boot (think 90p Jagerbombs) along with 42nd Street, a predominately indie club that also offers ridiculously cheap drink prices.
One of the must-do student nights occurs on a Wednesday night at Medication in Nation (the place where Cream was born). Each week involves a different fancy dress theme, and each room inside the super club plays different music, with the ‘cheese’ room being the most popular!
Trash Mondays, held at Coalition, is considered a Monday night institution in Brighton. The £1 drinks offers also mean you should be going home with some change in your pocket at the end of the night.
Mint club is a popular destination for students on a Monday with some of Leeds best DJ’s playing a mix of House, Tech, Garage and Hip Hop across the club and the warehouse. For something a little different you’ll be wanting to head to HiFi Club – a club that can boast of being a three times winner of the ‘Best Nightclub’ at the annual Leeds Bar & Club Awards – is also home to the UK’s longest running weekly Soul night, MoveOnUp, on a Wednesday night. Great for Motown lovers and fancy dress haters (fancy dress and stag and hen parties are prohibited.)
The Garage, is one of the most popular destinations for students looking for a cheap night out and is also one of the longest standing student venues – it’s over 20 years old! A particular popular night is Neverland on a Thursday, this fun night includes the likes of bouncy castles and free candyfloss!
