Famed for its sporting achievements and key involvement in the Industrial revolution, Huddersfield proudly retains a history of being a forward thinking town. As one of England’s largest, this West Yorkshire location sits equidistant between the thriving cities of Leeds and Manchester, and plays host to a sole institute of higher education, The University of Huddersfield.
With a strong reputation in research and graduate employment, the University of Huddersfield has been named as the Times Education Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2012. Also ranked amongst the top 10 English Universities for teaching excellence, this constantly growing campus is set to introduce a new £22.5 million learning and Leisure Centre, breathing new life into the onsite use of library, computing, sport, leisure, eating, social and meeting facilities.
Nightlife remains relatively humble in Huddersfield. However, with Leeds and Manchester on your doorstep, you have easy access to the best late night student experience the UK has to offer. Of course, those seeking entertainment closer to home are still in for a treat. Traditional pubs come thick and fast, with The Rat & Ratchet, The Rose & Crown and The Old New Inn all likely to have ‘the usual’ on tap.
Local museums form the basis for the areas’ fascinating history, with The National Coal Mining Museum and Yorkshire Sculpture Park introducing you to the cultural ambience of the region. Meanwhile more modern pursuits are highlighted by local cinemas, clubs and spas, with Le Petit Spa proving a must for any appropriately pampered afternoon out.
Fledgling foodies can choose from late night takeaways, all day Michelin restaurants and early morning bistros, with our personal palette highly recommending the likes of The Golden Fleece, the Junction, The Sands House and, for a typically English experience, the Royal & Ancient pub.
With all this at your doorstep, it’s no wonder that Student Accommodation in Huddersfield is always in demand. So, for the very best selection of Huddersfield Student Halls and excellent Student Housing in Huddersfield, look no further than our list of the very best this fantastic town has to offer:
