Known for its vibrant nightlife and thriving city scene, Sunderland has become a favourite amongst the student population in recent years. Boasting excellent value for money, quality student accommodation and one of the Top 5 Student Unions in the UK as voted at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2015, having the best time of your life at university is possible when staying and studying in the city. In partnership with the University of Sunderland, we deliver on all fronts to provide a stylish and supported base for students with our student housing options within easy reach of the heart of the city and just a short journey to the region’s sandy beaches and stunning coastlines.
With city, coast and countryside all up for grabs, Sunderland is a diverse place to live and study, in fact, as many longstanding residents will tell you, no weekend or evening will be the same. With a recent survey revealing that the city is also one of the top five locations in the UK for earning a living, you may even find that your love affair with Sunderland lasts beyond your time at university.
In addition to boasting a long list of attractions, including the Sunderland Empire Theatre, National Glass Centre and Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, its intoxicating mix of night and day activities means you can experience life as a student in all its glory. By day, enjoy acres of green space and miles of sandy beaches, and by night, take in the city’s thriving underground music scene, the best in Britain in our humble opinion! Each season provides an itinerary of exciting events and festivals. Its excellent travel links also ensure that many destinations in the rest of the UK are easily accessible, making nights out in nearby cities and quick trips back home possible for many.
Studying, socialising and exploring are all possible, and with so much to keep you busy, who knows, the city of Sunderland may even become your mainstay.
