The first thing to do when you feel familiar with the campus is to venture into town! You’ll only have to cross the road and you’ll be right next to the Kingsgate shopping centre, where you can find your typical high-street shops, it's here your NUS Extra discount card really starts to pay for itself! If that’s not enough, the Piazza and Packhorse shopping centres have plenty more familiar shops on offer, markets are always worth exploring for bargains and Huddersfield has two and everything is just a short walk away! If you’re looking for something a little bit different, try the Byram Arcade; a beautiful shopping centre home to some of Huddersfield’s more niche shops and the number one student nightclub – Camel Club!
After all that shopping you will need to refuel. It’s no secret that us Yorkshire folk like our food and Huddersfield has a lot to offer. No matter what you food you feel like we have a restaurant to match: local joints include; Med-One for Lebanese, binge on Brazillian at Boto-Fogo and Gringos offers a hearty range of Mexican cuisine. Not sure what you fancy why not plan your visit around our famous annual Food And Drink Festival and try them all!
Are you missing home or friends at other universities? Huddersfield’s train station means nothing’s too far away, with Manchester and Leeds feeling like they’re right next-door. If you’re looking for a slightly more wild destination, thank your stars that Huddersfield is nestled in the Yorkshire moorlands, easily one of the most picturesque places in England!
