After getting your bearings on campus you’ll want to start venturing into the centre of town. Just a two minute walk from the University you’ll find everything you need to make student life better.
Head to Kingsgate for your favorites from the high street and go crazy spending and saving with your new NUS Extra discount card. Whilst you’re nearby it’s always worth checking out the Packhorse centre and The Piazza too! Byram Arcade is where you will find our independent offerings, everything from crafts to fashion and essential art supplies. Markets are always worth exploring for bargains and Huddersfield has two.
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!
Don’t feel like you need to stop there, head to the train station in the middle of Town and you can find yourself in the center of Leeds in 20 minutes, Manchester in 30 minutes and Sheffield within the hour. If cities aren’t your thing and you fancy some of our fresh Yorkshire air we have plenty of that too, head on up to the bus station and from here you can get to hot-spots like Holmfirth, Marsden or Slaithwaite within 20 minutes.
