Student life in Huddersfield

City life and epic Yorkshire countryside meet in Huddersfield - a friendly country vibe permeates this lively cultural town

An authentic taste of the north of England can be found in Huddersfield. Set in the lush countryside of Yorkshire, the beautiful buildings give the town a classic Victorian atmosphere, but its diversity, spirit and friendliness are just as important in making this town a real favourite for students worldwide. Old industrial canals are now pretty walkways. More serious walks and an array of outdoor activities, can be found in the rolling Pennine hills that surround the city.

Students enjoy an array of popular nights in the city from live music to relaxed film evenings. What’s more, Huddersfield and its surrounding towns and villages have a lively year round events calendar. Expect food and drink, literature, film, folk and funk festivals to name just a few!  

You'll be roughly halfway between Liverpool and Manchester by train, giving you the freedom to explore England's biggest and most vibrant Northern cities. The train station is a listed building, beautifully preserved and described by poet John Betjeman as 'the most splendid station façade in England'.

Huddersfield is a creative city, with its own contemporary music festival and a theatre. People who live here call it one of the happiest towns in the UK. New, exciting restaurants and cafés run by local people are opening all the time. That inclusive community spirit will also help you to settle in and feel safe during your time here.
