Student Accommodation in Norwich
Featuring two Cathedrals, two universities, Britain’s Greenest Building and Europe’s largest undercover market, Norwich is a fabulous city, voted one of the best places to live in the UK in 2018!
Known as the City of Stories, Norwich was England’s first UNESCO City of Literature and is home to Steve Coogan’s colourful sitcom character Alan Partridge. Plus, being located in the countryside county of Norfolk and featuring part of a national park within the city boundaries means Norwich has some of the prettiest Uni campuses.
Between the University of East Anglia and the Norwich University of the Arts, the city of Norwich has a student population of just around 20,000, which is quite small for a city with two unis! However, the density of the city and blend of modern and historic buildings means wherever you go there’s a strong feeling of community.
This variety extends itself into the options for student accommodation in Norwich too. Norwich student housing is available in a range of options from cosy flats and apartments, to large house shares and everything in between.
Being a close and densely populated city, student accommodation in Norwich is spread across a few areas, including Norwich city centre, the Golden Triangle, Eaton and Earlham. Buses are regular, so if you don’t mind a little extra travel time to and from campus, areas like Bowthorpe are also excellent options for students seeking cheaper rents, larger properties and better value for money.
UniHomes showcase all of the best student houses in Norwich, catering to all groups of students, from individuals up to groups of ten or more. Plus, all UniHomes properties are all-inclusive, so the rent you see here is all you’ll pay. Covering your rent, electricity, gas, water, broadband and TV license, all-inclusive bills means no hassle, no stress and no unwanted surprise bills through the door!
Being a Student in Norwich
Steeped with history and bursting with culture, Norwich is a fantastic, yet underrated, student city. It has two large shopping centres with all the major high street brands you would expect to find in a modern UK city, as well as winding streets filled with independent stores retailing vintage clothing, antiques, vinyl records and more.
Socialites won’t be disappointed either, with a wide selection of social hubs to hang out in, covering the likes of cosy cafes, bustling bars and mainstream nightclubs blasting anthems across all genres from reggae, to ska, to techno.
Situated between picturesque seaside locations and rolling countryside landscape, Norwich’s unique location provides plenty of opportunity for students to explore. With London under two hours away by rail, and trips to the coast just a short train or bus journey away, days out are varied and cater to all tastes.
Within the University of East Anglia, students are spoilt for choice with well over 200 different societies and clubs to join, catering to all interests and providing amazing opportunities to meet new people, share experiences and learn exciting new skills. As a smaller university in comparison, the Norwich University of the Arts has around 30 societies within the student’s union.
Norwich has a great deal to offer on the cultural side too. Home to Norwich Castle, two cathedrals, medieval churches and a hoard of art galleries and museums, you won’t be short of ideas for more intellectual and sophisticated day trips.
Finally, for students seeking a more active lifestyle outside of lectures, Norwich is home to plenty of excellent sports facilities, across the UEA and NUA campus’ and the wider city. Students can try out activities like rowing, indoor climbing or even dry-slope skiing! The local countryside also provides cyclists with amazing cycle routes off the beaten path where you can drink in the fresh air and enjoy some time away from the bustle of city life.
