Finding accommodation near Norwich University of the Arts
Located in the centre of Norwich, NUA is a fairly small university of around 2500 students and was only recently granted University status in 2013. Despite this, the Norwich University of the Arts has an extensive history in education, founded as the Norwich School of Design in 1845. As the name suggests, NUA focuses heavily on art and design fields, encompassing everything from fine art, to fashion and textiles, to game design, and film and visual effects.
Despite being city centre based, students in Norwich aren’t far from the great outdoors. The scenic county of Norfolk and rolling countryside are a short bus journey away, and popular seaside destinations like Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft can easily be reached by train or bus if you fancy a day out.
With only a few dedicated student halls, which are designated for first year students, many students at Norwich University of the Arts choose to live in private student housing. Across Norwich City Centre, providing easy access to the NUA campus buildings, many students live in one- or two-bedroom student apartments.
Moving outside of Norwich city centre, the area of the Golden Triangle encompasses a variety of three- and four-bed professional, student and family properties. NUA accommodation is plentiful around here and is an incredibly popular location for students at both Norwich universities. Bounded by Earlham Road to the north and Newmarket Road to the south there are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars across the entire Golden Triangle area.
Other student accommodation areas across Norwich are further out from the city centre, making travel times to the Norwich University of the Arts a little longer. Close to the University of East Anglia you’ll find North and West Earlham - a trendy student area where rents are cheap, student houses are larger and student life is buzzing. Earlham’s proximity to UEA means there’s excellent public transport routes to the city centre too.
Moving southward you’ll find Eaton, a more well-to-do area which is home to many of NUA and UEAs academic staff. Students who enjoy a round of golf at the weekends are in for a treat as Eaton Golf Club is on your doorstep, and with Newmarket Road nearby transport into the city is fast and regular.
Furthest from the Norwich University of the Arts is the region of Bowthorpe. A more modern residential area, Bowthorpe is home to a lot of families, but you can also find newer student housing options than you would elsewhere around Norwich. Again, public transport is easily accessible, but the maze of residential streets makes travel time into the city slightly longer than other areas.
