Student Homes in St Johns, Worcester
Known to the locals as the Village in the City, St John’s balances cosiness with culture to make for a homely suburb ideal for new and returning students.
Thanks to the vibrant student community who attend Worcester University at the St John’s campus, the area is blessed with a lively and welcoming atmosphere. Student homes here range from new build apartments to semi-detached homes for groups small and large – whichever you choose, you’ll benefit from close proximity to the campus. Since it opened its doors in 1946, the university has established a reputation for world-class teaching and pioneering research. As well as its impressive Business School, St John’s campus is also home to the Hive – Europe’s first university and public library.
Lovers of sport will find this Worcester suburb ideal: as well as the grounds of the Worcester County Cricket Club that has a rich history stretching back to the 1800s, St John’s has strong links to basketball. In the year 2000, the Worcester Wolves Basketball Team were founded and now play at the university’s £2.5million ‘state of the art’ Sports Hall. Today, the team are in the top division of British Basketball. There’s also a gorgeous golf and country club in the area for those looking to practise their swing and soak up the good vibes on a summer’s day.
Besides the campus, St John’s is loved for its luscious local parks – Chapter Meadows being a favourite among families and the student community. Stroll through at sunset for expansive views of the city and the cathedral or make the most of the greenery for a picnic when the weather allows. While this suburb offers plenty of local amenities to keep your cupboards stocked and your drinks flowing, there are also plenty of buses to take you to the nearby Worcester city centre or to visit friends in Arboretum.
