Forget Hollywood, welcome to HULLYWOOD!

From vibrant bars to cheap cinemas, and infamous Monday nights to hidden gems. Hull has an  incredible range of hotspots for any student to explore. 

During my last three years here at University,  even now, Im still amazed as to how much goes on in the 2017 city of culture. Within a week of moving in I’d already realised that nightlife here by the Humber was quite different to my home county in rural Bedfordshire. The bars in the ‘Old Town’ and along Newland Avenue like the ‘Hangout Bar’ and ‘Roots’ offer a sophisticated evening for people wanting to ‘grab some grub’ and perhaps even enjoy a cocktail or two.

Also, word soon spread about the infamous Monday nights in the Piper club. It sometimes seems like the entire student population descends upon the club at 11pm every Monday.

Whereas, for those not interested in £1 shots and £2 pints, Hull has an array of cheap cinema’s located all around the city for students to sit back and relax, £5 or less for an evening of entertainment… What more could a student want? How about a hidden gem, located away from the hustle and bustle of the city which is arguably the best way to enjoy the wildlife during your time in Hull? Well, That would be the nature trails at the Humber Bridge Country Park.



So there you have it. Hull is truly an extraordinary place, but don’t take my word for it…  come and see for yourself!

  1. Stay positive – Focus on the good things. Remember why you worked so hard to get into university and focus on where you want to be in life.
  2. Believe in yourself – You’ve got this! You’ve worked hard to get into university and you have proven to yourself that you can do it. Keep going!
  3. Talk to a friend – Speak to a fellow university friend or a friend from home. Having a support network will take a lot of the weight off your shoulders.
  4. Enjoy yourself – University isn’t all about exams, coursework and lectures. Grab a drink at your local pub, chill out with friends or join a sports team or society and meet new people.
  5. Remember, things will get better – Don’t worry! Be confident in yourself and take 5 minutes to think about how well you’re doing! Getting to university is an amazing achievement. Be proud of yourself!
  6. Take breaks – Studying isn’t about not stopping for months or years at a time. You need breaks and you deserve them! Have an evening off to put your feet up, watch Netflix and forget about everything else. Go on, you know you want to!
  7. Look after yourself – Make sure you get enough sleep, eat healthy and exercise. This isn’t always what you want to be doing but trust me, it helps more than you realise!If you are suffering, please do not hesitate to contact one of the services below:
