The University of Plymouth is ranked in the top 3% of degree-granting providers of higher education in the world (in the CWUR World University Rankings) and has more than 23,000 students. Our student accommodation in Plymouth is ideal for anyone studying in this beautiful, historic sea-faring city. A walk around The Hoe offers up the chance to check out views of Plymouth Sound and Drake’s Island, and to see where Sir Francis Drake played bowls when the Spanish Armada made its way up the English Channel!
Students in the area flock to Plymouth Pavilions for regular live music gigs, and there are three bars run by the Student Union on the main University of Plymouth campus. Elsewhere Switch, on North Hill, is a lively venue where dancing into the wee hours is always on the cards, and OMG is one of the area’s most instantly-recognisable nightclubs.
As for retail therapy, even the shops pay homage to Plymouth’s past, with the wonderfully-named Armada Centre and Drake Circus hosting independent and big-name stores, restaurants and cafes. The city centre is packed with a diverse range of outlets that meet every need.
