Newcastle is probably the best city to live for students, with all amenities within your reach. The city is small, and everything is easily accessible. An Uber trip from one end to the other end costs less than £10. There are amazing restaurants to eat. Nearly every cuisine is available, and food apps have made it even possible to get the food within 20 minutes. Ousborne Road is famous for pubs, whereas the City Center is always bustling with its nightlife. The university is situated in the city center and as the accommodations are also nearby, so its very easy to commute to university or to the pubs/clubs. The Quayside is also very famous for its restaurants and the Millenium Bridge. Its a nice walk alongside the quay. The Eldon Shopping Center is also in the city center with all the major high street names. If you want more time for shopping, Meteocenter is just 10 mins away. Overlal the city is cheaper in terms of accommodation and food, as compared to other cities. I would definitely recommend Newcastle to everyone.
