Middlesbrough is at the heart of the North East situated on the banks of the River Tees and surrounded by beautiful coast and countryside. The many shops, art galleries and annual festivals make Middlesbrough an ideal location to experience a diverse range of culture.
The Sunday Times University Guide voted Middlesbrough’s city centre based University as having the cheapest university managed accommodation in the UK – this means plenty of spare cash for students to explore the range of attractions on offer.
Here’s what students have to say about Middlesbrough...
If your looking for a break from the usual student haunts then Central Park is the place to go. It is an American Italian restaurant in classy surroundings with an accompanying bar. My friends and I often visit here to treat ourselves but it won’t break the bank too much because they do daily offers and student discounts to help us enjoy a little bit of luxury!
If you stick around for the Summer then I would recommend a visit to the Middlesbrough Music Live festival. There are usually loads of new bands and local talent playing across various stages and in venues around the town centre plus comedy and open mic areas. Better than that are the headline acts, in the past couple of years I’ve seen Kasabian, Keane, The Ordinary Boys and Ocean Colour Scene – all without parting with a single penny.
