    Hi,

    I want to study Computer game programming and I'm wondering in which city near the university is better to live.

    I read online that Stoke is in urban decay and that everything is moving to Hanley, can someone give me a bit of advice?

    I would like to live in an active city where there is people around and lots of stores and restaurants and that stuff, also is important night life for me.

    Thanks!!!

    I’m not sure about the Uni accommodation but in my 4th and 5th year at Keele (neighbor Uni), I stayed at Liberty Court which is a short walk from Staffs Uni. It’s private ensuite halls with 4 to a flat. I enjoyed it. Staff are brilliant. Lots of Staffs students seemed to be living there! Walking distance to Hanley where the main nightlife is. Also could get to Staffs Union.

    I wouldn’t say Staffs is buzzing with activity or nightlife though. It’s a pretty poor city overall.

    I’ve lived in Keele, Stoke, Shelton (where Staffs Uni is), Newcastle and Longton!

    Personally, I recommend living in the University Quarter in Stoke. It's split between the Shelton and Fenton sections of Stoke-on-Trent, and about a 30min walk from Hanley. It's the best place to be a student, because it's got everything you need but is far enough from Hanley that it never gets too loud. Basically the whole ST4 postal region is just private accommodation for students!
