I am a recent graduate of the University of Westminster and had a great experience with the nightlife during my time there. In my first year we had various freshers events organised months ahead of time and I found it useful to be a part of Facebook groups (more popular at the time) dedicated to Westminster students and nights out in the September. For the first two weeks we had a option for pretty much every night and these were located in clubs and bars mainly in the West End or Piccadilly in places like Tiger Tiger, or Ministry of Sound which is just south of the river.
There is a natural concern for the price of nights out in central London as you will have essential budgeting for those first months of university but many of the events that were advertised had discount priced drinks and entry tickets. These flyers would usually come through our door in our student halls of residence and it was a case of taking your of pick of which place to go. Another thing - you won't just be going to these events with Westminster students but people from across a range of London universities who are most likely studying in the capital for the same reasons as yourself.
This period of university is one of the best opportunities to meet and socialise with other people your own age and make friendships that will carry through the semesters.
Beyond your freshers week and going into your second or third years you will probably arrange more nights out with your classmates and often we would go straight to the pubs near our Regent Street campus on Thursday nights which some tutors would come along to.
In addition, you have the spread of London to choose from too. Camden has a very good music and bar scene that allows you to stick to one high street, or you might be more interested in clubs in central London such as Egg, or eat out places in your local area. All in all, it is what you make of it but you won't find yourself in short supply of options.
