Student Life in Suffolk

Suffolk is a classic county on the east coast of England. The region has a distinctive blend of modern towns, old villages and hamlets, ancient castles and churches, and forest, heath and farmland. Suffolk has 45 miles of coastline made up of glorious stretches of unspoilt beaches, nature reserves, sandy cliffs and peaceful marshes.

Suffolk has 45 miles of coastline made up of glorious stretches of unspoilt beaches, nature reserves, sandy cliffs and peaceful marshes. Ipswich is the county town of Suffolk and with its metropolitan atmosphere is packed with shops, restaurants, cosy bistros, pubs and clubs, all within walking distance of the Ipswich Campus. Many of the nightclubs in Ipswich run nights especially for students.

The Cardinal Park leisure complex provides a multiplex cinema, restaurants and nightclubs; ideal for students looking for varied nights out. The Ipswich Campus is located close to Portman Road, the home ground of Ipswich Town Football Club. There are three theatres in Ipswich. The newly renovated Wolsey Theatre offers a range of modern adventurous productions. The smaller Sir John Mills Theatre offers an eclectic selection of amateur and professional productions. There is also the Regent Theatre which offers major touring acts, both in drama and music. Ipswich has developed a thriving music scene across a range of genres with lots of opportunities for new bands to play in smaller venues. Larger bands play at Portman Road, where acts such as The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, REM and Elton John have played to over 20,000 fans. Suffolk as a county offers a diverse range of cultural and arts events. The county is well served for both major professional events and smaller scale and amateur events.

Travel information

map

University of Suffolk encourages students, staff and visitors to avoid single occupancy car journeys wherever possible. As well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and congestion, walking and cycling provide good exercise and journeys on public transport can be safer, more productive and less stressful than journeys made by car. If car travel is necessary, car-sharing is the most environmentally, economically and socially sustainable option. Some employers (including University of Suffolk) pay additional expenses for each passenger carried on official business.
