Student Life in York

York is a vibrant, modern city which has a deep and rich heritage at its heart. It’s easy to get around on foot or by bike, but big enough that there’s loads to do, always something to see and so many places to eat and drink.

The city hosts a diverse range of cultural festivals which take place throughout the year. These include the renowned Aesthetica Short Film Festival, the Great Yorkshire Fringe comedy festival and York Literature Festival. Other popular tourist events, which happen annually in the city, include the York Chocolate Festival, JORVIK Viking Festival and Illuminating York.

York is also a great place to study, and York St John University is right at the heart of the city. While you’re a student with you could join in with Students’ Union activities or perhaps take up a new sport or hobby. Although York is a small city there’s lots to see and do no matter what your tastes for adventure are! With the National Railway Museum, a city Art Gallery which was nominated for Museum of the Year 2016 and the newly refurbished York Theatre Royal in the centre of town you’ll get your culture fix right on your doorstep.

York is exceptionally well-placed for getting out and about in both the region of Yorkshire and across the country, with big cities such as Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle only a short train journey away as well as the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors within easy reach. 

Travel information

York is an accessible and cultured city. Edinburgh is just 2.5 hours to the north and London is 2 hours south. The Megabus stops off at York, with fares as low as £1 you’d be mad not to use it. Big cities like Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield are all easily accessible by train. Get a day pass on the city’s bus network at student rates plus there’s a termly or annual card available too for York St John students. If you want to get away from it all and jet off to exotic locations then it’s only a quick train journey to Manchester Airport and Leeds Bradford Airport is easily accessible from Leeds by bus.
