Student Life in York
York is an awesome place to live, it’s easy to get across 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. It’s 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 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 a National Museum, an 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 also has many, many pubs, restaurants and cafes which cover all tastes and budgets.
York is situated on the East Coast Main Line, 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.

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.
