As for nightlife the The city's pubs and clubs are close to the uni, most are on one street so walkingis no worry. If you're new to Leicester then you can check out some of its sights, including one of England's largest markets under one roof. You can get a student ticket for a football or rugby match, visit one of the city's old real ale pubs, or get some retail therapy in one of two shopping centres.
