Student Accommodation in Huddersfield

Written by Sam | March 8, 2021

Huddersfield is home to the University of Huddersfield which has just under 15,000 students.

I believe Huddersfield is often overlooked as a university, it is a relatively young university and has grown a lot in recent years. It has expanded and offers a lot of courses but it’s main courses are engineering, the arts and business.

With a lower cost of living compared to other parts of the UK, Huddersfield is a strong choice for students. Set between Leeds and Manchester, it offers easy access to two major northern cities and good transport connections to London if you are travelling in and out of the country.

The Peak District National Park is also within easy reach for students.
