The student halls are conveniently located just a short distance from the University of Huddersfield, so if you’re in Kirkgate, the Canalside Halls or slightly further afield you’ll have no trouble getting in to the university.
Of course you might be wondering how you’ll get around, so here are five options for getting in to the university from your student housing in Huddersfield:
Yes, really, you might not be used to walking, but at the University of Huddersfield you are so close to the action that you can get reacquainted with your feet. Those of you in the Kirkgate residences will have a six-minute walk to the university, so you can roll out of bed, get dressed and be at your lectures before you’ve properly woken up
It’s a similar story for those in Canalside Halls and Firth Point, who get a scenic walk over the Broad Canal into the university. Even those in Castings House, one of the furthest flung halls of residence, is just a nine-minute walk away, it’s one of the many benefits of going to university in Huddersfield as the whole town is literally on your doorstep.
Of course students will get familiar with the local buses and if you really cannot handle the walk after a heavy night out then the regular buses will make sure you get to university safe and sound. Storthes Hall Park is a little further afield, in the countryside, and that comes with a dedicated shuttle bus for just £15 a year. Closer to town, the local bus service will take you wherever you need to go, whether that is to the library for a late night cramming session or to town for a late night.
If a few of you are feeling lazy, then you could club together for an Uber fare into the city. Uber launched in Huddersfield in May 2015 and has swiftly become established as a cheaper alternative to the traditional black cab. It’s still a luxury for students, but sometimes you just have to spoil yourself.
If you don’t want to walk and a taxi seems too much, then you could always turn to the old student faithful and get your bicycle out. It will help you keep fit, there are plenty of places to leave it on campus and you’ll get that warm fuzzy glow of knowing that you’re getting fitter with each passing day. The Yorkshire Moors are on your doorstep, too, so this is nirvana for cycling enthusiasts.
5. Inline skates
Huddersfield is hardly the boardwalk in Los Angeles, but you’ll still find students skating to university. So if you want a left-field option, this might be the one to go for.
