Lower cost of living

Huddersfield is just the place to find your feet and become more independent. Unlike some large cities, Huddersfield offers a relatively low cost of living, giving you more for your money. This means it’s easier to enjoy all that Huddersfield, the University and the surrounding areas have to offer with fewer compromises. 

Easy access to local, big cities

Leeds and Manchester are both just a quick train ride away. This means you can enjoy the best of city life including social, cultural and entertainment events, while living and studying in a friendly and welcoming town.

And, with good connections to the M62 and M1 it’s easy to reach the rest of the UK by car or bus.

A perfect day in Huddersfield
