Wolverhampton, which is better known as Wolves to locals, has become one of the bigger cities in the West Midlands. The University of Wolverhampton is the only university in Wolves, but being so close to Walsall and Birmingham, offers students great opportunities to find student pads or houses in Wolverhampton. Wolverhampton is home to around 24,000 students, so if you’re leaving home for the very first time, it’s a good city to pick. Wherever you find university students, you’ll end up finding plenty of bars and clubs to cater for them, Wolves being no different. Get yourself a NUS card to save 10% on drinks and discounted entry to clubs and bars around the city. Jump on the metro and be in Birmingham in 25 minutes, a bus to Walsall takes a little longer. The local high street is just like any other, and has everything you need to do your day to day shopping. If you’re really in a hurry to blow your student loan, just catch the metro to Birmingham Bullring, which has over 150 stores for you to shop till you drop! The locals are footie mad with most of them following Wolverhampton Wanders, great stadium atmosphere, cheap match day tickets, it’s just a shame about the team though! For attractions that don’t cost anything, the West Park in Wolves was voted one of the best parks in the UK a few years ago, great for relaxing, studying or running. To learn more about the local history and traditions, the award winning Black Country Museum is pretty awesome to go and check out, it’s more of an interactive museum. Wolverhampton doesn't have much of a reputation for being a place where students go, but it does home a great deal of them. The city is quite cheap, enough things to see and do, Wolverhampton student accommodation can be found throughout the city close to the local university. Good value student houses and flats with modern amenities, in good central locations can be found without much effort.
