"Surprisingly, I haven't seen many nightclubs or good pubs around."
"There's a student bar, but we usually go to Shoreditch. Cargo is a must for students but very expensive. Ministry of Sound is cheaper but not as cool."
"You can easily make your own fun but City doesn't organise many social events."
"City has its own bar that's only for students and there are some pubs around the university as well as restaurants and more bars about a 10 to 20 minute walk away."
"Xoyo, Ministry and Cargo are all interesting clubs."
"It is London so it's very vibrant and lively. Many pubs are within close proximity of the university and the transport links make other areas accessible as well."


"There's a wide variety of options for the town's nightlife."
"There's lots as we're in a very central location. However, it is expensive."
"I have not experienced the nightlife in London but I know people enjoy it, despite it being expensive."
"Angel station is nearby so you can find many trendy restaurants and bars."
"Anything and everything... It's London."
"A lot. Clubbing and restaurants can be found next to Angel, Hoxton, Kings Cross and Barbican."
"There's ALWAYS something to do in London. It never gets boring."
"It's London so there are great locations to go to."
"Drinking at bars, clubbing at clubs. For academics and 'professionals' there are some events that go on in other London universities that I think anyone can usually go to."
"Everything. Shoreditch is nearby so there are lots of activities in the area."
