"The union bar FiveSixEight and Metric are all near my campus. On Saturdays I go to Piccadilly, around China Town and Soho to enjoy the pubs and clubs there."
"Everything you could think of and no end of options; this is central London after all!"
"London offers a lot of activities, but not in the very proximity of the university campus. It is necessary to go further (a few tube stops) to get into the real centre. To be honest though, I am not a very nightlife person, so I do not care too much, but it also makes it harder to find nice things to do."
"Every Wednesday is sports night and the union is packed and buzzing. Being in London there are dozens of student nights out all days of the week so you are spoilt for choice. The college has the highest number of societies out of all universities in the UK."
"The Imperial College union is second to none for a sports night on Wednesday. We're located in the heart of London so great clubs are always nearby."
"Very little in the immediate area but the city centre is easily accessible via the Underground."
"There is every type of night club or pub available for you to go to in London. However, it may take a while for you to travel there as it is such a huge city, which can be annoying."
"There is basically everything you can think of and endless possibilities. If you can think of something or would like to do something, London can probably offer it somewhere."
"Only expensive places are available near the university. There are a few student nights but they all take place quite far away. The sports nights are quite good."


"Everything that you could want. However, it is expensive."
"If you like clubbing, there's definitely loads of places you can get to in Soho etc. I personally prefer comedy clubs and there are plenty in Central London!"
"It's London..."
"Name it: clubs, bars, cocktails, pubs, theatre, opera, musicals, comedy, live music, dance clubs, karaoke etc etc."
"Pretty much everything including gigs, art, free talk and sport."
"It's LONDON! You can do anything and everything. Cost is the only issue."
"It's London, so there's a place to go for pretty much anything you could ever imagine. The only downside is that nights out can be very expensive."
"There is everything in London! From bars to clubs, from theatres to concerts."
"Literally everything from clubbing to boat parties to laser tag to bowling to skydiving (indoors obviously)."
"London has plenty of things: clubs of all types of music and bars of different themes. There are always gigs and concerts taking place. London's also famous for its markets and tourist attractions."
