"I am not a fan of clubs and pubs but, for those who like it, there are many places to go out."
"It's ok if you enjoy partying with sixth formers on a Friday night. The music isn't that diverse and 'urban' music is frowned upon. Pubs are largely aimed at the locals."
"We have a lot of bars but not much in the way of pubs."
"There are some clubs and bars on campus with great events."
"The university has its own bar by the students for the students. The SU bar shows football games and there is an underground nightclub called Sub Zero where most of the socials take place."
"The university has clubs on campus but the music is pretty bad."


"There are a lot of clubs and pubs in town but most people just stick to the campus nightlife."
"We have a few nightclubs but there's not much locally."
"There are places around to go shopping and there's also a Rollerworld and a gym."
"There are only a few pubs nearby."
"There are clubs and a cinema as well as places to eat and hang out."
"Very average. There are places like Liquid, Yates, Missoula, Cube and Hudsons that you can go to. Hudsons is the most expensive of them all. Liquid is where older people go and Missoula tends to be full of teenagers."
