Living in Northampton is the perfect way to meet new people and stand on your own two feet while you study. Discover our town here.
Northamptonshire is the perfect combination of bustling urban life and peaceful countryside. A short walk from campus and you’re right in the heart of the action – from student favourite pubs and clubs, to artisan coffee shops, local brands and themed restaurants.
You’ll also be spoiled for choice when it comes to retail therapy, with a mix of both high-street chains and independent stores both within the town centre and only a short bus ride away at the newly opened Rushden Lakes.
Do the Northampton Saints sound familiar? Franklin’s Gardens is home to Northampton’s famous rugby team, who compete at the very top level. Or you can take in a Northampton Town FC match at Sixfields Stadium and cheer on your new local team.
You’ll find Northampton in the heart of the country, meaning it’s easy to get to major cities and both Birmingham and London in only an hour by train.
Sometime fancy getting away from it all? you’ll be based only a short journey from the idyllic Northamptonshire countryside with canals, cycle routes and beautiful villages.
