A great place to study
Wolverhampton is a city in the West Midlands which is home to more than 250,000 people – so you can guarantee that it’s bustling and you’ll never be bored! If you’re going there to study, you may well find yourself at the University of Wolverhampton, which has over 500 courses to choose from. Alternatively, lots of students go to the City of Wolverhampton College instead.
Wolverhampton is diverse and whilst small compared to other cities, there’s a lot to do in and around the area with a host of shops, bars and restaurants – so you’ll feel right at home in no time at all! Plus, one of the benefits to being so centrally located is that you’re close to loads of other cities and towns, too.
As our Wolverhampton student accommodation is just a stone’s throw away from the University of Wolverhampton’s City Campus, you’ll never be too far away from your lectures or the city centre.
Food and drink
There are plenty of eateries in Wolverhampton, from the well-known chicken haven, Nando’s, to the patisserie come café, Patisserie Valerie. There are lots of local spots, too, such as The Bluebrick and The George Wallis, which serve traditional British pub grub.
In fact, Wolverhampton is full of pubs and bars including Yates’s, Goose, Royal London and Hogshead, so whether you’re looking for a light bite or a place to meet with friends, Wolverhampton’s got it all.
If you’re looking for something slightly different and off the beaten track, then try the Indian restaurant – Johnny Spice – or the Thai restaurant – Made in Thai. There’s even a place called the Little Dessert Shop which is dedicated to serving desserts, and we hear they do some great ice cream sundaes!
Of course, thanks to the fact that our student accommodation in Wolverhampton is so centrally located, you’ll never have to go hungry!
Sports and leisure
If you’re sporty, Wolverhampton is a great match for you, and our Wolverhampton student housing will ensure that you’re at the heart of all the action!
If you’re going to be a student at the University of Wolverhampton, you’ll find sports ranging from volleyball and cricket, to table tennis and basketball. You don’t have to be a pro sports player either, as students at any level are welcome to join in. But if you do have a competitive side, then you can compete in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) through the Student Union clubs.
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, get yourself down to Wolverhampton’s Wolf Mountain Indoor Climbing Centre, which is full of activities from abseiling and archery to indoor caving and indoor climbing. It’s perfect for a bit of flatmate bonding!
Are you less of a participator and more of a supporter? That works, too! Why not support the Wolverhampton Wanderers at a football match in Molineux Stadium? Go Wolves!
Culture and music
Whilst you may not think that Wolverhampton is a cultural hub, it has a number of cultural attractions such as Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the Light House Media Centre, which offers two cinema screens as well as a café bar and galleries; it’s a hidden gem within Wolverhampton and is well worth a visit.
Going to gigs and concerts is a huge part of your student experience, and Wolverhampton won’t leave you lacking in this department. You’ll be sure to sing and dance the night away at Wolverhampton Civic Hall, showcasing acts from all around the world. The Arena Theatre offers literally every kind of music you can imagine, whilst displaying jaw-dropping production of international acts on a big stage.
Got festival fever? Good news – V Festival is right on your doorstep! If you’re sticking around for the summer, you can head on out to catch all the acts, whilst still having a comfy bed to sleep in after!
You could also take a look at Bratch Locks on the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal, where you’ll be able to spot wildlife and relax next to the water – perfect for those lazy summer afternoons.
The Grand Theatre, which is located on Lichfield Street in Wolverhampton, has a number of shows on throughout the year and you’ll find everything from comedy and dance to drama, musicals and pantomimes.
Fancy something different? Be sure to visit Clockwork Escapes, where you’ll have to solve puzzles in order to escape from a locked room – it’s sure to be an interesting bonding experience with your new flatmates.
Wolverhampton has a reliable bus network which runs throughout the city, and the closest bus stop is less than a minute away by foot from your student accommodation.
Need to go further afield? No problem! National Express coaches also run from Wolverhampton Bus Station; here you can get a coach to Birmingham, London or even to Edinburgh. The University of Wolverhampton also operates a free inter-campus shuttle bus between the Wolverhampton, Walsall and Telford campuses – aren’t you lucky?

If you’re looking for a bit of peace and relaxation, be sure to visit Wolverhampton’s West Park, which has a large boating lake and tennis courts. You could even have a picnic here with friends and enjoy the best of the British weather. You may even catch a tan!

You’ll find lots of different supermarkets and takeaways dotted all over the place, so you’ll never have to go without.

Of course, if you’re after a bank, a Post Office or something else useful to run some errands, Wolverhampton has got them in abundance.
If you want to do a little extra learning outside of your studies, you’ll also find local libraries, too.
There are various attractions in the surrounding areas, if you fancy a bit of an adventure with your flatmates. Wild Zoological Park is a great attraction for animal lovers and it’s just off the B4176 (which means that you’ll need a car or taxi to take you there). Here you’ll find everything from wallabies to meerkats and crocodiles.

Liberty Living operates in accordance with the National Code of Standards for student accommodation. The Code of Standards is run by ANUK (The Accreditation Network UK), the NUS, and Unipol Student Homes, and is supported by universities across the UK.

Liberty Living follow a distinct set of standards for our student accommodation, called the ANUK/Unipol National Codes. The purpose of these Codes, (membership of which is voluntary), is to provide students with professional housing services.
The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.
What does being a member of the codes mean?
- Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
- Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
- If problems do occur they can be promptly resolved.
- The independent complaints procedure operated by the Codes can be used for complaint resolution.
