Your University Questions, Answered.
Where are the nearest coffee shops?
Coffee is magic, isn’t it? Once you start your life at university, it will likely become an important source of inspiration for you. Naturally, with a campus supporting thousands and thousands of students whose brains are pumping out ideas and soaking up fresh knowledge – a regular coffee supply is an essential part of university life.
Whether you’re a latte lover, Americano amateur or quick espresso sipper, UEA has several café stops spread across campus so you can dart in and grab a cup between lessons, or take your study groups somewhere more casual. There’s Ziggy’s Espresso and Sandwich Bar right on our main Street, who host a different House and Gourmet Blend each month (and sell it for your cafetieres at home too). Science students can benefit from the Bio Café that sits in the light-flooded Atrium with its squishy leather sofas. The modern Julian Study Centre serves Costa Coffee classics, which is a particular treat around Christmas time with festive flavoured syrups.
If you’re a devout coffee fan who wants to venture off campus to explore the flavours of Norwich, you won’t be disappointed. Being a cultured creative hub, there is an incredible coffee subculture in our city with award-winning baristas and the cosiest cafes that function as the perfect study spot, with free wifi as standard. If you’re meeting a classmate or friend in town, we’d recommend trying Strangers, Milk & Moss or Kofra Coffee for the ultimate brown bean experience.
