Fuelling UEA and NHS staff with freshly made meals.
Located in the Edith Cavell Building, off the main entrance lobby.
The most convenient place for healthcare students. Lovely staff and a great place to rush to between lectures at the Edith Cavell Building for a quick coffee or snack to perk you up. It won’t break the bank.
Send presents, cards and online shopping returns, all in one place.
The Street, just off The Square, University of East Anglia.
Having a post office on campus that’s central and easy to reach has been handy more times than I care to admit – especially when I’ve ordered too much online shopping and have to return it!
Sample Jerusalem street food and eat fresh for less.
39 Magdalen Street, Norwich, NR3 1LQ.
They just want to feed you and feed you well! The food is cheap but super tasty with great portion sizes. As a student, you can eat-in for free, so it’s a great spot for lunch.
Join the party in Norwich’s longest-standing LGBT nightclub.
78-80 Rose Lane, Norwich, NR1 1PT.
It has to be Loft really. This gay bar is cheap to get into, stays open late, has great music and vibes and there’s karaoke on the ground floor too!
Ideal for browsing or serious shopping, alone or with friends.
1 Market Place, Norwich, NR2 1ND.
They have literally everything. So many different foods and loads of other great stalls, including vintage shops. My friends have bought great jackets for as little as £5! There’s also a reasonably priced cobbler who can fix your shoes.
