NHS dental treatment for students, staff and their families.
Located on the first floor of the Medical Centre on Bluebell Drive.
The dental practice is really useful to have on campus as it saves going into the city for dental treatment.
No excuse for piles of dirty washing in your room. There are four laundrettes dotted across the campus. Just get a laundry card, top it up and you’re good to go.
Various - The Street, The Village accommodation, the Medical Centre and Hickling and Barton accommodation.
A launderette is just vital. I think on-campus students would really struggle without one.
A picture-perfect cocktail bar in the heart of the city: great for the ‘gram.
9-11 Upper King Street, Norwich, NR3 1RB.
Cecilia’s is a very girly bar, but sells four Coronas for £10, which isn’t too bad. It has the best smoking area by far, felt like I was inside and very cosy for a night in November.
