Modern Life Café
The place to go for lunch (or brunch) with a view.
Located in The Sainsbury Centre.
I think my top place for food on campus would be the Sainsbury Centre because you can enjoy good food in such a lovely building.
Live music and club nights where you can dance the night away.
Located in Union House on campus.
The LCR is the place to go for a cheap night out. It hosts lots of events, from gigs to student nights, which are always really busy. And it’s on campus so is easy to reach!
Indulge your sweet tooth with desserts, pastries and other delights.
23 St John Maddermarket, Norwich, NR2 1DN.
A small but beautiful establishment offering a range of interesting pastries and hot drinks. It’s ideal for a quick catch up and coffee with friends. I think it would be good for a quiet read while you people-watch too.
Mantra Club & Lounge
Home to Norwich’s biggest student night and many other special events.
Prince of Wales Road, Norwich, NR1 1LL.
I enjoy Mantra because it plays music like afrobeats and R’n’B, which I love.
