It’s inevitable that you are going to have a fair few nights on the town especially with freshers week being a week long drink fest. Students apparently spend an average of £50 a week on nights out BUT it is part of student life and lets face it, the drinks aren’t getting any cheaper.
Here are out top money saving tips…
Prinks (Pre-drinks) – If you are going out drinking, it makes sense to maybe go out slightly later and have a few drinks in the comfort of your room with your pals instead. This will save you some serious cash and bar queuing time.
Go Out Early – Fancy a club? Then get there early. We’re not talking too early but a lot of clubs waver an entry fee (usually before 11pm) and some even have early bird drinks offers before a certain time too.
Set A Budget – Think about your maximum spend budget for the night (including taxi fare) and just take that out with you in cash, leave you bank card at home.
There’s nothing worse than the shock of checking your bank balance after a night out with the debit card, realising you’ve blow your food budget for the next two weeks.
Tuesdays Are The New Saturdays – Contrary to popular belief, partying doesn’t only happen at the weekends. Most Towns/Cities will have specific student nights full of drinks discounts so go and make the most of those.
Share Transport – Not only is it the safer option (please don’t travel alone) but if there is a group of you it can actually work out super cheap.
Stay In – I know this doesn’t count as going out but it is a good old money saver. You don’t have to drink either. You can get all your mates round, get your pj’s on, buy some snacks and watch movies instead.
Be warned though, you may get a serious case of FOMO!

For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
