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!

Excelente ubicacion, atencion y servicio. Muy cuidado todo, las recepcionistas siempre ayudando y dando atencion. Lo recomiendo.
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.
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.
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 have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
I had an excellent experience living in Brickworks during the last year in Dublin! All the staff members were always very friendly and did everything they could to make people feel welcome and we had a very good atmosphere among the residents. The flats themselves were comfortable and provided excellent living and working space, and the proximity to the city centre means you can experience the Dublin atmosphere. I have met many people and friends that I will take with me for life. If I were to live in Dublin, I would not hesitate to live in Brickworks again, it really was a great place to live!
