If you’ve recently moved to London for a study abroad programme, chances are you’ll soon be making new friends. Whether you’re staying in university halls, with a local family doing a homestay or in a house share with fellow students, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet like-minded people and form close bonds to last a lifetime.

Many young people like to bond over nights out in clubs, bars or somewhere a little more low-key, and there are sure to be plenty of spots near your student accommodation. London is a lively hub of evening entertainment – you just need to know where to look. Here are some of the top spots for students.

The Roxy

If you’re looking for a venue with its own unique flare, The Roxy is the perfect spot. This bar is ideal for groups of friends just looking to enjoy a few cocktails in a place with a chilled-out vibe. The décor is mostly inspired by the 1920s, but has a few modern touches to make it a little edgier.

This basement bar is a short walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station, which is easily accessible from most student accommodation. London’s bars often have special offers during weekdays, so make sure you check the website before you go – this bar sometimes has a 2-4-1 deal.

Tiger Tiger

For a taste of the real London clubbing scene, head to Tiger Tiger in Piccadilly Circus. This club boasts six different rooms which each play their own style of music during the night, so you’ll easily find something to please the whole group. Drinks are relatively inexpensive too – all the more reason to head out and party!

For students, Monday nights are the best time to go to this club. The venue hosts a classic American-style frat party complete with red cups and beer pong, so you can have the London experience and an American experience all in one night.

The Dolphin

This local pub is a fantastic option for those looking for a night of classic party fun – karaoke, reasonably priced drinks and popular cheesy tunes. Though slightly smaller than the clubs in central London, this pub still has everything you could need for a great night out with your housemates.

Just a ten minute tube ride from Liverpool Street Station, The Dolphin will be easily accessible from your student accommodation. London’s student party scene truly thrives here, so why not go and see for yourself?

You’re sure to make great friendships on your study abroad programme no matter what, but a night out in the city is the perfect way to break the ice. Try one of these party venues and make friends to last a lifetime.
