Student Discounts in Hull 

Hull is an incredibly student-friendly city, meaning you can get a huge range of student discounts around the city. By simply asking before you pay if student discounts are accepted, you can then show your student ID and take advantage of the benefits! From clothes shops and cinemas to public transport and pubs, there are a huge number of local and national businesses willing to give student discounts!

Planning Ahead of Time

Planning ahead of time is a great way to help you save money. After your rent, the biggest expense you’ll experience is usually your grocery shopping. By planning your meals for the week, you can go to the shop and buy exactly what you need without spending money on unnecessary extras. Buying and cooking your own food is considerably cheaper than eating out and ordering takeaways, and can be just as nice!

Utilise the Library & Second-Hand Course Books

The University of Hull is lucky enough to have a huge 7-floor library with a large collection of study books, rare books, articles, journals and even e-books to help you during your studies. By utilising the library, you can save money by not having to use paid online services. 

Second-hand course books are another great way to help save money. Brand new coursebooks can be a heavy investment and, depending on your course, you could end up paying hundreds of pounds for study materials. Instead of spending hundreds, save hundreds by buying your course books second-hand!
