Student houses in Plymouth
While there are lots of student houses in Plymouth, one of the most popular areas is Greenbank.

Located close to Drake Circus, Plymouth’s largest shopping centre, the train station is also close by.
Also, there are student bars and restaurants in Greenbank and its close proximity to the University of Plymouth campus means that university and Student Union organised events and activities are easy to access.
Cheaper student accommodation in Plymouth
For cheaper student accommodation in Plymouth, then you should be looking at Lipson and Mutley.
Both of these areas are less expensive but are further away from the University campus.
However, like Greenbank, these are established student neighbours with student bars, shops, and cafes available.
Public transport from Lipson and Mutley is plentiful and regular and just about everything a student will need is found a short walking distance away.
Of the two areas, Mutley offers more amenities and activities with pubs and fast-food chains.
