Hales Place (or Hell’s Place by locals) is one of the most popular areas for UKC students to live in. It’s easy to see why given the generally affordable prices, as well as the short journeys to both campus and city centre. While it may get a bit rowdy at times, you’ll get the full student life experience here.
