Known for:

You’ll pay your fair share in gold to enjoy the pleasures of the ‘Golden Triangle’. With lecture halls, city centre, and student union on your doorstep, it is hard to find a location that is better (or more expensive). There’s something worthwhile in every direction, from the riverside to the sports grounds. The price keeps a lot of students out of Elvet, but everyone would live in the area if they could. Elvet is especially popular with final years, who might feel they have earned the luxury of proximity and want to finish out university in style.
