Hull Road is considered to be the most popular area for University of York students. Due to the popularity, you should expect to pay a bit more for rent here. While there are plenty of buses, you probably won't need them as campus is just a short walk away. You won't need to travel far for nights out either, since all the clubs in the city centre will be down the road.
