Cinemas(plenty of them and special price for students) ScuBar (you can have a good bear in a relaxing atmospehre), Tropicana (where you can find most of the student drinking and dancing cheesy music at a good price), Crobar( just to have a brake), Opera House (pretty small but you can see ballets, operas, and the best musical in tournÚe all around U.K.)

Pretty good. I did not pay too much and I had a good service. I shared the flat with pretty people. My room was well furnished and the campus was just five-minute-walking from the University.
