I'm moving to Norwich next year but I don't know what areas are good to live in. I'll need to be near the university or near the bus routes which can take me to the uni easily.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Are you looking to rent or buy a property?
If you are looking to rent then there are several areas around the university which are pretty nice to live in. I would say that some areas are very student-focused (eg: noisy at night) like parts of Dereham Road, and anywhere within the 'Golden Triangle' which is the section of the city between Unthank and Earlham Road.
If you have a bit of budget for your renting, Eaton and Cringleford are extremely nice areas to live, very quiet and pleasant. However it all depends on your preferences. I assume you mean UEA and not NUA?
NUA would be a different story, however the main thing I would say is steer clear of Alysham Road and any part of the Mile Cross area of the city as these are mainly council properties, and it's not got the best reputation.
Hope all that info helps,
