Sleep all day, party all night - live up to the student stereotype with Tiger Tiger Cardiff, which is open until 3am, seven nights a week. The massive club has several rooms for you to flit between, from pretending you were born before the 90s with its disco floor to singing your heart out in the karaoke room.

Perfect for anyone on a budget, Revs has got the goods when it comes to cheap drinks, tunes and a big atmosphere. Alongside DJs spinning tracks throughout the night, the venue's talented team of bartenders use an arsenal of ingredients to shake up some of the most creative cocktails in town - and they won't make a dent in your loan either.

PRYZM Cardiff

With seven rooms including the main arena, PRYZM is one of Cardiff's biggest nightclubs and perfect for a full-on, up-all-night party. Fear not if the student loan hasn't come through yet, vodka mixer is £1.50 and Jagerbombs are £2 throughout the week.

Probably the most popular student club in the city, Y Plas is the Cardiff University union hotspot that offers a range of pocket-friendly nights out. Head over for themed bashes, live music and society socials, safe in the knowledge that you're within stumbling distance from your halls.

VKs at the ready kids because Metros is serving up nothing but the best in cheap drinks and excellent tunes. Bringing you the biggest throwback pop parties and alternative student club nights, you're always in for a good time at this Bakers Row haunt.

A favourite amongst Cardiff's creative student crowd, Womanby Street's Clwb Ifor Bach is a go-to for DJ nights as much as live music. Whether you're getting down at classic pop, funk and soul soirees or dirty old rock, they've got a mix of genres across three floors.
