42's nightclub's legendary Thursday night 'Skint' is one of the best Student Nights in Manchester; with free entry, £1 bottles, 50p shots & free drinks with a flyer too. Playing a great range of alternative and dance music to keep the young crowds buzzing, 42nd Street really knows how to treat the students of Manchester!

Mint Lounge

With £2 entry every Friday Mint Lounge is one of the more affordable and trendy student nights in Manchester and a haven for party lovers; add into the mix the amazing cutting-edge live acts they get on a regular basis (Florence + The Machine, Kode 9, Friendly Fires and Roots Manuva). They also have an epic sound system that pulls in the student crowds for an affordable student night in the Northern Quarter.


Murkage offers Rap and Hip Hop every Thursday from 11pm into the early hours from one of the best Manchester Clubs, South. Look out for special events where top UK MCs will be playing drawing in a great student following thanks to cheap drinks offers and a lively atmosphere. If this sounds like your type of music then definitely give it a go and you are unlikely to be disappointed.

They have great regular nights running through the week but their Thursday night staple "Back By Demand" is a massive winner with the young indie crowd and makes for a great affordable student night in Manchester.
