Eating Out

There is no shortage of restaurants and cafeterias situated across our campus and in the surrounding urban area. Engomi is a vibrant neighbourhood in Nicosia, in which the University is located. It is home to more than 40 restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and bars, all within walking distance, where you can enjoy a meal, grab a quick coffee, take in some live music or sports events, or just wind down and relax with some friends. Popular chains like McDonald's, KFC, Bennigan's, and coffee shop favourites like Starbucks, Caffè Nero and many more are in close vicinity to our campus and usually packed with students coming together between classes.

You won’t be lacking for choice with the multitude of entertaining social activities, events and nightlife that exists on and off campus and which cater to all tastes and student budgets. A mix of nightclubs, parties, cinemas (including our on-campus Cine Studio movie theatre), excursions and other adventures are a great way to meet people, find new hobbies or even get involved in social societies and initiatives, gaining some valuable skills and experience along the way.
