Student parties on Tuesday, food is cheap for students, and professors are usually really kind.

It's fairly cheap, you can easily get a student dorm for cca 200€/month and the food for students is cheap.

No. Check student dorms first, if you can't get a room there, there are also private student dorm (a bit more expensive, but also with bigger rooms).

Yes. Students get coupons so you can get cheaper meals and most restaurants enable you to pay with those, so you'll pay 3€ per meal (includes: soup, main course, and a salad). My favorite spots: Loving Hut (vegan), Falafel, Papagayo, ...

Is the nightlife good in Maribor? Where is good to go?

Yes. Student parties every Tuesday (most clubs organize at least sth), otherwise in the city center you have to look for Poštna street (a street with a bunch of bars and good music).
