Cardiff University
7.4 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 240 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"The ASSL library is really cold, which actually prevents me from studying there. It's also the only library open 24 hours. There tends to be very little space, especially when exam time roles around. Trying to find anywhere on campus to study is near impossible if you don't stay all day. It is inevitable it'll be busy, but there is literally nowhere to go."
