"The location is good, but finding buildings can be difficult at times. Laptops or computers should be supplied on temporary loan throughout the day to limit clusters in the library."
"There are plenty of cafes and gyms around the area. There is also the Angel Centre, which has shops and a cinema just a few minutes away from the main campus. The only downside is that the central London location guarantees high prices."
"The location is very good. The school itself is super small and the library could be better. The accommodation is good but expensive."
"It's in central London so it couldn't be much more convenient for everything."
"The location is good and the campus is nice. We have limited facilities but they're good overall. Accommodation for first-year students is good and close by."
"The location of the uni is decent and in the heart of London. However, this makes food and travel etc expensive. The campus is becoming better."
"There are nearby parks and good local restaurants. We also have a shopping centre and cinema nearby. The campus is well spread, easy to move around and reduces human traffic."
"The location is quite accessible. The campus is kept tidy and neat and the facilities are great. The student accommodation is good, but more student halls near to university should be purchased by the uni."
"It would be nice to have more proper student accommodation that's closer to the university. That being said, the location is excellent and there are all sorts of interesting things to do in the area."
"I wish the library could be upgraded and improved on to accommodate more student and study spaces, especially individual study slots and plugs. Also, there should be extended hours during exam periods and it would be better if we had more cafeteria or vending machines nearby."
"The location is great and very central. There are lots of computer labs and places to chill and study. There are also nice little places to get food but it would be better if the bar stayed open later."
"The main library needs to be improved (more seats, larger range of books on offer and restrooms improved) as well as the canteen (too small) and socialising spaces (there are not so many)."
"The City is central London and it's quite a big campus for a London university. There are many facilities to take advantage of and varied accommodation."
"Centre of the City. The campus is not huge compared to other universities and, therefore, it's understandable that the facilities cannot be compared to campus universities. Nonetheless, a great deal of investment has been put into modernising the facility over the past two years."
"It's in London, so it's expensive but it's in a nice location. The cafeteria is improving but could be better for the prices charged."
"The campus is in the heart of Islington, and therefore London. It's the best! The facilities could be better and accommodation could be cheaper."
"The university facilities are amazing. It's easy to access through any means of transport."
"We're in a central London location. Study is easy to combine with work and other after-uni activities. Do not expect a traditional campus as it's too urbanised."
"The library is always packed."
