7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"Not too far from town centre, short bus ride away which is good – although it isn't the best night life (only three main clubs). The campus and facilities are really nice. The townhouses (which I stayed in) were particularly nice accommodation and very sociable."
