7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction

In a few words
"The city is small and cosy. It has everything I need, and the public transport is good so it's easy to jump on a train to Manchester if you want to go to a bigger city. The campus is pretty small, but it does still have most of the stuff you need daily. I never need to walk more than 10 minutes from my accommodation to get to a seminar or lecture or anywhere around campus. The facilities are great. We have a big and newly refurbished library, learning zone, loads of bars, pubs and cafes, we have study zone and other study rooms around campus. We also have two grocery shops with convenient opening times and a medical centre, pharmacy, bus station and so on. Everything you need and a lot more. My en suite is very nice. Relatively big and light room with good storage possibilities, a big desk, closet with mirror and shelves. It is very nice having my own bathroom with shower, toilet, sink and mirror. The kitchen is big and open with good storage, two sinks, two hobs, two fridge/freezers and other stuff you need."
