Location of university

Please comment on the location of your university (city, town, etc), the campus, the facilities, and student accommodation.

2016

"The location is good but student accommodation is quite expensive."
"The facilities are great as they are all situated on campus (gym, union, library etc), although the location of the campus is quite out of the way."
"It's a lovely location. The campus is well kept and modern. The facilities are of a good quality."
"Great campus, about 15–20 minutes away from the city centre of Aberdeen by bus, nice facilities."
"We have no union bar, unlike other universities, which is annoying. Facilities at the university are good with plenty of space to hang out with friends."
"The university is unfortunately quite far away from student accommodation and the city centre. However, the bus system is very good."
"The only issue with RGU is that it is at Garthdee so you have to get a bus across town or drive to the campus and there are not a lot of parking facilities. The campus itself is great and really modern with lots of places to get food, sit down, chat and study. Student accommodation is also good with halls all around Aberdeen."
"The location is amazing. It's by the river, ten minutes' ride out of the city centre."
"It's in a quiet area just outside of the city centre. It's great for commuting from all parts of the city."
"Everything is in one place, which is handy. It's out of town but not too far. Student accommodation is ace if you are central."
