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

2016

"It's far from other parts of the country and there aren't a lot of cultural events outside of the university."
"It's a good central location close to both town and accommodation."
"We're on a great campus, but some buildings could be improved."
"The University of Aberdeen is in the city and has two campuses, Foresterhill (the medical campus at the hospital) and Kings (the main campus located about 20 minutes' walk north of the city centre). The student accommodation is located at Hillhead, about a 20 minute walk north of the main campus through Seaton Park. The sports village is next to the main campus."
"There's not a lot to do in town and campus is quite far from the city centre. The accommodation is good so long as it's not provided by the uni."
"The university is conveniently located and facilities are good."
"Beautiful buildings with a brilliant and modern library. Aberdeen itself is a bit grey but there is plenty to do."
"Not the best weather. The campus and the facilities are modern and well maintained. The university is one of the oldest in the UK so it has really impressive traditional architecture as well. Student accommodation is generally expensive, but available."
"The campus is situated north of the city centre. The library and buildings etc are all situated on the same campus, which is handy. Some student accommodation is situated on campus and some to the north in the student village."
"It's close to the shops and close to town so there's no need to use public transport."
