2016

"The location is perfect. We're based in a lively and vibrant city that's full of activities to engage in. The campuses are great and the main campus is very convenient for commuters since the train station is quite close. The building at the management campus is one of a kind (a Yorkshire version of Hogwarts) and the environment is peaceful to work in. There's plenty of accommodation at the university and the recent introduction of The Green accommodation is highly commended on a national level. There are plenty of facilities provided to us by the university including the library, which is updated with recent books we require and there are many spacious computer rooms to use."
"It's a campus university with all housing very nearby."
"It's OK but I think there could be more shops surrounding it."
"We've got a good link to the city as we're only a short train journey to Leeds."
"Bradford city centre is quite small so the university has its own district but is only a 10-minute walk from the town centre and the train/bus station. There is a surplus of student accommodation in Bradford so there are many choices. However, I do think that the university's own accommodation, The Green, is overpriced and of poor quality."
"We're on a city campus and student halls are of an excellent standard but very expensive compared to local accommodation. Campus is relatively compact and functional but not attractive and there's not much green space on campus. Sports facilities are pretty poor and require investment."
"The city campus is only a 10-minute walk from the city centre."
"It's located in the city centre and student life is brilliant as events are always happening."
"The uni is very close to the city centre and there are shops nearby that are sufficient to students' needs. There is a gym at the campus and multiple student residences as well as shops."
"The location is great and there is a lot that Bradford has to offer from sight seeing to shopping. The campus is great as it's big and spacious and has a lot of food places nearby. It has great student accommodation close by too and the train station and buses can be accessed easily."
