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

2016

"Edinburgh is a wonderful city to be in. There are lots of student friendly shops and cafes as well as beautiful buildings, amazing facilities like gyms and museums. The campus is centrally located and accessible, though enough removed from the tourist centre that it's not too busy. Student accommodation is varied enough that there is something to suit everyone."
"Very central, excellent university gym and library facilities (if sometimes overcrowded)."
"The city is great. However, I like how, in just a ten minute walk, you can be out at Arthur's seat and away from the busyness of the city."
"I would say I love the whole university. Buildings are amazing and facilities good. However, the uni cafeteria costs a lot!"
"The location is brilliant, very central and everything tends to be in the one location (lectures, library, course building)."
"The city is wonderful, so long as you can live with the awful weather. The central campus is great, easy to reach, and everything you need is very close."
"Amazing, everything is just about within reach (although the King's Buildings campus could be better reached with more shuttle buses per hour)."
"The campus is pretty central, only around 10-20 minutes from most of the student accommodation here."
"I love the uni area, everything is very close-knit unless you're at studying sciences or veterinary as they have different campuses. Plenty of lunch spots, coffee shops and uni-related stores but often a lack of study space other than the library."
"The city is extremely interesting due to its history, it's also very picturesque and is good for shopping and going out for drinks. The campus is in a great location, the garden in George square is a lovely place to study on a summer's day."
