Location of university

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

2016

"The campus is outside a smallish town (Falmouth) with beautiful scenery. It also has beaches and is quieter than a university in a big city. The facilities are all good, partly because the campus is only 10 years old."
"The campus is modern and located within walking distance of the city. The only problem with it is all the hills!"
"It's a small town with a pretty campus close to beaches. The student accommodation is very varied but you pay for what you get, although it is quite expensive in Exeter."
"The city of Exeter is close by and, for many students, seems relatively small. Coming from a rural background I found this to be a perfect city for me though. The campus is green and welcoming with many modern buildings, although some are in need of refurbishment. However, it is a beautiful campus overall and is a pleasure to work in as well as being situated in a gorgeous part of the country."
"Exeter is lovely as a town in a countryside location that brings with it a slow, relaxed lifestyle for a student. The campus and facilities are modern with a huge amount of investment over the past few years that's already showing results with the Forum building and the sports facilities that helped us to achieve Sunday Times Sports University of the Year. Student accommodation was clean, modern and comfortable on the whole with private accommodation around Exeter being available and cosy."
"Everything is very close. The first year accommodation is a 10 to 20 minute walk from campus and both second and third year 10 to 30 minutes away. Accommodation varies in price according to how close it is to the uni and the town has a lot of shops and places to eat."
"Lafrowda, Rowe and Penny C are the best locations for first year accommodation for the Streatham campus as they're five minutes from everything. The city itself is beautiful and it's a 15 minute walk to the quay, which is cute and the choice of shops in town is decent. We have standard high street and some high-end shops too."
"The location is a downside, I would say, as it is quite far from London so can be hard to get here for international students. The town, however, is lovely. The campus is very well equipped, though you will rarely be able to find a place in the library. The student accommodation looks good, but there are not as many places as there could be."
"It's a beautiful campus that's close to the city centre but provides everything on campus so you don't actually have to go into town. Student accommodation is decent but expensive for what it is and there needs to be more study areas, there just aren't enough places to go."
"The location is excellent, a campus within the city. Accommodation is good (when you can find it) but very expensive, no matter the location."
