"We're situated on the edge of the town centre with great transport links. It's a modern campus that's all on one site with a well-stocked library and computer facilities. There's also a good range of food outlets across the campus."
"The location is great as there is lots to do and its economy is thriving. Plus, because it's not a city, it is fairly priced when it comes to drinks and food etc. The campus is nice with a mixture of fresh new buildings and stunning old buildings filled with character. Facility-wise, there could be more computers in the library as it can be a struggle to find somewhere to work at peak times. Also, the gym is good for cardio but not great for anything else. The student parking is dire but there are many clubs and bars and so the nightlife is pretty good."
"The location and campus is excellent. It's not far to walk to the train station and also the student accommodation buildings are amazing to stay in."
"We're close to town so have easy access to transport, food and equipment. Student parking facilities are pretty poor though and made even more so when a huge car park was removed and built on with just staff parking made available. I've got no faults for the campus as the facilities are often great."
"The location is great as it's right in the town centre, meaning wherever you live in town is quite easy to get to and the whole town is right there outside the university. Unfortunately, it's just a standard sort of town with the same shops as everywhere else."
"There is loads of accommodation, from really modern to cheap and cheerful. It's local to everything and there's loads to do both at uni and in the surrounding area. The only negative is that, in terms of facilities, the uni could do with more computers and library space during the week and especially at exam time."
"Everything is very close by and accessible, especially student accommodation, and it has a fantastic gym and sports hall for all to use."
"We have lots of places to eat both on and surrounding the campus."
"Some student accommodation (Little Aspley) is a bit overpriced. Food outlets on campus are definitely too expensive for the majority of students and we need more space and seating areas to eat. A study area for students with disabilities would be brilliant. The gym facilities are fantastic though and I can't fault them."
"The library is amazing, the campus is very spacious and we have amazing facilities."
"It's a small town but it's picked up. Some things about the campus could be nicer eg the labs are outdated."
"The university itself is brilliantly placed but the preferred student accommodation is very far away and only accessible via an unreliable and oversubscribed bus service."
"Everything is pretty accessible from the accommodation I stay in but the main student accommodation, Storthes, is a bus journey away and is far from everything."
"It's a very good town as it feels like it has as much as you'd find in a city. It has everything you need plus the town is close to the university."
"I love the city and the nightlife. The university is great and very modern."
"The university is in the middle of Huddersfield and is well placed. We're only a short walk from the supermarket and the town centre with plenty of student accommodation options available."
"It's in the town centre so it's very easy to access transport or to meet friends for social activities. It's a great location."
"Very good. There is one large campus and all the buildings and facilities are very accessible."
"The university is in the town centre with all the shops being a few minutes walk away. Also, there's a lot of student accommodation nearby and more is being built."
