Location of university

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

2016

"It's a campus university so it's easy to get around. However, it's right by the city centre so it's not entirely in a student bubble. Most accommodation is within walking distance of the university and city centre."
"The location is excellent and the campus and facilities are good. Student residences can be rather basic in the first year though and renting with agencies later can often come with problems."
"The university is in a great location, situated right by the city and Hyde Park. It's only a 15-minute walk into the city."
"The university and its facilities are in a prime city centre location. However, my halls of residence are a 40-minute walk from campus, which is an inconvenience. Many believe a bus pass should be included in the rent."
"The university is very central and beautiful (when not covered in scaffolding) and accommodation is, for the most part, nice but expensive. The city itself is my favourite part of the experience as it has such a variety of culture."
"The campus is on the outskirts of the city centre so it's only about a 10-minute walk into town. All the facilities are on campus and the gym and libraries are all really good. There is a wide range of student accommodation that can suit everyone's price ranges and preferences."
"The university itself is situated in a good area close to the city centre, which makes going into town very handy. I also like the proximity of the student housing area to the campus. The campus itself has a lot of good facilities but I'd like it if more of them were more accessible to everyone, particularly in terms of cost."
"The college location is near to the city centre. However, a lot self-catered accommodations are located in the countryside and that can be inconvenient."
"The university student accommodation is highly priced but of an excellent standard (I do think there should be cheaper accommodation available). Facilities on campus are excellent and Leeds is a brilliant city with plenty to do and is very accommodating for students."
"It's a campus uni that touches the city centre. It has incredible facilities and a great student union that's used by all students. There are good and new libraries as well as an amazing new gym complex. The accommodation varies but my halls were like a hotel."
