University of Leicester

Cons

What are the worst things about studying at your university?

2018

"It can be very busy in and around campus, especially in regard to getting a spot in the library or other quiet or computer areas around campus. Another downside is that the university accommodation for first years is not on campus and it can be very expensive to get to the university from halls."
"Some of the buildings are old and dull. We have to pay for printing and the food on campus is expensive."
"Accommodation and eating on campus can be expensive. Most of the halls are not in the city but are a 20-minute bus ride away and the bus pass is expensive."
"Travelling from the first-year accommodation to campus is very long and expensive."
"The uni can communicate poorly at times and there are extortionate gym costs that are forced on you for sports teams."
"The university societies are not well advertised (plus the students' union is very unorganised). There is not a big SU and no hub to hang out in. There's not a lot of info about what is going on at the uni, I missed out on a lot of events as I did not know they were happening."

2016

"They don't record all lectures."
"Student union nights, too expensive and it's always the same."
"Student village is a bit far from the main campus, and there often aren't enough buses during busy times."
"No printers on campus so you have to go all the way into the uni or buy your own printer to be able to print."
"Sometimes the staff aren't as helpful as they could be. Food on campus is expensive, as is the gym. There's a lack of computers in the library."
"There is never enough computer space in the library, it's always full."
"First year halls are quite far away from campus, and the bus pass is expensive."
"I am doing a joint honours degree, I've found there has been poor communication between departments in the past."
"Having to take the bus every morning from Oadby. Oadby is lovely but its too far away and many students fail to attend lectures because of this. I wish I didn't live in halls, but it hasn't been too bad."
"I'm used to living in London and Leicester is a bit small. The university is also quite small."
