What are the worst things about studying at your university?


"Having to book club tickets in advance and living up to a 45-minute walk from campus in second year. There are also busy libraries and gym classes."
"It can get busy and the different campuses can be difficult to get to. Sometimes things can lack organisation."
"The accommodation is mostly catered, which may not suit everyone."
"The costs of living can be high and places are often too crowded."
"Unless you have a scholarship or sponsor, the fees can be expensive."
"There are limited computer resources as well as personal and group workspaces."
"Some lectures are on opposite sides of the campus but held one after another."
"It's quite expensive to live here and there are lots of hills."
"My lectures are located pretty far from the central campus."
"There are currently loads of renovations going on, it's impossible to get Crisis nightclub tickets and the SU can be awful."


"There's a lack of car parking spaces available for students."
"The campus is situated quite far from the city centre, which can occasionally be a hindrance."
"Some facilities are poor and there have been cuts made to my department."
"The location of the campus is too far away from the city for my liking."
"The prices for accommodation are quite high for a university."
"Some lecturers don't always listen to feedback very well and the university doesn't consult students much about big changes to the university or courses."
"The mental health services don't always provide as much help as I'd like."
"You might be required to do a lot of travelling for your placements."
"Some of the halls are catered and the food isn't always nice. The sports teams can be really competitive and hard to join."
