University of Portsmouth
7.3 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 144 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"My study area is basically in three buildings but they are all very close to each other. The facilities they provide are quite good. There are many computers for us to use and we can choose to work on our assignments there if the library is full. The facilities are almost the same as the library, just without all the books. We have a big library with different sections. Those who would like to discuss can choose to be at a discussing area and those who would like peace and quiet can choose to be in the quiet zone. I've stayed in three properties so far and each was a unique experience. The business building is located in the middle of the city centre and the outlet stores. Therefore, it is very convenient for students to do some groceries or have a walk after or before class."
