In a few words
"The city location is good. It's not too big but still lively and there's still a lot to do. The campus is spread out but not so much as to be an issue and it's good because you don't get bored going into different places. It can be annoying if you have to walk from one end to the other though. I love the main libraries (Information Commons and Diamond) as being open 24 hours is the best thing ever and the facilities available are quite varied and good. My accommodation is private although attained through the university and I have to say it is very good. It's close to the uni and the rooms are quite spacious."
