In a few words
"I really like the location. My halls specifically are on a nice residential road and just on the edge of the city centre. The city isn't that far from London and the train is pretty fast, so that's definitely a positive. The campus itself is nice and there's always something going on. The facilities are good, although I think that popular library books in high demand are often low in supply and it's sometimes difficult to get hold of them. Also, there is no specific building for my subject, which is a bit of a shame. We always have our lectures in random buildings like the engineering building, music, chemistry. It would have been nice to have our own building on Highfield. As for the accommodation, I'm quite happy with it. It's a lot nicer than other uni's halls that I have seen. Also, I like the way we have maintenance, who are so quick and solve any problems you have with heating/electrics/broken things etc."
