7.6 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"The campus has a gym, a 24-hour library, a couple of pubs, a cafe, a shop, a hairdressers, sports facilities, a cheap cinema and a local surgery. My student accommodation was the cheapest of them all and it shows. I would recommend that people spend a little more and get better halls. Wifi, although free, doesn't reach me in my room all the time and it is constantly disconnecting. There are not always people at reception for you to collect parcels, even though it's a 24-hour reception. There are only three washing machines and three tumble dryers for over 200 people, with one washing machine having been broken most of the year."
