Location of university

Please comment on the location of your university (city, town, etc), the campus, the facilities, and student accommodation.

2016

"It's a busy town with a few good shops and bars but it's nowhere near as active as other universities close by such as Glasgow or Strathclyde. The facilities are excellent but the gym is a few miles away from campus."
"Easily accessible by car but can be difficult by public transport. It needs a bigger union in my opinion."
"The Hamilton campus and facilities were outdated. The Ayr campus was much more modern but it was also much more difficult to travel to."
"The uni is easy to get to by car, bus or train."
"It's a great location near a big city and town. It's easy to access by train, bus, car and bike."
"It isn't in the best of locations for nightlife but it is still a decent enough place to study. The IT and resources available are more than enough to help with this."
"Campus is in Paisley, which is a small town with little to do. A lot of the high street is boarded up and there are not many pubs. The library is decent but the students' union is awful and the gym is two miles from campus, making it inaccessible if you can't drive."
