In a few words
"Campus is good. Instead of having one big SU building we have bars and JCRs all around campus, which is nice. The library is really good and open 24/7. The city of York is absolutely fantastic as well as being beautiful and it has a huge number of places to eat and drink as well as lots of bars, pubs and clubs."
