University of Bath


What are the worst things about studying at your university?


"There's often a lack of study spaces, especially when it comes to exam time."
"You have to live in town after your first year, which can be a long commute of 30 or 40 minutes to university. The library is often crowded and there are limited spaces to sit at lunch time. It's also an expensive city to live in in terms of rent."
"The recent strikes were not handled as well as I think they could have been."
"The campus eateries are quite expensive."


"The clubs are tiny. Sometimes feels like you're stuck on campus."
"The level of overcrowding and over-subscription of students has led to no free spaces in the library, the gym or other university facilities."
"Bath is a nightmare for traffic."
"Difficult to find accommodation."
"The campus is overcrowded at peak times but they are working overtime to build more study spaces and accommodation (eg we have a new library currently being built in the city centre). Bath is a very busy town, which means there can be a lot of traffic and bus routes get really busy."
"Bus services are not always reliable and some staff can be difficult to reach or contact."
"Some student accommodation isn't very nice."
"The social life could be better and there's not enough space to work in the library etc."
"The lack of work spaces in the library and the lack of facilities that larger universities tend to offer. The cost of living is also high."
"It's expensive to live in Bath."
