Location of university

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

2016

"The accommodation on campus is generally really good and is all very sociable. They are all relatively close to shops and eating places. The town is beautiful and safe with good bus links running 24/7."
"The town itself is beautiful but cannot offer as much for a student as somewhere like Bristol. The campus architecture is pretty ugly and dated, even the new builds are not aesthetically pleasing to the eye. However, the sports facilities are the highlight of the university in my opinion, boasting the training grounds for GB teams and famous athletes."
"Campus is ideal for me and perfect for someone who wants a smaller university. The city is beautiful and a stone's throw from campus."
"It is located just outside the city centre. The bus takes about 10 minutes from the city centre and is very regular (every five minutes at peak times). It is a campus university with teaching rooms, accommodation and a gym all very close to each other. The Sports Training Village is amazing with professional athletes often training there. The library is open 24 hours a day and is well stocked. There is a wide range of student accommodation of all prices ranging from single rooms with a shared bathroom to double rooms with an en-suite, they cater for all budgets. All accommodation blocks are near to each other and to the lecture halls and library."
"The campus is not very large so services and facilities are easy to reach from different areas of the campus and student accommodation on site. The campus is a 15-20 minute bus ride to town so it is very accessible. However, other students may have to travel further depending on how far they live from town."
"Campus is offset from the city. There's a huge range of accommodation but all are well looked after and have friendly staff. The city is friendly and safe with a good nightlife that's not too rowdy and we have amazing sports facilities."
"The location is great since it's so close to the town centre. The campus is small enough to know where everything is and the facilities are modern but overcrowded. There is a wide range of accommodation available to cater for all sorts of budgets."
"Our campus is on the hill, an hour's walking distance from the city centre. We have world-class sports facilities and a small library. There's a high standard of student accommodation but it's inadequate to accommodate all international and first-year students."
"Student accommodation is expensive compared to some other universities and private rent is also expensive. The city is a good size as well as being very safe and friendly with enough nightlife to satisfy most people. There are fantastic spots facilities but the library is far too small."
"The student numbers have grown a lot and the facilities are still catching up. It can be a struggle to find work space but otherwise the campus and facilities are great."
