You can get a hot main meal for a few pounds and a cheap good breakfast in the food hall. Costa is nearly full Costa prices but everywhere else is much cheaper. You can get a coffee for about 80p. Just over the road from the campus is a Tesco express, KFC, Starbucks, numerous pubs etc and 2mins to high street shops. Big Tesco's and Asda 5mins car drive and the SU organise trips there for residents. Your right in the city so good job opportunities within easy walk, lots of bar and shop jobs. There is no car parking on site and Cambridge parking is expensive the best way to travel in is on one of the 4 park and ride's. Currently 2.50 a day the bus drops at the Grafton centre just a 2min walk from campus and buses run till 8pm. Cambridge train station is also within walking distance and is a main station, lots of London students come in on the train, it's an hours journey (there are buses from the train station too). Cambridge bus station is in the centre of town and is a 10min walk. The "Aspire scholarship" is for all fee paying students and gives you 500 a year for books brought from the campus book shop, not just for academic books, they have the best sellers too and will order anything so don't spend a fortune on books before you go although money can also be used on stationary and laptops and if you don't spend it they give it to you in cash at the course end.×

Never under estimate how much you need to set aside for books! Transport is great and cheap tickets are available, London for about six pounds! Food on campus is more than reasonable but there are lots of local outlets close by. There is lots of part time work available providing you are prepared to look for it.×

Although the SU bar is not used during the day, The Tram Depot and The Bakers Arms, both opposite the University and less than 3 minutes away are the best places to have a pint, some food and to relax in after lectures.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
