The student union itself is a good way to meet up with friends and their meal deals are reasonable, the only problem being that you have to wait quite a while for your food. There are a wide range of sporting clubs to join although there doesn't seem to be many other clubs to join that are not sporty. There are lack of common rooms where you can meet friends to kill time between lectures and seminars and it seems the only places you can go to are the library, the cafe and the student union which are all fairly small. Even though the campus is in the countryside, it is still rather small and there aren't many places where you can sit outside. There needs to be areas with picnic benches.×
It's fine though Bath doesn't have many cheap shops. Drive to Asda in Longwell Green in a car share if you need to do a big shop.Report

The extended library opening hours are great with a wide range of books and online journals. Parking at newton park is easy and free, never had a problem with parking. There is a good range of on and off campus halls. 90% of lecturers i've been taught by are friendly and willing to help.×
organisation not very good at allReport

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.
