Hartpury campus was great for being a student. Though it has its limitations on local accessible amenities like the shops and stuff, they provide a small useful shop onsite as well as a more than adequate cafeteria and 'wine bar', and the bus services that run to and from hartpury to gloucester are good and fairly regular. It is much easier if you can drive, or have friends who drive, but it's do-able, only limitations are bank holidays/half terms where little or nothing runs. The food prices in the little shop are good, and there's quite a broad selection of shops in gloucester which is only 10-15 minutes away, with tescos, asdas and iceland ect. The drink prices on campus arent half bad, and the atmosphere is nice, quiet at times but good for a chat with friends and a game of pool, plus their nachos are crackin'. The nightlife is not very 'big city', but the weatherspoons is a great place to get your pre-drink on, and Liquid is the big club of the town, which is a student choice, wednesday being the student night. Monday nights are quite big in Cheltenham, which is a little further away, and only ideal if you like a night out before lectures the next morning. If I could say I'd wish I had known about anything it really would have been the isolation factor. Luckily I had friends who drove, and the buses are good, but it's limiting. Plus, lugging your food shopping back on the bus and up a little hill a couple mins from accomodation is quite tiring. Other than that there's fairly good provisions, it's a sports lovers dream campus, and the gym is supposedly quite good. The accomodation in itself is very basic, but not horrific like some places. It can be made homely if you feel so inclined, and bases 8 people to a floor, in 2 floor blocks mostly. Kitchens are again, basic but adequate.
