Needs more computers in the libraryReport
I did not live in halls, but they looked nice enough, they didn't seem to be particularly 'party central'.Report
Night life in local area isn't very good.Report
I would have liked to know my timetable properly as it is easier for some people to be at home and commute than pay rent.Report

Food and drink to buy on campus is quite expensive, it's all right if you need the odd bread or milk but is quite expensive if you can't be bothered to go into town. The shops in town are very good, loads of bargains and clothes shops too. There is a free bus into town so that doesn't cost anything. The university does part-time work for the students but it's limited. Printing in the library is expensive if you have to print off assignments. For performance you can buy your own costumes and props and get the department to pay you back but it all has to be done by forms and then the department owns the items you bought. Theatre tickets are expensive for the on campus theatre and has a discount deal but you have to use it by a certain time. The societies sometimes ask for money for the cost of hiring rooms or other items, which is sometimes very costly. The gym does some good deals but it isn't worth it if you don't go every week. TV license is very expensive if you want a TV in your room or to watch things live on the internet.×

The accommodation on campus is superb and I couldn't really fault it - I stayed in the Main Halls, and, although they were older and less modern than the newer halls built, they were big rooms and all had sinks, which made it a lot easier to wash dishes etc. The walls between rooms were quite thick, which meant that some sounds weren't heard from other rooms, but, due to the varying backgrounds of people living together for the first time, a lot of people can be very noisy and can disturb you a lot, especially within the first couple of weeks. However, there is an 11 o'clock curfew for excessive noise, and are numbers in each room with instructions of how to ring security if you would like to make a complaint, which allows a fall-back for those particularly annoying/loud nights. The kitchens were in decent working order and were tidy when we first moved in, and had all the amenities that were required - such as a toaster, freezer, oven, etc. Each room has a food locker to store things that you don't want other people eating, and each of these lockers locks, and there is a lot of storage space both in the kitchen and the rooms.×

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.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
