The library has an extensive range of academic texts and journals; seating is comfortable and nearly always available (except near exam time). There is no shortage of PC's, in the library or the local computer labs in academic buildings, however they are painfully slow and not recommended if you need to work in a hurry. Fairly high-speed WiFi is available on campus (except, unfortunately, in halls), so it makes sense to bring your own laptop along. Sports facilities are generally excellent, but we ought to have a swimming pool and an extra sports hall (only 2 at present). The gym isn't enormous but all of the exercise equipment is in good shape. Sufficient equipment is provided in Physics labs, although some pieces of apparatus are very dated (sometimes giving imprecise readings). Thankfully demonstrators are always on hand to help resolve technical issues and give advice.×

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.
