I am disappointed with the nightlife, which I feel is highly driven towards the heavy drinkers who continue with the same old routine of pre-drinking, The Sugarhouse (the main uni club), McDonalds, bus home, crash in bed. There aren't any interesting events to cater for a wide variety of students, such as music venues. The bars on campus seem dead at the best of times and struggling to stay open, though maybe I haven't explored enough yet..×
every college has its own bar, and they're really good, they have a nice atmosphere and games such as poolReport

Transport to and from campus is regular and pretty cheap for a return, for those living off campus you can get a yearly pass, which in the long run saves, but cost in the short term if your on a tight budget. There are opportunities for part time work you just have to look for them on campus and off. I spent money on book that i didnt necessarily need so just be careful what you choose to buy. There are plenty of places to buy food and drink on campus, there is a chippy, pizza/kebab place, chinese and different cafes dotted around.×

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.
