      Everyday expenses

      There's about 5 Costa's on campus and they're a bit cheaper than normal Costa's so that's good. There's also a SPAR shop which is quite expensive. Platt Halls and Usher are near campus so you can walk without incurring any travel costs however Ivy is pretty far so you'd need to get the tube or bus.

      one shouldn't expect too much in archway campus. computers are old and slow and very few in number - often all will be taken. library is small and there's literary fighting over books going on. some most important books are available only for 7 day loan and in very small number, so, students have to request book (take it away from some other student), use it for 7 days and then quickly bring back, because other students are waiting in queue for the same book, and as soon as you return the book, you have to request it again immediately, and take it again from another student, and so it goes for the whole year. there's clearly not enough basic textbooks in the library. buildings are ok, but there's often not enough room, so you'll be having the same class ir different rooms every week and sometimes there is no room available, and a class can be held in gym. however, uni is very supportative if you show initiative to do something and you can pretty much get as much as you want out of it after learning how to cope with some unchangable circumstances.

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.
