The library is great but dont expect to be able to access any computers or desks during exam and assignment times because its way too busy! And the same goes for other computer or study areas in the university. The societies are great and do join one! Its fantastic to help make friends and gets you involved with the students union directly, a definite if you want to keep up to date on upcoming events. There are some outdated classrooms but these are only used for simple lectures/study sessions. If the teaching requires monitors/screens/3D/computers/labs etc. you will get it! But this does mean should you ever need to use these places for your own needs (dissertation, specific software/equiptment etc) its hard to get them so book as far in advance as possible! Do ask questions! Do go to your lecturers and talk to them about worries/queries/ideas. That is what they are there for and it gives you a better understanding of the course overall and those who teach it. Each lecturer has a specific speciality and having a good idea who knows more about what helps you when you need to ask questions, so you know the right person to ask!
