One of the best things about NUCA is that the university is based in the very centre of Norwich. Everything you might want is around - many cafes, bars, bookshops, the city library, as well as many green spaces, some exactly next to the uni. The studios themselves hold a very friendly vibe, so you can hang out and relax there if you'd rather stay inside. There are many free spaces (spacious lobbies, student union bar) to hang around, but since we are an arts uni, we can always have a nice cosy spot in our course studio to work and hang out.×

The SU is a great place to hang out and meet a diverse range of people but away from uni the local bars and cafe's offer a great atmosphere and have are a great place to meet friends. The Playhouse always has things going on and offers a wide range of acts/performances/musicians.×

Beechcroft. It's halls. Like any other halls your experience is down to the people you're with. I loved and hated my time due to the corridor i was put in where i got on far better with people in other corridors than most of the people i was living with. Though it's easy to simply walk over to other corridors. The kitchens are what drove me crazy as we had 12 people sharing two broken ovens and 2 sinks and 1 washing machine. the amount of dirty rotting food that was left in those sinks was horrific. Again, down to who you live with. The caretakers are lovely though and do their job as well as they can without infuriating everyone that lives there. Other than that, it was just a simple place to live, not too dissimilar to a hostel.×
The campus buildings are shut and i would like the uni to be open 24hrs Mon to FriReport

The university is small and does not have a large campus or a student village. so it will be a disappointment to any students looking for that experience. and as the university is still small it has a lot of work to be done to it, and some of the resources [example choice of books at library] are limited, but it s not a problem as they can be found elsewhere in the city.×

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.
