The main student accommodation is a little basic but by far the best place to make friends. If you live within an hours distance of Norwich, it will be very unlikely to get into the accommodation so it is best to try and find private accommodation. There are 2 other forms of 'student' accommodation that is supplied by people separate to the university. Lovely, good price but again unlikely if you live close. Private let is fairly easy to get hold of, lots of bigger houses of 4 and 5. Golden triangle area is by far the cheapest place for students.×
Don't offer as much technical support as i would like. Don't teach enough skills in what to do after uni.Report

The only dissappointing aspect is the student aspect of the running of the University, although we have an SU president unfortunately our opinions in terms of nightlife/ social are not always listened too. The problem is, is that the bar is not owned by the university itself and this has become a problem for the students in that is dissallows cake sales, and art exhibitions which could help to raise money for students degree shows.×

NUCA's pretty much in the heart of Norwich, so we don't have a campus as such. As it's a small university, the Student Union is also tiny, so although there are a few clubs and societies we don't have the same variety as might be on offer at a much larger institution. It's nice though, because we all know the SU President, as opposed to him being someone we feel we can't approach. He's a lovely guy and always willing to take on suggestions for improvements or activities that SU could fund/ be involved with. We have a student bar which is run by a company independent of the NUCA SU. It's in a beautiful building which used to be a monastery I think. It's a great place to chill, get on with work, or socialise. They do limited food, but there isn't anywhere at NUCA you can buy hot food anymore, although there are plenty of cafes and food stalls nearby. The bar opens during some evenings too and often students hold fundraiser parties there, which a lot of people tend to come to and are always good nights. It's a really great social space. We don't have sports facilities, but you can get a Go-For-Less card from the city council which means you can swim for free, and get subsidised sessions at the gym. I believe our rugby team uses the facilities at UEA to train. There is some nice outside space, and a lot of students go to Norwich Playhouse, which is next door to the uni, to socialise and drink after uni. I love being so close to the city centre, as even though the uni don't have a vast range of facilities, we are so close to everything that Norwich has to offer it doesn't matter. I prefer it that way.×

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.
