The university building itself is amazing, initially. When actually trying to do work that oyu need to concentrate on, the big open spaces that 'encourage collaboration' are very hard to work in, constant noise being heard all over the building, having lectures back to back with a class having a different leacture and not being able to hear whats being said is very frustrating. There is plenty of options of where to eat, being next to the o2 and having multiple restaurants all around, it can get very expensive. There is no s.u bar meaning there is no where for students to specifically go to drink. The head of events (who has just finished his course and is leaving uni now) organised a couple of random events which were okay, the same people went and they got boring, they were very hit-or-miss. The new head of events just elected for enxt year has a lot of big ideas that sound fun and involve more students and cater for different tastes, however, due to the way the SU is currently funded at our university, i am doubtful at how many of these ideas will actually come to anything. There is plent of space around the uni to sit with friends and work or just chat, but in some cases, there will be a lecture and you will have to move.
