There are several pubs within walking distance of the Uni that offer different event nights. There are many restaurants some of which have different deals on drinks and food such as 2 for 1 cocktails on a Monday etc. There is a place called the Malting's in the Farnham area which does music and cinema/theatre but it is hidden away and not well advertised. If you want to go to the cinema you will have to take the train to Aldershot or Woking. The main amount of noise disturbance comes more from events from the SU within the Uni rather than general outings. Fresher Week can be loud and trying but after that the worst is over - just the occasional night after that, strangely never around deadlines... :)×

Although the houses are spacious, the rooms are relatively small. The house system works nicely and there is plenty of open, green space for things like BBQs and casual sports. Could do with improving the on site porters as not very help since they switched to a different company. The cleaning staff are also rather unfriendly and unsympathetic to students who have morning classes on the days they clean and don't allow you the get your much needed breakfast!×

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.
