The library is really good, if you need to get away to do some work before a deadline. There are quiet zones and group work areas, and it's open 24/7. Also the on-line reserve and renew is so easy to use. That I renewed a book over 15 times so I didn't have to buy a specific text book in the end. I just kept renewing it! Building names are really easy to locate, they are all related to the location in contrast to the library so 1W (1 west) 8W (8 west) etc. Most lecture halls have good lighting and desk to make notes etc apart from art lecture hall. If you're in there good luck! It's a bit of hit and miss whether you will have a desk or not. The labs are all well equipped and the technicians do a fantastic job so you have everything to do the practical. The sports facility is amazing, and they have good deals on around summer for classes and gym membership. There's wireless across the whole campus so if you bring your ipad or your laptop you can connect to the internet easily. There are PCs in the library but it can get busy sometimes.×

I had a great time, largely as I was lucky enough to be sharing with a great group of people, half of whom I still either live with now or see nearly everyday, and I still see the other half on a somewhat regular basis. The communal aspect of the hall for cooking was enjoyable, although the kitchen was often really rather messy, which at times could be a strain.×

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.
