1st year house with 15 occupants, not very modern and old wooden windows a 15 minute walk from the university. Other students were loud and often burst into the room drunk in the middle of the night. Common room was dark with a sticky floor due to the amount of alcohol spilt on it. Also, heating was constantly on so way too hot in spring - we had to buy fans as window only opened a little. On the positive side the area was quiet and close to shops.×

The student union is a good cheep night out and it usually has fun themed nights on and good acts. There is a starbucks on campus which means that a great cup of coffee is available during most of the day. The food on campus both in the bistro and in the main cafe is great and resonably priced they haved themed days from around the world everyday in the main cafe and this helps to change up the food that is available during the week. there is also a good few common areas not just in the halls but also in some of the main buldings and there are a few picnic areas located outside of the builduings where you can meet up with friends and just chill out without having to buy any food or anything.×

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.
