Lola Lo's is very popular and it's the club I go to the most as it plays up-to-date and house music, on thurdays it's their student night. There has been a range of activities during the earlier part of the evening when open, they have done sumo wrestling, win money and different themes such as Mexican. These serve quite cheap drinks especially when you can get a free card that gives you some good deals on jagerbombs etc.×

We have a fairly large Student union bar, which also sells food. There are two canteen-type sections which sell hot food throughout the day and three coffe/tea stations. There is also a small shop, hairdressers, two ATMs, and a Waterstones. The availability of seating can vary throughout the day, lunch is usually very busy, but there is seating in the bottom floor of the library where you can talk and eat if the atrium seating area is full.×

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.
