The community feel to the University, you really feel involved as a student at UEA in the sporting competitions, events and politics of the University as well as students nationwide. It just has a really welcoming feel.×

The library is large and has a huge range of books, there are areas for group and private study. However during exam season it gets very busy and you often struggle to find a seat, and finding a computer is basically impossible. This is made worse by people saving seats by leaving their belongings there and coming back, sometimes hours later. During normal term time though, this is never a problem. The science labs which I have used are all very modern and have up to date equipment. You are given your own set of glassware at the start of the year that you are responsible for. I feel that the labs are well organised and very well kept. Due to their location, you also get stunning views across campus from the labs. The university has many concrete buildings which are around 50 years old. These buildings are very light due to the large amount of windows in them. They are all well kept and clean. The more modern buildings on campus are obviously better inside as they have not been used as much. All lecture theatres and seminar rooms fulfil their job and none of them look scruffy. The sports park at UEA has excellent facilities such as an olympic sized swimming pool, gym, climbing wall, and dance studio. The union has many sports clubs you can join and training usually takes place in the sports park. You can also go to classes here that arent run by the uni, but at a discounted student rate. Gym membership is not expensive, or you can pay as you go. The facilities here are very modern and impressive.×
everything is in excellent quality but visually it looks bad, concrete. University needs a good paint-job.Report

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.
