Main Library has recently been renovated to a great standard-nice and modern. The University Gym has been fully restored recently, and has nice, new equipment-student memberships are also very reasonable.

The main library, although it looks ugly, is actually great once you find your way around, also the libraries at the other campuses are great for finding more books for your subject (especially the one at king's buildings for science and engineering) also the student advice centre is very helpful.×

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.
