There is a club whithin the university campus and it has something going on almost every night and also one of the restaurants often turns into a club after 11pm. At that restaurant there are sometimes music venues as well, so there's a lot of stuff going on on campus concerning night life. Also, in town there are other clubs but the university clubs are the most popular among the students and that's where most events happen. They are also much cheaper than the town ones. The events are nice and diverse, the only thing that isn't good I guess are the bouncers, there have been quite a few complaints about them. But as long as you're not drunk and you don't get in trouble you'll be fine.×

The south courts have the best accommodation. They are ensuite. Although they are expensive they are quite spacious. The worse accommodation are south towers. They are cheap but they are dirty and can become quite noisy. The North towers are the best because they are affordable and quite good. The rooms are medium sized but cozy.×

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.
