      Solely on Sutton Bonington there is not a huge amount of resources available for you. However, the campus is growing day by day and there is the fab opportunity to either go to another campus and loan books from there or if you can't be bothered to get them delivered the next day to your campus! In terms of sports facilities, again Sutton Bonington have nothing compared to that available on Main Campus but there is a new gym and leisure centre with the only downfall (in my opinion) being the lack of a pool - the one on Main Campus is huge though and easy to get to on the FREE hopper bus which goes from our campus to main campus everyday!

      Broadgate show you the best accomodation avaliable, where as I ended up in one of the smaller style flats - with no social space (didnt even have a dining table to eat at), would definitely have chosen differently had I have know this was likely to happen. However, I didn't see other types of accomodation so couldnt compare if others are better. In the future I would recommend to other students to really try and pick carefully where you live, it is important. Ask to see all the typesof accomodation, and try and choose somewhere with a big kitchen and has couches.

      It's a good idea to think about how much you will cook. If you have no interest or time for cookery then catered may be better suited to you, but you then have to comply to certain times for your dinner. Self catered gives far more scope, but sharing a kitchen can sometimes be problematic. If you make friends with your flat the kitchen is a great space to hang out, without having to mingle with people you do not know, as in a common room, although there are no provided tvs like there is in catered hall's common rooms.

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.
