The library is huge, I don't go there often so get lost in it, but it's a great space to go and work when you need quiet and no distractions. I tend to spend most of my time in the ECS building due to my subject - the labs have everything you could possibly need, there's usually someone around to help with whatever you need. There's also a huge amount of computers available, but these are usually all taken up at the busier times (lunchtime and early evening) - unless you get there at an unusual time, you may be in for a bit of a wait for a machine. All the computers in the main lab have two large screens and amazing processors, perfect for any work you have to do.×

The student accommodation was limited, especially in Winchester, 11 people sharing a kitchen can get intense. Not up to date with the Wifi. The rooms were on the small side but you all had your own bathroom. The great thing about halls is the social side, you meet a huge variety of people all in the same situation and all eager to make friends. I cant speak for southampton halls but I heard most are pretty similar.×
Tutorials and guest lectures are great. Great reputation when applying for jobs and internships.Report
uni amenities can be expensive considering how much money they already get off meReport
There's a lot of stuff for different abilitiesReport

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.
