Not enough variety of eating places on campus. Greggs is best value for money. The rest of them are poor quality and too expensive. Disgusting food in the gateway.I would suggest bringing your own food, shopping in lidl or Aldi.×

The main library is open 24/7 which is great when you have lots of assignments. City Space is a modern building with up to date machines and facilities. There are lots of places to recycle within the University buildings. The college campus is so-so. Some buildings are nice while others are not, it needs modernising. The time it takes to turn on the college computers/laptop and log in is ridiculous as it takes 5 minutes to load to the log in screen and a further 5 minutes to load up after logging on.×
Halls were very good. Provided appliances etc and energy. Very eco friendly. Internet needed fixing constantly however.Report

They are awful and really not worth the price at all! The walls are thin and you can hear everything, there is no privacy and the flat is cleaned much less than needs be. The windows are single glazed so it is freezing in winter and the heater needs to be on constantly.Noisy and there is no good aspect to it.Yes other halls are better such as Scotia Quay which has ensuite bathrooms.The Forge seems to host and have a lot of parties, Scotia Quay seems to have the best facilities×

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.
