UWS Hamilton's academic facilities are excellent. The buildings are in good repair and while not the most modern of buildings, its clean and pleasant to be in. There are always plenty of resources available for use, from PCs, books and articles to help from staff with IT issues, finding resources etc. As a School of Nursing and Midwifery student, the skills labs are very well equipped and have excellent facilities like simulated mannequins- staff are brilliant at giving extra skills labs or helping groups book extra time in labs to practise skills.×
The halls of residence is located on campus allowing easy access to all buildings and facilities.Report

The undergraduate room, just beside the library is a very good place for meeting friends, or studying as well as eating as there are computers, tables and sofas available. Also, the querty's is also a good place in for the same reasons however it is smaller than the undergraduate room.×

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.
