Wednesday night is student night on wind street where all clubs do amazing drink deals. Revolution, idols, walkabout and jack murphys are all popular with students. Bank statement also have some really good deals on for students, they hand out student freshens vouchers at the beginning of every academic year. There are plenty of pubs and nightclubs to go to and they cater to every music taste so there is always somewhere to go. Thursday night at sin city is called sin savers where they cater for students. Wednesday through to Sunday, there's something going on somewhere.×

The accommodation here is very cheap compared to a lot of unis in big towns and cities. My first year accommadation was very cheap. There are extremly close to where the lectures are, so there are no worries about having to go far for a lecture. The rooms themselves are quite basic. Desk and chair, bed, sink, wardrobe, bookshelf, lamp, internet access and mains. A lot of things have broken in this dorm. I do not know anyone who has not experienced a problem with accommadation. The door frames are soo weak that many people have had to have the doors repaired. Window handles have broken off, some people have problems with the radiators and ALL THE BEDS SQUEEK. Repairs are for the most part speedy though. Another problem is that the heating is either on full blast or not at all. This means that you have the choice of blistering heat or arctic temperatures. Even despite these problems, I love my accommatadion. Everyone in the dorms are very close due to our close proximity, and generally no one is ever too bothered about the hundreds of problems (for the most part!).×

Lampeter in general is cheap. However, there are no bargain shops (like Poundland or Aldi). Opportunities for part-time work are rare, but possible with enough ambition. The only major cost is transport as it is in the middle of nowhere - it is a bus for an hour to the nearest two stations and the fuel is overpriced.×
Drinks are cheap. Local shops are a little expensive. Sainsburys is always good for cheap food for students.Report
Uncertain if there is any political groupsReport

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.
