York St. John's library facilities cater for everyone; the size may seem some what bewildering at first, however you will be taught how to use it: from taking out a book, using the printers and how to Harvard Reference. This allows all students, including those not so technically able to make the most out of the facilities. If the resource you're looking for is not available then it is likely that you will be able to find the information using the online library which also includes a large amount of resources. Not only is the library good for independent work in quiet zones, but it also is a great place to complete group work using the booths which allow laptops to be connected to large screens so everyone in the group can be involved.×

As long as you've sorted out where your money is coming in, either by way of student finance and/or parents, or even part time jobs. It doesn't really matter how much you spend as long as you take responsibility for your own actions. Do organise a budget of weekly expenses so that you're not tempted on spending too much on outings and then have no money to buy food.×

for the size of the university there amount of social facilities and space is fantastic. the student union is a nice size that is well equipt for drinking and just meeting friends. the library is brilliant for studying and also catching up with people. the sport facilities are not great but the uni has recently purchased some new sports grounds near to the campus which should be good.×

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.
