Computer facilities are good and machines are fast for running high performance engineering applications. Lack of a central library at Bristol means that study space can be very hard to find at exam time.×

The accommodation I was placed in was owned by a private company. For the entire year it just felt like they were out to take our money and didn't really care about the well-being of students. I felt cut-off from the university as any activities (for example, during Fresher's week) were organised separately. The building I lived in had no character and the general state of repair of my room, and the flat as a whole, was poor. In addition, I was placed in a flat with people I share nothing in common with, and there was nobody else in the whole building on the same degree program as myself. I hated living in university accommodation and, as a result, I will be living at home next year.×
Student support - lots of help available, in many different forms, but you do have to seek it.Report

Living in Stoke Bishop is great because it's next to the Downs, so although it is a bit of a trek to Uni / the city if you walk, there's so much space for sport / bbqs, which is awesome in Summer. Durdham hall has really nice sized living / kitchen area, and is entirely en-suite. UH has a much smaller kitchen area, and mostly has shared bathrooms, but the rooms are a good size and it is cheap, probably the best value for money hall in Stoke Bishop.×
Course structures, accommodation and information about the cityReport
The sense of a student community isn't particularly strong due to the fact that there isn't really a main campus.Report

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.
