There are two libraries at hand to students, however they are situated at different parts of the campus, for students that live on one side are not able to access material related to the law department because they are on the other side. Similarly a business student would not be able to acces books from the other campus. The buildings are adequate.×

We have the O.T.M (Old Tawnlaw Mill) which although quaint on the outside with ducks patrolling the area and a stream/waterfall passing alongside, inside is the Student Union with a Gym and a large refectory and a bar with a mixing desk in which different students get to guest DJ every so often. A large patio seamlessly leads from the bar where people hang out whilst drinking. There is also on the 2nd floor a music studio for people to jam in.×

Student Union is good, frequently arranging lots of events and keeping students informed of whats going on at the uni. Good sports facilities with a gym that is good value, basketball courts and space to play football. University bar good but small. Very few communal areas to meet friends and relax but access to cafeteria after hours is possible.×
Tutorials, there is one every week per subject in which a tutor will discuss your progress from each weekReport

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.
