    • For student accommodation I probably would rate it a 3. It’s quite expensive compared to other places, and the more expensive ones are definitely way better. I live in the second most expensive and I really like my room and I share a bathroom with one person, whereas I’ve heard from friends that the cheaper (still around £150) aren’t as nice, being small and sharing a bathroom with lots of people. For the library it’s got a good selection, but if you can’t find a book you want, you can request it and they will get it in. So I’ll you’re in a bookshop and you don’t want to buy them, you can take photos and request them. Potentially the place is a little bit small in terms of seating but I’ve never not found somewhere. For art facilities it’s really good, it’s the reason I went here in the first place. I’ve mainly engaged with the woodwork, ceramics and bookbinding. They are approachable but it’s definitely best to show interest and get involved, so that the technicians know you. It can feel a awkward going to a workshop as a complete beginner but if you come up with a plan they are there to help

    • I enjoy the size of the campus - with a variety of food options and cafes, the campus has a nice community feel and it’s super close to other things in the city. The supports and general activities provided are great too, a lot is put into the union. The societies aren’t necessarily as big as they seem but I’ve still enjoyed to going to them
