The collegiate environment produces a really nice atmosphere where you can feel comfortable making new friends. It also provides an extra opportunity to meet people as you can have a mix of people from your course and college. The councilling services available to students are amazing, though the waiting list is very long, most colleges have at least 4 ports of call to speak to if not more. The accommodation is very cheap compared to most other unis with a lot of colleges offering student accommodation for all years of study.


Fantastic facilities, rooms are good. Rents are expensive. Cost of living in the city is generally high but college bars arent too expensive. Good sports teams availability and good sports facilities although this does vary significantly between colleges.
