    Surrey is the best by far. A club and bars on campus, lots of jobs, great people, great lecturers, highest (I think) graduate employment in the UK... and some awesome parties

    Bath. The most beautiful city in the country; A world heritage site. The campus is not a large distance away from the city, and the campus is incredibly practical and has a small community vibe. We have shops, banks, post office, restaurants all situated on campus. Facilities are amazing. We were the first to have a 24hr Library; its huge and modern. We have some of the best sport facilities, rivalling Loughborough's sporting reputation. The student union is one of the best, and we have a newly built student centre, with many more developing plans on the way.

    We are academically one of the very best in the country. In the latest Research Assessment Exercise, two thirds of Bath's individual subject submissions were ranked in the top ten nationally, including over a third in the top five (Source is from Wikipedia). We specialise in the sciences, and we are one of a few universities in the country that offer a placement year, to gain valuable work experience; this might be why we have such fantastic graduate prospects. The student community is diverse; around 25% of the students are international. Everyone is welcomed here, it's hard not to make friends!

    Come to Bath. Its perfect...we have ducks.

    Anglia Ruskin, Cambridge campus - the paint's only slightly chipped, the toilets are usually clean and you get used to that strange smell.

    Spoiler:
    Show
    Seriously:

    - pretty central in location;
    - nice and compact, so no running across a huge campus to your lecture;
    - new, clean buildings with good facilities;
    - food's decent;
    - library is massive, plus Cambridge library is ten minutes away;
    - the people seem friendly;
    - things mostly run smoothly, and communication is efficient.

    Have no complaints about it.

    Edinburgh - Take home exams because of the snow, what more can you want?
    So jealous. Gutted my exams weren't on the 6th!

    I second Edinburgh. It's so ****ing pretty (Old College and McEwan Hall :love: And Teviot!), the city's got a lovely buzz to it and the nightlife is amazing. The only thing I hate is hearing all the 'gap yah dahhling' girls floating about. :ninja:

    Hey, im thinking of putting plymouth as my insurance
    is it true that only like 60% of first years get halls?
    My brother got accom fine, and he had transferred (admittedly it was only like a week after the start.) I'm from Cornwall and everyone from around here chooses Plymouth as a firm or at least an insurance, it attracts a lot more locals, I think that's why.

    Oxford. We're already off for christmas, which is both a good and a bad thing, and we tend to get looked after VERY well by our individual colleges. The college system is great- awesome sense of community you won't get anywhere else... other places have halls that are dotted all around cities, whereas everyone in my year is literally a 2 minute walk away. The teaching's top notch also!
    Aren't Cambridge's colleges bound to have just as good a community spirit?
    And the way you say it seems to imply that a college system is necessary for a good community spirit. Yet rarely does anyone ever have a bad word to say about Glasgow, for one, which doesn't have a college system. And there are some less ancient universities that have 'college' systems that are just halls of residences with unrelated teaching rooms in them - their sense of 'community' is less meaningful than elsewhere.
