    I'd like to praise the University of Leicester. It's got some interesting history to it - the poet Phillip Larkin was once a librarian there (before he moved to Hull) and David Attenborough was born in a house on the grounds. The novel Lucky Jim was said to be inspired by it. It's where DNA profiling was invented. It is involved in the UK space centre based in Leicester. It's got a building that is particularly famous in architecture (the Engineering building) although most other buildings are lovely as well (as long as you like some Brutalism included). It's a got a great students union in a building that you need a map to navigate. It's highly rated for Medicine , Maths, Biomedical Sciences. It's got lovely halls of residences and a botanical garden.

    Glasgow because my building must be the only university building to have a commissioned vagina statue outside.

    Did you see the huge snow penis outside Adam Smith back entrance the other day? Lols!

    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:
    I don't have exams on the 6th either but still think it's funny that they can't get the supplies in time.

    Also, Appleton Tower is so pretty, especially when they were occupying it and we had to get ID'd before we were allowed in.

    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.
    I could back up what I said with some arguments, but I feel it would ruin the point of the thread...

    The Gregory building, that statue is commonly known as the vagina stone

    I didn't see it in person but someone showed me a photograph of it

    Hmm, seems quite popular chat with everyone I know. Perhaps because I have class in that building though.
